Waste-to-Energy: an essential element for circularity

Start/End date
Event type
Key Area

The FEAD event on 12 April from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. CET aims to demonstrate that waste-to-energy is a crucial link in the whole waste management chain and integral to the circular economy.

The whole waste-to-energy concept pushes waste processing up the waste hierarchy, to make it a key enabler for more recycling and a no-regret option for the safe treatment of non-recyclable waste. It saves CO2 emissions by replacing fossil fuels with residual waste to produce heat and electricity.

Speakers from the EU institutions and Member States, experts from the waste management sector, and stakeholders will discuss why and how future EU regulations, particularly the Taxonomy, should take a positive approach to waste-to-energy.

With the kind participation of:

  • Mr Peter WESSMAN, Senior Legal Officer, European Commission DG Environment, Unit for Waste management and Secondary Materials

  • Mr Peter KURTH, President of FEAD

  • Mr Markus HAUCK, Member of the Managing Board / Chief Financial Officer, EEW Energy from Waste GmbH, Germany

  • Ms Yoana YONCHEVA – FILYOVA, Chairwoman of the Bulgarian Recovery and Recycling Association, Bulgaria

  • Mr Janek VÄHK, Climate, Energy and Air Pollution Coordinator, Zero Waste Europe
