When the opportunity arose to co-present a paper at the
7th International Symposium on Energy from Biomass and
Waste (EB and EfW) in Venice, it wasn't a difficult decision.
Although this was a professional engagement, I
nevertheless enjoyed the 3-day event as much for the
sights as for the learning and networking.
To start with the venue was amazing. Then there was the
relevance of the papers and the networking opportunities.
Hubert De Chefdebien of CNIM and Sven Anderson of B&W presented papers on the New Draft WI BREF, which will define the emissions from and operating requirements for new and existing EfW plants in the EU.
The paper that I co-presented with Dr Robert Gregory and Prab Mistry on the risks and some of the outcomes when operating an AD plant with HHW organic fraction.
