The Swedish Trade Council and the Embassy of Sweden, in co-operation with Canadian Urban Institute are inviting delegates to participate in a business mission to Sweden to learn firsthand how municipalities and companies have implemented state-of-the-art technology within the energy and waste to energy sector.
The tour starts in Stockholm with a welcoming reception and classroom briefing to introduce participants to the concepts and methods to be explored during the tour. Participants will then travel through the southern part of Sweden and visit some of the most sophisticated waste to energy facilities in the world. There will also be visits to a bio-gas plant, recycling facility, district energy plant, a steel manufacturer that produces its own energy, and much more. There will be meetings, demonstrations, workshops and presentations arranged throughout the week with experts in the energy sector as well as representatives from the federal and provincial government and local municipalities.
They expect participation from across Canada, and all Canadian companies, organizations and municipalities are welcome to attend.
The deadline to respond is Friday, March 13, 2009:
