Sept. 13. 2019: Australian Trade Association Calls for Waste-to-Energy

The Australian Industrial Ecology Network (AIEN) is urging state governments and other stakeholders to advance WTE facilities to further develop a circular economy. In a recent report, the association argues that WTE permitting should be streamlined and unified to create a consistent policy framework. WTE is seen as a key driver of maximizing products’ value. Australian governments and stakeholders should consider adequate funding, a melding of host and site priorities, feedstock quality, technology advancements, and off-take agreements.
