CEWEP Congress: Circular Economy Meets Energy Union

The link between the important EU initiatives on the Circular Economy and Energy Union will be a key talking point at the 8th Confederation of European Waste-to-Energy Plants (CEWEP) Congress in Rotterdam 17-18 June this year.

The link between the important EU initiatives on the Circular Economy and Energy Union will be a key talking point at the 8th Confederation of European Waste-to-Energy Plants (CEWEP) Congress in Rotterdam 17-18 June this year.

In 2016 the European Commission will deliver a communication paper that exploits the potential of Waste-to-Energy by establishing synergies between resource efficiency, energy efficiency, circular economy and climate change.

In Rotterdam you can hear first-hand what representatives of the EU Institutions, decision makers and the industry have to say.

The Congress will serve as an opportunity to have timely discussions on the latest policy developments and to hear all the news about Waste-to-Energy techniques and developments.

Participants will also see how the heat from Rotterdam’s Waste-to-Energy plant contributes to the city’s ambitious green initiatives – a good practice example of how Waste-to-Energy is part of the transition to the circular economy and green energy society.


A number of eminent speakers from the Dutch Presidency, the European Commission, the European Parliament, local decision makers, the waste industry and academia will be participating.
