    Now entering its sixth year, the Australasian Waste & Recycling Expo is the perfect environment to create new business efficiencies and opportunities.

    Looking at this year’s line up of seminar sessions and respected industry and government professionals, it’s evident that there’s a running theme of sustainability. Additionally, this year’s line-up of exhibitors and product offerings has a focus on sustainability with many presenting recycling and waste minimisation innovations.

    From new reforms on handling hazardous waste being showcased, to efforts and initiatives towards reducing landfill waste, the two-day expo aims to educate and inform those in the waste industry that sustainable practices are essential and not a luxury.

    The Energy from waste case studies and technologies seminar session will touch on groundbreaking technologies and case studies highlighting the efforts of companies like Qantas which is significantly reducing waste with rolling out a sustainable packaging program. Ancillary initiatives such as recycling on board flights, and also at various Qantas-owned facilities are all part of a long-term sustainability initiative by the airlines. Qantas has stated that it aims to reduce waste to landfill by 30% compared to 2009.

    The Energy from waste case studies and technologies seminar will be held on Thursday 13 August from 11am to 12.30pm. For more details and to book tickets, click here.
