Waste Conversion Congress

Philadelphia, Pa.  Why is waste conversion such big news throughout the global waste and energy markets?  Waste conversion is becoming the only viable answer to the waste problem spreading over the US. With landfills posing greater challenges and conventional incineration being hindered by increasingly tough regulations on emissions; technologies such as gasification, AD, landfill gas and waste to biofuels are the future of the waste to energy industry. The global waste conversion market, which is expanding at a huge rate, is expected to reach a value of $26 billion in 2016, whilst it is reported that the US market alone has the potential to reach a market value of $120 billion in the future. Despite these greatly encouraging forecasts, there are a number of challenges facing the Waste Conversion industry. Public opinion plagues permitting; The risk profiles of all waste conversion technologies can be high meaning project implementation is extremely hard and as such, very few waste conversion technologies reach full scale commercial viability.Thankfully the Waste Conversion Congress is perfectly placed to answer any and all issues on waste conversion. You can’t afford to miss this conference as we will bring together the leaders in finance, regulations, legislation and operations to give your project the greatest chance of succeeding. We are proud to welcome as speakers: Gershman, Brickner & Bratton, the Energy Recovery Council, the US EPACleveland Public PowerEnerkemWaste Management Inc Download the free brochure here
