The Energy Transformation Forum was held on June 19, 2019 at the headquarters of the Ministry of Enterprise and Technology and was the first conference of a series of events carried out over three years, starting from 2019.
Guided by the understanding of the factors shaping the transformation processes, conference participants systematically addressed existing technological challenges. The implementation of the Forum results from the need to pragmatically define investment challenges in the area of generation, transmission and energy storage infrastructure, in the context of technological progress. The initiative responds to the need to monitor and analyze the currently ongoing key transformation processes in the energy sector, being a consequence of EU directives, national strategic documents and the European Union’s climate policy.
The debate was devoted to discussions on the issue of technological accessibility as a factor determining the time and financial framework of transformation. Its participants discussed the possibilities of reaching a compromise in the area of modernization of energy infrastructure, while increasing the competitiveness of the Polish industry. Dariusz Kamiński, President of Metal Expert, spoke about the huge energy potential contained in waste, including alternative fuel RDF, biomass, plastic and the future of energy based on small, local waste-to-energy installations. The conference was opened by the Minister of Entrepreneurship and Technology Jadwiga Emilewicz.
The conference was under the honorary patronage of the Ministry of Energy, the Ministry of Enterprise and Technology, the Ministry of Investment and Development and the Ministry of the Environment.

Metal Expert and The Elbląg Technology Park prepared an educational exhibition “Giving Waste Another Life” explaining processing of solid waste into electricity and heat. The main unit of the exhibition is a laboratory pyrolysis reactor, which in the years 2014-2015 served for a pilot study of the pyrolysis process on various types of waste, e.g. alternative fuels RDF, sewage sludge, tires, plastics, biomass. Laboratory test results gave the Metal Expert team knowledge and experience to develop its commercial-scale, highly effective and innovative pyrolysis technology EL PIRO based on autothermal gas-powered reactor. Exhibitors can also see samples of studied materials and read descriptions of key topics and concepts related to pyrolysis and waste-to-energy process.
Metal Expert and The Elbląg Technology Park would like to invite you to visit the exhibition which is located on the ground floor of EPT.
A Conference on the topic of waste-to-energy technologies took place on the 12th September 2016 in The Elblag Technology Park (Elbląg City). Our guests were among others Members of Parliament of the Republic of Poland, Municipalities Mayors and representatives of companies and corporations from the power industry.
Presentations introduced our participants to the issues related to waste management and ways of their processing and disposal. President of Metal Expert, Dariusz Kaminski, discussed the pyrolysis technology in which wastes are processed into electrical and heat energy. This concept and its execution were part of a project co-financed with the EU funds.
After the Conference, our guests had the opportunity to visit two innovative installations for waste pyrolysis, designed and operated by the company Metal Expert. One installation is located in the Metal Expert laboratory in The Elblag Technology Park, the other is a large-scale installation located at the area of The Municipal Waste Treatment Centre in Elblag. Our guests had opportunity to participate in the pyrolysis process, during which they could observe and follow the processing of Refused Derived Fuel (RDF). Conference ended with a visit in The Municipal Waste Treatment Centre, where our guests were guided by its Director Marian Wojtkowski.
The event was organized in collaboration with Bioelektra Group SA, under the auspices of the Jagiellonian Institute. We would like to thank our guests and co-organizers for being with us at this event.
