Energy from Waste 2020 will feature a presentation on the waste-to-energy plant at Klemetsrud from Fortum Oslo Varme’s director of CO2 capture and storage
LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, June 29, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The 2020 edition of the Energy from Waste conference will convene in London on 1st – 2nd December to explore how the foundations of the industry are changing. As concerns about climate change and the environment continue to grow, it's becoming more important to address how the Energy from Waste industry can help in the need to curb emissions.

Last month, the board of Fortum Oslo Varme endorsed a proposal to realise the carbon capture plant at Klemetsrud. This is a huge milestone, as the plant will have the capability to capture as much as 90% of greenhouse gas emissions released from the incineration of waste. Plus, the heat surplus from the capture process can be used to heat the city's buildings.
Fortum Oslo Varme's carbon capture project could be one of the first full-scale plants in Europe, paving the way for other nations, and helping to get Europe on track to reach its goal of achieving net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.
With this in mind, SMi Group are delighted to announce that Jannicke Gerner Bjerkås, Director of CO2 Capture and Storage, Fortum Oslo Varme, will be speaking at this year's Energy from Waste conference to explore the challenges and opportunities in CO2 capture, and present a case study on the waste-to-energy plant at Klemetsrud.
Jannicke’s presentation will cover:
"Opportunities for CO2 Capture in the Waste-to-Energy Sector case study – Fortum Oslo Varme’s waste-to-energy plant at Klemetsrud"
• Potential of CCS applied to the Waste-to-Energy sector
• From landfilling to energy recovery/WtE – with carbon capture
• Great global potential for transfer of technology and competence – The Oxy-Fuel Combustion Capture Technology
• CCUS projects in Waste-to-Energy
• Challenges and lessons learnt
