Event Summary:

IPFA Australia: Sydney: Waste-ing Time in Australia?


Australia has had a difficult relationship with waste treatment projects in the past – our easy access to landfill making it commercially difficult for expensive treatment processes compared to the success of the sector in the UK and Europe. Projects here have had limited government subsidy and long lead times with many not getting to Close and often those that do being plagued by technology issues, feedstock supply problems and complex contractual arrangements. But Australia has now closed its first large scale energy-from-waste project, the 34MW / 400ktpa Kwinana project in Western Australia and several other projects are proposed.
 
This event will explore the challenges for the sector in Australia, international precedents and the medium term outlook through a panel discussion including lawyers, lenders, developers, operators and investors in the sector.
