The Scientific Programme of the Venice Symposium will include a series of guided technical tours of real scale plants operating in the production of energy from biomass and waste both by means of thermal and biological processes.
The technical tours of this digital edition, will be organized as virtual tours inside the plants, in live streaming or with pre-recorded videos. They will be coordinated by experts in the field of waste to energy and will take place in the presence of the Technical Directors of the different plants, who will be available at the end of the visit to answer the questions of the participants.
The Virtual Technical Tours will allow for live interaction between speakers and participants: using the Q&A tool, delegates will be able to send questions which will be answered live by the coordinators and the Technical Directors. Attendees may also be invited to join the discussion with camera and microphone.
Technical visits to the following plants are already confirmed:
COPENHILL WASTE TO ENERGY PLANT AND SKI SLOPE - Copenhagen (DANIMARCA)
Copenhagen. The Copenhill ski slope on the roof of the waste-to-energy plant officially opened on October 4th.
On Friday October 4th, the dry ski slope of the new waste-to-energy plant designed by the star architect Bjarke Ingels in the heart of the Danish capital finally opened to the public. It is a unique project that adds an important page to the history of technology applied to sustainability, design and sports culture. Amager Bakke has been renamed Copenhill, which refers to this ‘hill’ in Copenhagen, because that is basically what Copenhill is: an ultramodern waste-to-energy plant, as well as a mountain measuring almost 90 metres in height, where it is now possible to ski 365 days a year.Copenhagen’s state-of-the-art Amager Bakke sets new standards for environmental performance, energy efficiency and waste treatment capacity.Copenhagen’s state-of-the-art Amager Bakke sets new standards for environmental performance, energy efficiency and waste treatment capacity.
Just across the bay from the queen’s palace, it includes a roof-top ski slope and a hiking trail, with trees growing on landscaped sections. The plant was constructed by Amager Ressourcecenter, owned by five Copenhagen municipalities. Amager Bakke is equipped with two furnace lines and a joint turbine and generator system.

CADINO ANAEROBIC DIGESTER / BIO ENERGIA TRENTINO
With the Cadino anaerobic digester, Bio Energia Trentino is committed to treating the food waste of the Trentino area in the size of 75% of the annual production. Thanks to a new authorization process in progress, it is organizing itself to receive the remaining part of waste produced by the basin.
Specifically, the company is currently authorized to collect and recover 40,000 tons / year of food waste and 14,500 tons / year of green waste.
The company purpose is to recover these materials by transforming them into by-products, which can be useful and ecologically compatible resources. A new section is currently being built for the transformation of biogas into biomethane for transport use.

BOLZANO WASTE-TO-ENERGY PLANT / ECO CENTER SpA
The Bolzano waste-to-energy incineration plant can treat 130,000 tonnes/year of municipal solid waste. The plant recovers the heat produced by the combustion of waste by converting it into steam and by means of this produces thermal and electrical energy. The plant has a total area size of 25000 m2, a nominal thermal and electric power of 59 MW and 15 MW, respectively, and a maximum heat output recovery of 32 MW. The calorific value of the treat waste, which is about 13 MJ/kg, allows the production of about 95,000 MWh/year of electrical energy and 240,000 MWh/year of thermal energy.
