ESWET's 3rd Annual Workshop: Energy-from-Waste, the Big Picture - Brussels


The ESWET Workshop took place on the 11th of October in the Representation of North Rhine Westphalia in Brussels.

Speakers and the audience were invited to debate the following questions:

Has legislation on Energy-from-Waste helped the environment?

Should the EU landfill or recover its residual waste?

Is Energy-from-Waste clean and complementary to recycling?


It was an open debate of opponents and proponent of Energy-from-Waste. We hope that the participants could get a better view of what is the best outcome for their residual waste.

Many thanks to all those who attended!
