Our aim is to identify the best available technologies for the treatment of various waste materials, conduct academic research and share this information by means of its publications and case studies. Be part of a global community of experts who share their knowledge to convert ever decreasing volumes of waste into greater and greater sources of energy.
Become inspired by us!
