Waste Expo Australia 2023.

Waste Expo Australia 2023 is returning to Melbourne at an opportune time for business leaders to discuss trends, challenges and solutions for waste management, the circular economy and sustainable resource consumption. 

Centred around the core theme ‘Advancing Towards Sustainable Resource Recovery’, Waste Expo Australia features a multi-stream conference and exhibition that will showcase the best and brightest of the waste industry in Australia. Attendees interested in resource recovery, sustainability, the environment and circularity will have plenty to discover at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre from 25-26 October.

The annual conference attracts over 2700 attendees and 60 conference speakers hosting 100 sessions over four streams.

 Session topics

  • ‘Reuse is the way to go! Say goodbye to single-use’ presented by Sandra Mack from Sustainability Victoria
  • ‘An opportunity not to waste: the case for collaboration across the value chain’ presented by Richard Pittard from Cleanaway
  • ‘The central role of waste to energy in a circular economy’ presented by Benoit Englebert, Keppel Seghers, and
  • ‘Close the Loop – turning problem plastic waste into high value products within the same community the waste was generated’ presented by Steve Morriss, Close the Loop.

In the ‘Waste to Energy’ stream, consultant and innovator Scott McArdle will contribute to several sessions, addressing new technologies on the waste-to-energy scene. McArdle’s company Zeroge is investing in waste-to-hydrogen (WXH) technology, which he says has a key role to play in decarbonising both the waste and regional economies. 

“The waste-to-energy sector is an under-utilised area of impact when it comes to addressing waste management challenges and supporting sustainable solutions,” he says.

“There are several key issues facing the industry in Australia, including policy and regulatory challenges, waste composition and investment.” 

Outside the conference, more than 100 international and domestic suppliers will exhibit – including Bucher Municipal, EEA Group, Repurpose It, Komatsu, Eldan Recycling and TOMRA Collections – making Waste Expo Australia the ultimate sourcing platform for waste and resource recovery sectors. This will also foster an environment that encourages innovation, robust discussions and idea generation among industry leaders.

Accelerating industry transformation

Warrick Grime from Bucher Municipal says the opportunity to connect with the industry over two action-packed days is a time-efficient one. 

“The waste management industry is in a period of transformation, with ideas like circularity and sustainability coming to the forefront of the national conversation. Being on the ground to connect with fellow industry at Waste Expo Australia allows us to form valuable relationships and share ideas to move the industry forward,” he says.

Waste Expo Australia is strongly supported by industry associations, with the Victorian Waste Management Association (VWMA), Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP) and Australian Organics Recycling Association (AORA) all playing key roles in the event’s programming.

Both the conference and exhibition are free to attend, with registrations open now.
