|Benefit with Alternative Energy & Waste Management - Seminar|
The Chamber of Engineers recently organised a seminar on the benefits of alternative energy and waste management. Held at the Grand Hotel Excelsior in Floriana, the seminar also gave participants the practical implications by presenting various case studies.
The first presentation was given by Mr. Francis Micallef, an industrial chemist. Mr. Micallef covered the concept of waste management, as well as the latest trends, legal responsibilities and the current situation in Malta.
He was followed by Ing. Matthew Spiteri, Director at Altern, who discussed sustainability in industry, Malta’s objectives, and green technologies for industry, details on the legal notice on the feed in tariffs for photovoltaic energy amongst other ways on how to reduce energy consumption.
These presentations were followed by two case studies, presented by Ing. Neville Azzopardi, Altern, and Ing. Paul Demanuele, Chief Operations Officer at WasteServ Malta Ltd. Ing. Azzopardi discussed Photovoltaic Technology as a solution for industry, whilst Ing. Demanuele covered the topic of waste as a source of renewable energy.
The last hour of the seminar was dedicated for the participants to continue their discussions and also the opportunity to ask questions. The seminar was chaired by Ing. Mario Schembri, owner and founder of AIS Group of Companies.
