- research programme
On 27 May 2021, CEWEP and ESWET organise an open conversation to explore the potential of Waste-to-Energy in hydrogen generation within the EU Green Week.
Hydrogen is expected to become one of the drivers of the EU’s Green Recovery in the next years. Fuel cells offer a range of potential applications including in hard-to-decarbonise sectors such as road transport.
Waste-to-Energy plants, that recover energy from non-recyclable waste are at the frontline of these innovative developments working on projects aiming to produce hydrogen that is used in heavy urban transport, like city buses and waste collection vehicles. The event will discuss the surprising synergies brought about by these waste-to-wheels solutions and possibilities for future sector coupling.
Opening remarks by Dr Ella Stengler, Managing Director of CEWEP Confederation of European Waste to Energy Plants
Introduction from Jens Geier, Member of the European Parliament, Rapporteur of the European Parliament’s Report on the European Strategy for Hydrogen
