Innovation in Waste Management
View flyer here
Dr Andy Rees' presentation will highlight the economic, social and environmental benefits to Wales of moving towards a circular economy where resources are kept in productive use for as long as possible. The context includes the new Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015, the Welsh Government's 2050 'one planet' resource use goal and the European Commission's recently published 'Circular Economy Package'.
Dr Katie Beverley from ECDW will cover the opportunities for a circular economy approach for critical raw materials (focussing perhaps on rare earths used in the electronic industry) and industrial wastes (focussing on industrial symbiosis opportunities). Katie will give examples, both from her own experience and from elsewhere.
