Environmental experts from the public and private sectors are lined up to speak in the free seminars at this year’s Recycling & Waste Management Exhibition (NEC, Birmingham, England from 14 to 16 September 2010). With over 500 exhibiting companies, three seminar theatres and a new Waste Minimisation Zone, RWM10 will show you how to cut costs, improve efficiency and reduce the amount of waste you produce.

RWM exhibitors will include companies and organisations operating throughout the supply chain from suppliers of bins, recyclers of a wide range of materials including paper and plastics to environmental consultants and waste management companies.

Visitors with a responsibility for energy and water resources as well as waste and recycling issues would benefit greatly from attending sessions within the Energy and Water Seminar Theatre (sponsored by Motherwell Bridge), which will provide updates on legislation and the latest energy conversion technologies as well as practical waste to energy case studies.

Legislation is the topic for day one (14 September) starting with a look at the country’s infrastructure and funding that is available for low carbon, renewable energy and energy from waste projects. The seminar’s speaker Antony Oliver, editor of New Civil Engineer will also examine the impact of the recession on funding, sources of money flow and the most appropriate infrastructure to support development. Following this session, Peter Jones, OBE and consultant for Ecolateral, will investigate the future challenges facing the waste management sector in terms of attitudes, investment and available technologies.

Further highlights will include an Environment Agency presentation examining the available energy from waste resources in the UK, while Aaron Berry, head of carbon and sustainability, The Renewable Fuels Agency will give an update on the UK’s Renewable Transport Fuel Obligation and the Renewable Energy Directive.

On day two (15 September) the focus shifts to waste to energy case studies. Antony Greener, waste strategy and development director, Nottingham City Council will outline how they managed to generate four per cent of the City’s energy from waste and renewables. The subject of financing energy from food waste will be covered by John Stephens, relationship manager with the Environment Team at Triodos Bank and Richard Gueterbock, director at Clearfleau will share the results of an investigation into the process of generating renewable energy from liquid effluent using innovative anaerobic digestion technologies.

Anaerobic digestion will also be discussed in the start of day three (16 September) when Norman Fulton, sales director at KMH Systems proposes separating municipal solid waste into fractions for use in anaerobic and refuse derived fuels. Subsequent presentations will include a review of the latest alternative technologies that could help the UK to comply with EU landfill regulations by Chris Oldfield, managing director at Riverside Waste Machinery and a waste to energy case study presentation about the Bioflame system from Bioflame’s managing director, Victor Buchanan.

Those working within local government could benefit by visiting the Local Authority Seminar Theatre (sponsored by SCA Recycling and Bywaters) as its three day programme will feature case studies on food waste collection, recycling solutions for flats, as well as revealing how councils are tackling commercial and industrial waste.

There will also be a themed day examining the topic of building and construction waste in the Business Seminar Theatre on the 15 September, offering a fascinating insight for those working within that industry. The day’s sessions will investigate methods for reducing waste, waste to energy plant construction, guidance on applying sustainable resource and waste management best practices and a look at the logistical benefits of in cab technology to aid waste collection.

Exhibitor highlights will include new gas monitoring equipment and a device for measuring volatile organic compounds from Shawcity Ltd (stand 176) and a rapid food waste decomposition system from Mechline Developments Ltd (stand 1947).

Shawcity’s new gas monitoring equipment includes the GasClam which can be installed in a borehole to enable continuous remote collection of gas data for up to three months and its GFM435 portable hand held multi gas analyzer and flow meter that allows borehole, atmospheric and flow pressure measurements to be taken. Shawcity will also launch its PhoCheck Tiger device for measuring volatile organic compounds. Meanwhile Mechline will be unveiling a new rapid food waste decomposition system which it claims can reduce up to 680kgs of food waste to grey waste water in just 24 hours.
