About the kick off meeting of OptiWaMag

The meeting brought project partners together who had the chance to meet for the first time and get familiar with each other´s activities and county specific reports
All project partners actively participated at the kick off meeting which was organized by the County of Administrative Board of Östergötland, the Lead Partner of OptiWaMag project.
On the first day of the meeting an offsite field visit was organized to Tekniska verken that operates Gärstad waste incineration plant and manages all types of waste from households and businesses, through recycling centres and customer-specific solutions.
Johan Böök, Public Affairs Manager led the visit and provided insights into the waste management processes, including recovering energy from waste products in the most resource-efficient way. 
The kick off meeting was combined with the Steering Group meeting which took place after the site visit.
The second day started off with an Expert Task Force meeting that was led successfully by the Lead Partner. After the meeting the participants welcomed another expert, Anders Karlsson, the Business Unit manager from Nodra who shared interesting information on waste treatment of households in Norrköping.
Project Partners found the Kick Off Meeting exceptionally effective in mapping out the project’s schedule, review the details and align the next steps.
