Waste to Energy Symposium

The Recycling Council of Alberta will host a full-day symposium on Waste to Energy (WtE) in partnership with the Alberta Plastics Recycling Association.

WtE technologies are in operation around the world and include thermal treatment technologies such as gasification and pyrolysis, biological systems and waste to fuels. But how do these technologies work and what are the economic and environmental implications for managing waste? What role does WtE have as we try to build a Circular Economy and promote reduction and recycling in Alberta?

The first part of the workshop will provide attendees with an overview of the different technologies from leading WtE experts across North America. We will also be featuring speakers from Environment Canada and an overview on compliance for WtE facilities in Alberta from Alberta Environment and Parks.

The second part of the workshop will feature brief presentations from WtE companies currently operating in Alberta. The RCA is accepting speaker applications from local WtE companies who wish to be part of this event. If you would like the opportunity to be featured in this symposium, we would like to hear from you.

Attendees will develop a greater understanding of how these technologies work and the opportunities and challenges of local implementation
