A waste management equipment exhibition is organised in connection with the seminar. The National Waste Recovery Days also provides the possibility to carry out postgraduate studies.

The seminar is organised annually in November.

Energy Efficiency Days – Information on the energy efficiency of pumping and blasting processes

Different types of pumping and blasting processes in industry and communities amount to approximately 25% of all electrical energy consumption.

The seminar is meant for those responsible for purchasing in industry and communities, planners, equipment suppliers and those in charge of pumping and blasting processes. All interested in improving energy efficiency in processes are also welcome.
