30 September - 1 October 2024

The event for energy from waste and biomass plant managers


This important, technical event is designed specifically for operational decision-makers who need to drive performance excellence from their current waste to energy and biomass assets.

The UK's fleet of energy from waste and biomass plants range from the very modern to the significantly ageing - but they are all under pressure to reduce downtime, increase availability, improve throughput and, for many, to increase profits - and all this whilst operating safely, keeping costs down and working within a rapidly changing environment.
Added to this are the accelerating demands of decarbonisation and ever more stringent emissions regulation.

Operational Optimisation provides a unique opportunity to explore critical issues with industry colleagues and technical experts.


What to expect from attending

Bringing together over 100 attendees at the event last year, it provides an unparalleled opportunity to share operational knowledge and provide updates on technology and system advances. 

With its accessible and enjoyable 1 evening plus 1 day structure,
Operational Optimisation facilitates highly valuable networking amongst technical and operational decision-makers enabling information exchange to drive performance excellence.

Who should attend:

Plant Manager

Operations Manager / Head of Operations

Maintenance Manager / Head of Maintenance

Performance Engineer / Engineering Manager / Performance Improvement Engineer

Facilities Manager

Owner / Investor
