1 VENICE 2008 Second International Symposium on Energy from Biomass and Waste November 2008 Fondazione Cini, Venice, Italy Organized by: IWWG International Waste Working Group Technical University of Dresden (DE) University of Padua (IT) Hamburg University of Technology (DE) With the support of: Regional Government of Veneto Environmental Policy Department, IT Promoted by: BBE, German BioEnergy Association, DE CIWM, Chartered Institution of Wastes Management, UK DEFRA, Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, UK GEOSYNTHETICA, USA REA, Renewable Energy Association, UK Resource Recovery Forum, UK WMAA, Waste Management Association of Australia PRESENTATION The production of energy from alternative sources and its impact on climate change are among the main strategic tools implicated in the sustainable development of our society. Accordingly, numerous types of biomass and wastes contribute towards the production of energy and reduction in the use of fossil fuels by means of biological, chemical and thermal processes. Further to the above, in modern integrated waste management scenarios the waste-to-energy process allows the cycle to be closed. Existing biomass and waste-to-energy technologies are currently undergoing rapid development: processes are being optimised and new ideas for technical application proposed. Despite the growing interest in the use of these technologies, in many countries their implementation remains limited, chiefly due to reasons other than those of a technical and economical nature (i.e. scarce public acceptance, negative past experiences, insufficient knowledge, to mention but a few). The aim of the Venice 2008 Symposium is to focus on the advances made in the application of technologies for energy recovery from biomass and waste and to encourage discussion on relevant aspects such as: 1

2 reliability of processes and technologies, full scale applicability of new processes, technical and economical optimisation, improvement of energy balance, environmental impact and potential health effects, information and education, selection of the appropriate process for the specific situation, adaptation of technologies to different geographical and cultural situations. The Symposium Programme will last four days (three days of scientific sessions and one day for technical tours) and will include oral sessions, a poster session and a small exhibition by companies working in the field. The Symposium is organised by IWWG and the Universities of Dresden, Hamburg and Padua. IWWG (International Waste Working Group, is a registered no-profit organisation aiming to provide an intellectual platform to encourage and support integrated and sustainable waste management and to promote practical scientific development in the field. The group was conceived in 2002 as a think tank, the work of which is based on scientific principles oriented towards practical application. The IWWG is structured in such a way as to allow it to focus on a range of subjects, to react promptly to problems in the field, and to communicate efficiently within the professional community. The official journal of IWWG, Waste Management, published by Elsevier, has the highest impact factor in the field. Among the activities of IWWG is the organisation of Sardinia Symposium (further information on the website in cooperation with the Universities of Hamburg and Padua. THE SYMPOSIUM STRUCTURE The Symposium is structured in four Parallel Sessions (A, B, C and D). General Sessions A, Main Topic Sessions B and C focus on the main Symposium topics while Specialised Sessions D are devoted to the in-depth discussion of topics dealt with in General Sessions. In Sessions A, B and C contributions (20 minutes) are presented following a strict schedule, in order to enable delegates to plan participation adequately. Twenty minutes are devoted to discussion. In Specialised Sessions shorter lectures (10 minutes) are scheduled to facilitate the presentation of a larger number of studies and to allow for more detailed discussion and debate.

13 SESSION a10 - Sala degli Arazzi Round Table Health-related issues and public acceptance of thermal treatment In spite of the growing role played by thermal waste treatment in modern waste management strategies, in particular due to advantages in terms of reduction of waste volume and production of energy, strong opposition is frequently manifested by citizens, political parties and associations, and public concern is in general high. The aim of this round table is to stimulate discussion between a panel of experts from various disciplines on the scientific aspects of healthrelated issues and other controversial aspects. The following experts will take part in the discussion: Thursday November 20 TECHNICAL TOURS Thursday November 20th is devoted entirely to Technical Tours. Guided tours of real-scale plants situated in the North-east of Italy operating in the production of energy from biomass and waste both by means of thermal and biological processes in a context of integrated waste management will be organised. Tours will focus on illustrating to delegates available options and technologies for use in the production of energy from biomass and waste. Tours should be booked in advance and delegates should choose one tour only, in line with their specific interests.
