Presenter: Ewen Skinner, Morrison Low

Presentation title: What is the next step in the battle against waste in New Zealand? AWT, overseas trends and advances.

What is the next step in the battle against waste in NZ?     Will it be business as usual into the future – do we accept that we will only have landfills for residual waste with MRF’s and RRP’s with in some places the treatment of organics to reduce the tonnages that go into these landfills.    Or do we need to start thinking now about what our future options are?  Is Alternate Waste Treatment (AWT) really an option for New Zealand, and if not now then when, if at all. A practical, warts and all view, will be given of what there is around and how successful / relevant it is to New Zealand.  Case studies of our nearest neighbour experiences will be provided noting that the experience of AWT in Australia is often not consistent with other international experience.
