Webinar | Best practice in Australian LFG management
The National Landfill Division of the Waste Management and Resource Recovery Association of Australia (WMRR) invites you to join them online on Tuesday, 22 September 2020 for the first of two live webinars to discuss landfill gas management.

In this webinar two experts in the field will present an overview  and examples of current best practice LFG recovery at Australian landfills, covering both larger sites with commercial scale energy recovery and smaller sites using flares and operational practices to minimise emissions.

The webinar will be facilitated by WMRR CEO, Gayle Sloan and Paul Lightbody of Mockinya Consulting.
