On 11 Mar 2009, the Institute of Materials, Minerals, and Mining will conduct a one-day conference in London (UK) entitled “Energy from Waste and Biomass. It’s a bit far for me to go, but I want to learn what transpires at it.
Waste is no longer an option! Resources that until recently were tipped into landfill, left to rot, allowed to escape to the atmosphere, or just left untapped, are now being identified as extra sources of energy and income. The Government have identified this as a priority area of technology, and much development work is being done in the UK to make the conversion technologies from waste and biomass to energy more efficient, and to transfer this technology to energy suppliers and local authorities.
