TOTeM46 – Waste to Energy: Status and perspectives of technologies
TOTeM46 - Waste to Energy: Status and perspectives of technologies
IFRF is pleased to announce the 46th TOTeM (Topic Orientated Technical Meeting), which will be held at the University of Pisa, Italy on 21-22 November 2019. The topic for this event is ’Waste to Energy: Status and perspectives of technologies’.
The adaptation of waste management to the Circular Economy paradigm is pushing toward higher and higher source separation levels, as well as promoting the development of new processes for the recovery of materials, including also thermal treatment. On one hand, higher source separation produces higher amounts of selection and recycling residues, which require proper treatment to ensure the sustainability of the whole system. On the other hand, the characteristics of some source separated waste streams do not allow the recovery of materials just through simple mechanical treatments. Therefore, thermal treatments are likely to continue playing a crucial role in closing the cycle and ensuring its effectiveness.
Under this new perspective, the aims of the TOTeM are to start analysing the current status and the main trends of the waste management world, to create collaboration opportunities among its stakeholders and IFRF members, as well as to set a framework to support IFRF members in evaluating the potential exploitation of their know how in this area of application.
