FROM RECUWATT TO RECUWASTE
Recuwatt returns in 2018 under the new name of RECUWASTE, in line with the worldwide evolution taking place in resource management within the new circular economy model and demands for local authorities to constantly improve the management of public services
RECUWATT was born in 2011 following a number of years of reflection on the important need for objective, rigorous, unreserved discussion of all forms of energy recovery in Spain. This took place within a scenario where it could be seen that European legislation would restrict the indiscriminate use of the landfill as a final treatment for waste.
The original RECUWATT format has evolved throughout four editions that have consolidated the position of the Consorcio de Residuos del Maresme (Maresme Waste Consortium) as a benchmark for public entities involved in raising awareness and promoting correct waste management amongst third parties, local authorities and private enterprise.
FROM RECUWATT TO RECUWASTE
Recuwatt returns in 2018 under the new name of RECUWASTE, in line with the worldwide evolution taking place in resource management within the new circular economy model and demands for local authorities to constantly improve the management of public services.
Thus, RECUWASTE opens its doors to the economy of resources and also, in a very central way, to the local world and innovation, with an eminently international approach that enables attendees to gain first-hand knowledge of the most significant worldwide experiences, share know-how and engage in learning. The event once again confirms Mataró as a true benchmark in the world of municipal waste management.
RECUWASTE 2018 – AN EMISSIONS-NEUTRAL EVENT
Recuwaste 2018 is an event committed to combating climate change and will showcase this by calculating and neutralising greenhouse gas emissions during the congress.
Recuwaste, with the support of Lavola i Clean CO2, has calculated the emissions generated during the organisation of the event associated with energy consumption, materials distributed, communications materials, the catering service offered by the organisers, and the travel and overnight stays of speakers and attendees. Recuwaste is collaborating with Clean CO2 in the Andra Pradesh wind energy project in India. This initiative, certified by the Verified Carbon Standard, reduces CO2 emissions, improves air quality, boosts the local economy and protects the environment in the area.
Recuwaste has obtained the Clean CO2 Certificate and Seal, which accredits the emissions neutrality of the event and its commitment to reducing environmental impact.
