What is 'waste'? Waste is the result of production and consumption of material goods. Only a short while ago, waste was simply thrown away or burned. In most economic theories, the absorption capacity of 'the environment' is deemed to be infinite. With 6.5 billion people on the planet earth, we are confronted by the fact that this assumption is blatantly incorrect. As a result, we have no other choice than to rethink 'waste' and treat it as a new type of resource. However, can everything be re-used? Is it possible to just treat waste as a resource? What do we need to do, to do so effectively? If it were simple, wouldn't we have done so long before? During this event, some examples of effective and promising approaches to waste-management are presented.

Concept by John Grüter, Owner, Digital Knowledge


Diana den Held, strategic advisor for Michael Braungart (Cradle to Cradle)
Cradle to Cradle, what to do with it?

Cradle to Cradle (C2C) is a model, developed by Michael Braungart and William McDonough. At a high pace it’s being implemented on a world wide scale. In this model a company is being organised in such a way that the outcome is beneficial for as well the Company, the Environment as Society. The Netherlands take an important place in the implementation of C2C: our country functions as a blue print for the rest of the World. In this lecture, strategist Diana den Held tells about Cradle to Cradle and she will point out a few differences between ‘traditional’ sustainability thinking and the Cradle to Cradle approach. She hopes to inspire you to take (further) steps on the Cradle to Cradle road.

Peter van Zwol, Owner, Solarix - Biodiesel Professionals
Second Generation Biofuels

Peter van Zwol talks about the second generation of Biodiesel, about different and innovative large-scale waste processes (cooking oils, animal fatty substances and biomass/organic waste). The resulting second generation Biodiesel is produced without reallocating food stocks for energy production. What are sustainable technologies for the production of biodiesel, bio-ethanol and bio gas from organic waste?

Bram Kranenburg, Technical Manager, Icopal Benelux
Bitumen End of Life Solutions (BiELSo), recycling of old bituminous roofs and making new roofing materials out of it.

BiELSo is the abbreviation of Bitumen End of Life Solutions. Traditionally, bitumen is made of a non-renewable resource, oil. BiELSo is a process that allows virtually endless recycling and re-use of the bitumen ('raw') materials by harvesting 'old' roofing materials. Additionally, substantial reduction of CO2 is gained. The advantage is that less waste is produced and 'new' oil can be used for other purposes.

John Kuipers, Founder, Sweep - Second Life for Oil
Plastic to Oil

In today’s hectic world we pass through life hastily, and as we do, we use an enormous amount of energy. In that process we create enormous piles of garbage, varying from small candy wrappers to complete dumps with 1000's of tonnes of waste plastic.
John talks about new technologies that convert waste plastic into semi refined oil.

Exhibition

Waste from Production - Production from Waste

by Stefan Lehner, En-Fer Atelier


The growing waste mountains threaten our environment but all waste has also an enormous potential. Waste must at least be recycled. To lose less energy and materials we can even up cycle it. Design with waste can be done at different level. More we use obvious and hidden waste potential, less we need new raw materials and energy. Stefan Lehner is doing since 22 years studies, prototypes, limited editions and serial production of interior objects based on waste and its potential.

Sustainable Energy Europe
The future landscape of European energy supply and demand will have to make much greater use of new renewable energy sources and focus more upon energy-efficient methods. Today, we can be proud of the fact that Europe is already a leading advocate in the fight to halt the depletion of natural resources and prevent climate change. Our task is now to persuade both consumers and key decision-makers of the benefits of sustainable energy production and use.

The Sustainable Energy Europe Campaign is a European Commission initiative in the framework of the Intelligent Energy - Europe programme, which aims to raise public awareness and promote sustainable energy production and use among individuals and organisations, private companies and public authorities, professional and energy agencies, industry associations and NGOs across Europe.

Qualit Datamatics
QD is a private owned organisation dedicated to technology transfer, in various countries where inbalances in development between urban and rural areas exist. Such imbalances hamper the national development due to the wastage of human and natural resources.

By the acceptance and use of innovative technologies, this situation may be redressed. This assumption is based on the observation that human behavior changes, when new technologies are accepted and absorbed. In other words: once accepted, innovative technologies can cause social innovation.

It is QD's goal to select technologies which are innovative, attractive, maintenance free, modularized (with local construction components), solving immediate problems, and that can be operated in a decentralized way (= effective management).

The technology sectors QD has choosen are water, biogas, wind energy systems, dairy, light, automotive and innovative decision support systems on urban planning for rural and urban areas.

Digital technology is rapidly transforming our society, our business practices and lives. Technology is a driver, but not the real issue. Adoption by individuals, companies and governments is far more important. But how can we manage the technology, the adoption process and the effect on our businesses and private lives, without getting lost in that change?
