2022 Energy from Waste Conference

The Waste Management and Resource Recovery Association of Australia (WMRR) invites you to join us in Melbourne on the 16-17 March 2022 for the 2022 Energy from Waste Conference (#2022EFW).


Spanning myriad thermal and non-thermal technologies, from anaerobic digestion to gasification to processed engineered fuel, Energy from Waste (EfW)- also known as Waste to Energy (WtE) - can play a significant role in an integrated waste management and resource recovery system by harnessing energy from residual material, as proven in Europe, Asia, and the US. It is also a key piece in the emissions puzzle, driving our aspirations for a net zero future to reality. 

The theme for the conference (postponed to March 2022) is “The role of EfW in delivering a net zero future”, and aims to bring industry experts to the table to uncover pathways that will lead us to a low-carbon future. It will also focus on the regulatory landscape, planning and development, stakeholder engagement, and technology and innovation – the factors that are all the more pertinent today as proponents move forward in their EfW journey and more projects start to come online across Australia.

The national Energy from Waste Conference is made possible with the support of our incredible sponsors.
