Energy from Waste

SMi is thrilled to announce the return of its 9th annual Energy from Waste conference that will bring together industry professionals and local councils working in waste, bioenergy, environmental services, and infrastructure finance.

It will strengthen knowledge in key topics such as the circular economy, refuse derived fuel, international markets, and European trade, while looking at the practicalities of heating projects and keeping attendees at the forefront of technological breakthroughs to adapt to the growing need for greener energy.
