Some thirty countries around the world are represented in this group, with different socio-economic and cultural backgrounds, which allows the exchange of experiences and knowledge of very diverse realities and visions.
Last Thursday, the director of the Maresme Waste Consortium, Carles Salesa, took part in one of the annual meetings of the international working group on Energy Recovery led by the International Solid Waste Association (ISWA).
The director of the Maresme Waste Consortium has been a member of this working group for more than eight years as a representative of ATEGRUS, the Technical Association for Waste Management, which is the Spanish member of the International Solid Waste Association.
This worldwide working group, which involves different socio-economic and cultural realities, is made up of different agents from the academic world, administration, public companies or associations and sectors such as technology, consultancy, engineering or waste management itself. Beyond the exchange of experiences and knowledge of the different realities and visions of the countries that form part of this group, there is a dynamic of working together. With the participation of more than thirty countries from all over the world and two or three meetings each year, international work projects arise and synergies are created among the different entities that make up the group.
The latest project, the details of which were finalized at the last meeting held last week, is the White Book from WtE Technologies. A document on the situation and dissemination of energy recovery which, drawn up through the work of this group, has been the result of two years’ work and reflects the different realities that exist in the field of energy recovery on a global scale.
