Waste Workshop

Event: Supergen Bioenergy Hub - Waste Workshop

Date/Time: 2021-05-12T09:00:00Z2021-05-12T11:00:00Z

Location: Online
Description: The Supergen Bioenergy Hub works with academia, industry, government and societal stakeholders to develop sustainable bioenergy systems that support the UK’s transition to an affordable, resilient, low-carbon energy future.
The Sixth Carbon Budget released by the UK Committee on Climate Change last year suggested that the waste sector has a role to play in the UK’s path to net-zero, with landfill identified as a key opportunity to reduce the sector’s impact on the environment, accounting for approximately 60% of waste sector emissions.
This Supergen Bioenergy Hub workshop will bring together waste managers, policymakers, and academia to explore sustainable pathways available to the waste sector which will enable the production of heat and power, in addition to high-value products such as fuels and chemicals.
Our experts will be on hand to discuss their technical engineering knowledge and to explore how new technologies can deal with the changing face of waste in the UK, assisting waste managers, local authorities and consultants, in developing sustainable pathways for the management of municipal solid waste.
The workshop will facilitate the connection between academia and waste management in order to understand the current challenges the waste sector faces, to discuss the latest conversion technology options on offer, and begin the spatial mapping of waste streams in the UK that could support the development of more sustainable options for municipal solid waste.
If you are involved in waste management and are interested in sharing your perspectives via a short presentation during the workshop, please get in touch with Dan Taylor, Hub Stakeholder Engagement Manager via d.taylor2@aston.ac.uk.
The event will take place online and the virtual meeting room will be open to attendees 30 minutes prior to the event start, to allow opportunities for networking.
