About Task 36

neath_prot_talbot_courtesy_This Task is aimed at exchange of information on the material and energy valorisationof waste in a circular economy, with emphasis on dissemination of information aimed at policy and decision makers.

Its program of activities builds upon the work done in the Task over the past decade on the integration of energy into solid waste management solutions and decisions, and from 2019 the  key challenges in the material and energy valorisation of waste inn a society that moves towards a circular economy.

The Task works closely with both operating industry and with research organisations. Each meeting will include a workshop on a relevant issue and a site tour.  The Task will work in close collaboration with Task 40 (Deployment of biobased value chains) and 32 (Biomass combustion and co-firing) on issues relevant to these Tasks, such as carbon capture and sequestration or utilisation (BECCS/U).
