Biomass & WtE (Waste to Energy)

The global market for thermal and biological waste-to-energy (WTE) technologies was worth $19.9 billion in 2008. According to projections, the sector will be worth $26.2 billion in the next five years. And the industry has now set its sights on China for new project developments and investments.

China represents a brand new frontier for the waste-to-energy sector. Beijing has earmarked 350 billion Yuan (S$75 billion) this year for clean water and waste management on top of a 1 Trillion Yuan allocated under its 11th 5-year plan, which runs to 2010. China is also the world's largest producer of municipal solid waste. In 2004, China surpassed the United States as the world's largest producer of municipal solid waste at about 190 million tonnes a year. By 2030, the World Bank estimates that will have more than doubled to at least 480 million tones.

CMT's Biomass & Waste-to-Energy conference, to be held on 28-29 October in Shanghai explores these exciting new developments in the waste-to-energy industry , with focus on emerging technologies, upcoming projects around the world, feedstock issues, financing and logistics challenges across the Biomass & Waste-to-Energy value chain with a particular focus on the upcoming industry in China.

Key highlights of the program will include power generation from agricultural biomass, energy recovery from municipal solid waste or WtE (Waste to Energy), securing feedstock with biomass and dedicated energy crops, biomass processing, cellulosic ethanol and biotechnologies converting biomass to fuels and chemicals.

Beyond these, the program will feature intensive panel discussions, spot-on analysis of key industry trends and informative project sharing sessions by the world's top Biomass players. As part of the Biomass & WtE program, the conference plans to offer two concurrent tracks, to cover Waste to Energy & Cellulosic Ethanol Biotechnologies.

Biomass & WtE is part of the BiomassWorld series of conferences, which has seen participation from over 300 key executives from leading bio-energy companies' biomass project operators and developers, bio-refinery executives, bio-power executives, biodiesel executives, feedstock developers, policy makers, waste management experts and top players from over 40 countries.
