BRUSSELS – European Suppliers of Waste-to-Energy Technology (ESWET) has invited three high-level speakers from EU institutions, industry, and research to discuss whether Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) can lead to carbon-neutral waste to energy:
Jannicke Bjerkas, Director CCS of Fortum Oslo Varme, whose CCS project at the Klemestrud Waste-to-Energy facility is one of the most advanced in Europe.
David Kearns, Senior Consultant at the Global CCS Institute, who signed in 2019 the report “Waste-to-Energy with CCS: A pathway to carbon-negative power generation“
Maria Velkova, Policy Officer in DG Climate Action at the European Commission, active in the Innovation Fund Programme and the development of the EU policy on carbon capture, utilization, and storage.
The conversation will focus on whether and how non-recyclable waste can deliver negative emissions, and which policies are needed for Europe to lead this process.
At the end of the discussion, moderated by Patrick Clerens, ESWET Secretary-General, the participants will have time for an extensive Q&A session with the speakers.
