This September, RWM 2013 in partnership with CIWM (supported by the Environmental Services Association) will provide the perfect platform for visitors wanting to gain insight into the industry’s most pressing issues. In addition to hosting the sector’s largest free CPD-accredited conference program – with more than 160 waste experts poised to share their knowledge – RWM 2013 will also showcase the latest solutions from more than 750 exhibiting businesses and organisations. Here, Materials Handling World brings you a snapshot of what’s in store at Europe’s leading resource efficiency and waste management exhibition.
Industry leading speakers
RWM 2013 in partnership with CIWM is delighted to welcome the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, Edward Davey, to the stage this year. Speaking in the Energy from Waste Theatre, sponsored by Advanced Plasma Power, Switzerland Trade and Investment Promotion and Osborne Clarke, Davey will assess the ever changing landscape of the UK’s energy needs as well analysing the role energy from waste will play in supporting security of supply.
From a private sector perspective in the Commerce and Industry Theatre, Dr. Anne Roulin will explore Nestlé’s journey to zero waste, focusing on the challenges and opportunities for reducing food waste across the value chain.
Many other inspirational speakers will be appearing across the conference including Lord Robert Winston, whose inspirational talk will consider why humans are motivated to continually improve the world around us. Another fascinating talk will be delivered by eco-adventurer Andy Pag, who drove around the world in an old school bus powered by used cooking oil. Ethical living newspaper journalist, Lucy Siegle, will explore how to get householders to recycle and Professor Dieter Helm, Independent Chair at Defra Natural Capital Committee, will consider where current legislation is leading us and how we can do the best for the environment and the economy.
Communications at the forefront
Good stories will take centre stage at the Communications Hub, delivered by Copper Consultancy in partnership with SLR Consulting and APSRG, which offers a detailed look at ‘positive communications’ with three days of engaging and thought-provoking sessions. Using positive news stories and innovative practices within the industry as a springboard for discussion, each day will be organised around a specific theme, including leadership, investment and communities.
These two theatres are supported by three others: the Leaders Arena, sponsored by Dentons and the Local Authority Theatre, sponsored by Kier, AmeyCespa and SKM Enviros and supported by LARAC.

One of Europe’s fastest growing RCV and Tanker producers, Farid Heil, will also be exhibiting, as well as Mercedes and Izusu, the truck manufacturers, JCB, construction machinery, and Norbert Dentressangle, the freight and logistics specialist.
With many professionals embracing a wider sustainability remit, RWM in partnership with CIWM 2013 is co-located with three complementary exhibitions – The Energy Event, The Renewables Event and The (new) Water Event. These free to attend events offer answers to the range of business sustainability challenges affecting water and energy management and efficiency.
