Buckinghamshire City Council to Provide Critical Insight into Greatmoor’s Energy from Waste Plant

Energy from Waste 2016 takes place on 8th and 9th December in Central London

Early this year, Buckingshire's £275m energy from waste plant started generating power using what its supporters refer to as some of the ‘most advanced energy conversion technology in the world'. The plant will treat up to 300,000 tonnes of residual waste to generate 22MW of electricity- equivalent to the energy required to power up to 36,000 homes.*

Against this backdrop, SMi Group are delighted to have Roger Seed, Contracts Team Leader from Buckinghamshire City Council, present a keynote address at the 9th annual Energy from Waste conference when it returns to Central London on 8th and 9th December 2016.

Roger led the delivery of the Energy from Waste (EFW) Programme for Buckinghamshire County Council for a number of years through to the contract live date. His current role involves managing a range of waste related service contracts.

With a focus on the new Energy from Waste plant in Greatmoor, the case study driven presentation will discuss challenges during project delivery as well as project funding. Progressive insight will also be given on future opportunities and developments.

Other notable speakers on the agenda will include:

• Edward Thomas, Head of Performance Improvement, Viridor Waste Management
• Jarno Stet, Waste Services Manager, City of Westminster
• Phil Thomas, WWS Technical Manager, Thames Water
• Nicholas Pollard, CEO, Cory Environmental
• Stuart Hayward-Higham, Technical Development Director, SUEZ R&R UK
