The FEAD Conference is a biennial event of the European Federation of Waste Management and Environmental Services. It will be held in London on 23 June 2015. The overarching theme of the forthcoming FEAD Conference, the "Dynamic Potential of a Circular Economy", will bring together some great speakers from across Europe, and from every part of the circular economy.
The partnership between SEE ‘Save the Planet’ and FEAD dates back to 2011 and has significantly assisted the SEE event’s promotion among the European national waste management associations, covering 18 EU Member States, Serbia and Norway. FEAD also represents the private sector waste and resource management industry (about 3000 companies).
100% of the buildings for mechanical separation, production and storage of RDF from Sofia's waste are finished.

"This is an exemplary project for the citizens of Sofia and the European Cohesion Policy, as well as a significant project for the most advanced technology for waste treatment in Europe." said, Walter Deffaa, director-general of the Directorate-General for Regional Policy at the European Commission during his visit in Sofia.
According to Yordanka Fandakova, the Mayor of Sofia, almost 100% of the buildings for mechanical separation, production and storage of RDF are finishedThe plant for mechanical-biological treatment (MBT) of waste, together with the "Sadinata" site for RDF-fuel production, is the second phase of the project. Equipment is supplied simultaneously to all sеctions and the construction of an underground infrastructure is also realized.
A staged test is carried out on the machinery and equipment, then there is pending synchronization of individual processes and probing of waste. The capacity of the plant is 410,000 tons of waste annually.
The third phase of the project will receive funding from the Operational Programme "Environment 2014-2020" as a priority project. It will include a cogeneration installation in Sofia with RDF recovery made by Toplofikatsiya Sofia.
Switzerland-based ABB won a contract to supply comprehensive electrical and control solutions for two waste-to-energy plants in England and Poland.
Hitachi Zosen Inova, a Swiss-based waste-to-energy
engineering, procurement and construction contractor, as well as an exhibitor at Save the Planet 2015, awarded the contract. The ABB integrated control system that will be used in the plants is based on its Symphony Plus platform, which is designed to allow for rapid adjustment of combustion conditions for safe and efficient operations.
EU Commissioner: Romania can reach its target on waste recycling
Romania can reach the 50% municipal waste recycling target by 2020, said Karmenu Vella, the European Commissioner for Environment, Maritime Affairs and Fisheries. One of the most important solutions is the citizens’ involvement in the “door to door” collection process. Romania has reached the threshold of 3%, but it has committed to the EU to reach a 50% target by 2020.
