Unlock the power within waste and learn how to harness it for sustainable energy solutions in our workshop on “Energy Recovery Processes from Waste.” This workshop explores cutting-edge technologies and practices for extracting valuable energy from various waste streams. 

Topics covered:

From Dump to Clean Energy – Developing High-Efficiency Waste to Energy Plants by Mr. Luuk Rietvelt, Regional Manager for APAC, Harvest Waste.

Did you know the most efficient Waste to Energy plant worldwide is developed and operating in AmsterdamBased on this technology, Harvest Waste develops large-scale High-Efficiency Waste to Energy plants, focusing on highly populated regions where the waste problem is the biggest. By avoiding waste from being dumped or landfilled we significantly reduce the emissions of greenhouse gases which enter the environment in the form of methane, along with all the visible pollution that come from unsustainable waste management. Because our plants create more electricity from the same amount of waste, we can operate with very limited gate fees or sometimes even without. This makes our business model viable where it’s needed most. 

Sustainable Decentralised Waste to Energy Solutions by Mr. Dennis de Vriend, Commercial Manager, DutchPowerGroup B.V.

Martin Luther King once said, “The time is always right to do something right”. Although that is true, time is limited concerning the waste problems worldwide. The clock is ticking and we can’t avoid emphasising raising awareness and the necessity of a circular economy in which, on the one hand, we have to limit the amount of waste in general and on the other hand reuse waste in a broader sense. Turn waste into value. 

In the transition to a circular economy, a decentralised approach is key: there is high flexibility, investments are much lower, less trucking, and most importantly energy in return for giving back to the community. Providing solutions with a social responsibility according to proven technologies. 

By combining different waste management technologies like separation, recycling, reuse, digesting, and incineration an integrated system can be implemented. 

Building Resilient and Scalable Business Model for Renewable Energy in Low- and Middle-Income Countries by Mr. Aart van den Beukel, Managing Director, Safisana.

Since its opening as 

one of the first waste-to-energy plants in West Africa, Safisana has been a pioneering and innovative company at heart. We were one of the first companies to get a Power Purchase Agreement with the Electricity Company of Ghana owned by the National Government. As part of our scaling strategy, we are now exploring new markets and business cases for compressed biogas in collaboration with large corporations who have high ESG ambitions in reducing carbon footprint and contributing to achieving SDGs in the local communities.
