In a climate where food and drink manufacturers are increasingly under pressure to reduce their own food waste, cut packaging levels and introduce more environmentally friendly packaging options, RWM in partnership with CIWM is the perfect opportunity to see the latest developments in waste management and recycling. In addition visitors can see how a sustainable approach to business can save long-term costs and boost revenue.

For the first time, the sustainability and recycling industry’s two biggest exhibitions, the Recycling and Waste Management Exhibition (RWM) and The Chartered Institution of Wastes Management’s (CIWM) Futuresource, have combined to create a single flagship event taking place at Birmingham’s NEC from Tuesday 13 to Thursday 15 September.

With more than 600 exhibitors already signed up, the exhibition will feature the very latest products and services in waste and recycling, including the latest in packaging and food waste services. For example, visitors can find out about innovations in recycled packaging options from suppliers including Biffa Polymers who will be available to demonstrate the variety of food and drink packaging applications that are produced from recycled mixed plastics.

You will also see one of Europe’s premier food chain recycling specialists PDM Group, IMC’s award winning food waste recycling solution and Smurfit Kappa Recycling (UK), the first multi-site packaging company to receive the carbon trust standard, to name but a few.

72 Free Seminars, Over 90 Expert Speakers

This year, RWM in partnership with CIWM’s seminar programme will feature the waste and recycling industry’s largest programme of free content, covering Technology & Innovation, Commerce & Industry, Local Authority, Communications issues and Energy. It gives you the chance to make sure you are armed with the latest knowledge from leading industry figures.

Highlights include Coca Cola’s commercial recycling manager Nick Brown who will be talking about what the soft drinks company is doing to reduce the impact of packaging. In addition, PDM Group’s commercial director Suzanne McDermott will be discussing how the food and drink industry can help overcome barriers to making food waste recycling a mainstream habit through working in partnership with the waste industry.

The programme has been fully accredited by CIWM, with each day of the conference providing half a day towards members’ Graduate Structured Learning & Development Programme or four hours of Continuing Professional Development (CPD).

The full three-day seminar programme will feature over 90 industry-leading experts including former politician and corporate advisor Lord Digby Jones, journalist and environmentalist Lucy Siegle and expert environmental advisor Jonathon Porritt CBE. In addition, a host of industry professionals will be presenting the latest industry insights, as well as best practice case studies covering a variety of topics including waste prevention and reuse. Seminars will highlight the latest new technology and policy developments to inspire improvement in food and drink recycling and waste.

Free Professional Services Advice

Visitors can take the unique opportunity to talk through solutions for their businesses at the Professional Services Clinic, which is new to the show for 2011. A selection of experts will be available for free one-on-one consultancy sessions with visitors across the three days of the exhibition. Clinics will include getting the most out of energy from waste provided by the experts at KEMA and legal services sessions provided by corporate law firm Nabarro.
