High-level analysis of the integration of Waste to Energy with CCS/CCU

14.00-15.00 GMT

This webinar will look at the recent IEAGHG study on CCS on Waste to Energy (WtE). CCS and CCU technologies in WtE plants might have a significant impact on the whole waste industry and global climate commitments. The objective of the study was to understand some of the issues pertaining to this CCS/CCU opportunity and analyse these at national level. The presenters will discuss:

  • Lifecycle assessment of CO2 savings in WtE plant
  • Overview of projects aimed at integrating carbon capture with WtE
  • Challenges and opportunities in CCS/CCU integration with WtE
  • Evaluation of potential for applying carbon capture to WtE in different geographical contexts
