23rd Conference ASHES FROM POWER GENERATION, Zakopane, Poland
The 23rd Conference Ashes from Power Generation took place on 19 – 21 October, 2016. The program was prepared with regard to the general situation in this sector of economy, and in particular to regulations being prepared in the European Union under the umbrella of the Circular Economy idea, as well as expectations form the sectors of generation of electricity and utilisation of combustion by-products. Special focus was placed on issues connected with climate policy and resulting prerequisites of implementing the principles of Zero Waste Europe, Resource Efficient Europe and the Circular Economy.
As the strategy for the Circular Economy implementation will soon start to be implemented, this issue was present in the significant part of the presentations and discussions as potentially impacting on the area of solid fuel combustion products utilisation. Papers pointed out the way towards implementation of circularity principles from the formal-legal and business-practice angles, both seen at the European Commission’s level and from the Polish perspective.
Contributions from the whole sector allowed for comprehensive discussing of the current problems, state and prospects for the anthropogenic minerals. As usual, the participants came from academic establishments, power sector, CCP market operators, producers of equipment and systems, and laboratories and research institutions.
