Prof. Martin Faulstich moderated and lectured during the Cluster-Forum Waste to Energy at IFAT Entsorga

Prof. Dr.-Ing. Martin Faulstich during the IFAT Enstorga 2010Prof. Dr.-Ing. Martin Faulstich (head of WtERT Germany GmbH, Chair of Resource- and Energy Technology of the Technical University Munich, and Chairman of the German Advisory Council on the Environment (SRU), Berlin) held a lecture about "Energy from Waste - Facts and perspectives" and also moderated the session "Ways to use energy from waste" during the Cluster-Forum Waste to Energy at the Forum Hall B1 during IFAT Enstorga 2010.

During his speech, Prof. Faulstich emphasized on the need to find alternative and renewable sources of energy as the lifespan of reserves and resources of conventional and limites energy resources such as petroleum, natural gas and uranium, are forecasted to last only a few years more.

After his speech, three other lectures about WtE followed by experts:
  • WtE plants – Power suppliers for the industry
    Dr.-Ing. Thomas König, CEO, GfA Olching Müllverbrennungsanlage, Olching
  • Eco efficiency of bio waste management in Bavaria
    Prof. Dr.-Ing. Wolfgang Rommel, Managing Director, bifa Umweltinstitut GmbH, Augsburg
  • Heat maps as planing instruments
    Dr.-Ing. Martin-Theodor Steger, CEO, COPLAN AG, Eggenfelden
Finally a panel discussion took place where the public had the opportunity to ask the experts about WtE.

Afterwards a second session "Practical examples and projects" took place. This was moderated by WtERT Germany expert, Dr. Mario Mocker (ATZ Entwicklungszentrum) and included the following lectures:
  • Energy from waste – Practical experience report
    Rita Högl, C.E.O, HÖGL T.E.O. GmbH, Volkenschwand
  • UPM: The biofore company – Energy from biomass
    Ulrich Weidner, Manager Biomass UPM Forest CE, Senior Key Account Manager, UPM GmbH, Augsburg
  • Energy contracting with biomass
    Karl Heinz Schönenborn, General Manager, Stadtwerke Fürstenfeldbruck GmbH, Fürstenfeldbruck
  • Heat recovery from waste water
    Christian Gelhaus, Product Manager, HUBER SE, Berching
After the ending of the session, Prof. Martin Faulsitch received from the UmweltCluster Bayern the Lighthouse Project Award for his participation in the "Waste water heat utilisation in Straubing".
