ISWA Study Tour Waste-to-Energy

Austria - Czech Republic

We are pleased to offer the 9th ISWA Study Tour Waste-to-Energy, June 24 - 29, 2018.


The technical tour combines site visits to 10 different plants and facilities in operation in Austria and the Czech Republic with accompanying seminars.


Over the week, you will see and learn about the Best Available Technologies (BAT) and installations for Waste-to-Energy, in Europe. The practical seminars on sustainable waste management focus on advanced resource and energy efficiency, recovery, treatment and safe intermediate storage of wastes, which allows for diversion of all organic waste exceeding 5 % TOC from landfill.


- Quality seminars taught by senior experts in waste management, environmental policy and engineering


- Discussion with operators and reputable engineering and policy experts


- Review of public acceptance of waste treatment plants (typical "LULU" projects  - locally unwanted land use and "NIMBY" - not in my backyard)


- A challenging and rewarding week with waste management peers from around the world.
