Internet of sewers being discussed at Waste Expo Australia 2018

Waste Expo Australia will return to Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre from 3–4 October. Waste Expo Australia is co-located with All-Energy Australia, forming the most comprehensive event for the waste, recycling, clean energy and energy efficiency industries in Australia. These events will showcase over 300 suppliers, attract over 8000 visitors and feature 10 concurrent conferences that are free to attend over the 2 days.

Waste Expo Australia offers a number of unique opportunities for attendees including an exhibition, networking events, live demonstrations and the highly acclaimed Waste Summit conference. Waste Summit is Australia’s largest free-to-attend waste management conference that will focus on four key themes including landfill and transfer stations, waste to energy, resource recovery and collections. These themes will address policy, legislation, circular economy and solid waste management, and will be where the industry tackles the most pressing issues. Hear from industry experts including Minister for the Environment and Energy, The Hon Josh Frydenberg, Victorian Minister for Energy, Environment and Climate Change, The Hon Lily D’Ambrosio and organisations such as NWRIC, ARENA, VWMA, ACOR, AORA, Cleanaway, Sustainability Victoria, Melbourne Water and many more.

Answering the development and growth of Australia’s wastewater sector, Waste Expo Australia will also launch a new conference in 2018, Wastewater Summit. Wastewater Summit is a free-to-attend conference that will confront the challenges and opportunities in wastewater treatment through technology, strategy and compliance. The Wastewater Summit conference will focus on three key themes — technology, strategy and compliance — and will be where the industry converges to source new technology and gain insights from industry-leading experts.

Among the key sessions on the Wastewater Summit program is a case study presentation lead by South East Water. This session titled ‘Internet of Sewers using IoT to improve efficiency and safety of wastewater assets’ will share learnings on how they leveraged machine-to-machine technology to transmit real-time technology to control wastewater flows and identify faults in the network. This session stands among 12 others that will feature practical and innovative technology targeted at reducing operational costs and increasing efficiency.

Waste Summit and Wastewater Summit provide an unparalleled opportunity to all attendees to remain abreast in a dynamic and ever-changing industry. The conference programs, discussing the latest technological advancements and industry growth, will be greatly complemented by the ability to meet and network with the suppliers that have practically implemented these ideas on the show floor.

Waste Expo Australia is free to attend and open to all industry stakeholders looking for products, services and solutions for the waste and wastewater sectors. For more information on Waste Expo Australia and to register visit to www.wasteexpoaustralia.com.au.
