Parnaby Cyclones: Sponsors of the Energy from Waste Theatre

Energy from Waste Theatre: Sponsored By Parnaby Cyclones

The Energy from Waste theatre explores the key strategies organisations adopt to generate energy from waste cost-effectively. Topics include the future of advance thermal treatment, the carbon intensity of future energy from waste and residue management.

About Sponsors

Parnaby Cyclones is a family-owned business that has designed, manufactured, and installed washing plant and equipment for the mining, quarrying, recycling and mineral industries all over the world since 1973.

The extensive process and design knowledge has now been applied to many waste and recycling materials, which has enabled Parnaby Cyclones to use their separation technology to help improve and increase efficiencies for their customers over existing dry processing methods.

      Is your business geared for growth?

      In a rapidly advancing world, driven by talent and backed by technology, companies are at risk of falling behind and market leaders are at risk of being superseded. Unless…steps are taken to enable continued and sustainable business growth, through focusing on people, processes, supply chain and technology.

      Turtles vs child health – why does plastic waste matter?

      The “Blue Planet effect” has been transformational on the public understanding of how plastic waste, particularly in poorer countries, impacts on the marine environment. But in this seminar we ask does this focus on marine litter help or hinder the move towards a more sustainable way of managing waste globally?

      Managing The Burden of Business Rates

      The talk will set out the basis of the tax and the tax liabilities currently levied against the sector. It will go onto discuss the options available to the ratepayer to manage and mitigate the tax burden. The audience will learn of Government plans to overhaul the rating system and the likely impact on their bills.

      Waste heat is not for the birds. Lessons learnt from Europe.

      Please join us for an exciting workshop to learn how to capitalise wasted heat from Energy-from-waste plants. You will have a chance to hear about our projects which helped unlock opportunities and revenue streams in continental Europe, ask questions and network with our experts. The session is chaired by Eoghan Maguire, Head of Business Development at Vattenfall Heat UK, and features experts from Germany and Sweden.

      Biological WtE concepts: in-vessel dry AD and RDF biodrying

      Waste-to-energy is becoming increasingly important as both an energy supply and waste treatment concept. Besides mechanical (sorting) and physical-chemical technologies (incineration), biology can play a key role within these concepts. Anaerobic in-vessel digestion of solid organic wastes produces biogas for grid injection, while producing quality compost for agriculture instead of liquid digestate. Aerobic in-vessel biodrying of MSW reduces moisture content, allowing better sorting of recyclables while increasing RDF caloric value.

      Improving the profitability of your plant

      Waste to Energy and Biomass plants are complex operations. Plant performance can vary due to inconsistencies in fuel, plant operations and maintenance regimes all of which impact the profitability for the plant owner. Yokogawa will discuss how combining both process knowledge with advanced control techniques can dramatically improve the performance of your plant resulting in increased profitability. The Yokogawa seminar will examine how this can be achieved whilst illustrating several case studies.

      Monitoring EfW emissions - real-world case studies

      emissions monitoring requirements of different organisations in the Energy from Waste sector, explaining how the latest monitoring solutions have been developed to meet the needs of different stakeholders. Our first case study, CEMS based on a Duty/Standby configuration has been installed at an 80,000 tonnes per annum Municipal thermal treatment plant. Our second case study, CEMS have been installed on Small Waste Incineration Processes
