Energy from Waste – Trash or Treasure?

The urban population in Southeast Asia and South Asia is projected to rise significantly over the next 10 years, and this staggering growth places significant pressure on governments in the region to find adequate solutions for effective and environmentally responsible waste management and electricity generation. Using existing projects as case studies, we will look at the technical, commercial and legal structures of Waste to Energy (WTE) projects, whilst also exploring risk and responsibility allocation.

In the context of existing Waste to Energy (WTE) projects across the region, our panel looked at the sector from different angles, including:

– The key considerations authorities and financiers should take into account when looking at WTE projects
– The top technological advances that make WTE a compelling choice
– Challenges in developing and operating WTE projects as Public Private Partnerships
– Opportunities and trends in the region
