Making efficiencies to your waste and resource management can save you money and this year’s Recycling & Waste Management Exhibition (RWM), taking place at the Birmingham NEC from 15 to 17 September 2009, will show you how. Free to all visitors, RWM features over 500 exhibiting companies, 36 free seminar sessions, and a new networking zone.
Over 500 exhibitors
RWM’s indoor and outdoor exhibition areas enable visitors to see the latest vehicles, waste handling and processing equipment up close. Major names include Case Construction, Mercedez-Benz, Isuzu, WCR, Liebherr, Duo Manufacturing, Presona, Manvik Hire, Terex, Hammel, Broxap and Continental Plant Services. Suppliers of bins, recyclers of a wide range of materials, environmental consultants and waste management companies will also be well represented.
A line-up of expert speakers have already been confirmed for the comprehensive free seminar programme which will run simultaneously over the three-day show in three dedicated seminar theatres.

Learn about construction waste solutions on 16 September when Stephen Wielebski, divisional development director for Miller Homes will give a developer’s perspective on construction waste and Paul Elliot, supply chain manager for Wates will present a case study on achieving the holy grail of zero waste. WRAP’s programme manager for materials recycling, Mike Falconer Hall, will examine the roles each part of the construction supply chain can play in meeting government targets to halve construction waste to landfill by 2012.

Day Two’s sessions (16 September) are of particular interest, offering valuable insight into policies for managing Waste Electrical Electronic Equipment, hazardous and radioactive waste.
New for 2009 – Energy & Water Seminars
RWM’s Energy and Water Seminar Theatre has been introduced for the increasing number of visitors who have responsibility for energy and water resources in addition to their waste and recycling role. The opening day’s programme (15 September) features a keynote address from waste guru Peter Jones OBE on using waste as a fossil carbon substitute and Stuart Clayton, water team technical manager at Envirowise will talk about water conservation and re-use. The second day (16 September) is devoted entirely to the topic of waste-to-energy and the final day (17 September) looks at climate change, featuring a presentation from Simon Houghton-Dodd, head of quality and sustainability for Tate and Lyle Sugars Europe.
