The two-days meeting will comprise 4 sessions on the following topics:
Session 1 Strategies and perceptions on waste management
Waste management lies at a crucial interconnection between Science, Technology, Sociology and Economy. Not only does waste require Science and Technology for proper management, but also strategies and behaviors that can adequately handle its impact, promote its use as a resource and give evidence to values and costs. This session focuses on the latest developments in the interdisciplinary, unconventional area aimed at accomplishing a positive vision of waste. For which the capability of communicating what are the real issues at stake has become an overwhelming requirement.
Session 2 Closing the loop: potentials and critical issues
This session will focus on the potentiality of circular economy in reducing the environmental impacts associated with waste management and in increasing the efficient use of resources, through reuse and recycling. At the same time, the critical issues of this approach will be analysed, such as the quality of recycled materials and their actual use in the market, the data availability for the calculation of reuse and recycling targets, and the implementation of effective prevention strategies.
Session 3 Processes and technologies for energy recovery
This track covers both state-of-the-art energy recovery from waste, and the most recent trends of the sector. Case studies, innovative technologies and scientific studies will be presented. The themes of energy efficiency, environmental and economic sustainability of waste to energy technologies will be discussed also in the light of the next changes in the normative framework (e.g. the revision of the Bref WI).
Session 4 Processes and technologies for material recovery
This session will be devoted to processes and technologies for material recovery from waste, with a focus on emerging critical issues, and on generation and management of process residues. Focus is on materials from separate collection, organic fractions intended for material recovery and residues from energy recovery treatments (e.g. bottom and fly ash of incineration plants).
Key-note lectures will open each session.
A poster session will also take place for each day of the Meeting.
Oral communications as well as posters could be presented in English or Italian, for oral communications simultaneous translation will be provided.
Renergia, a brand new Waste-to-Energy (WtE) facility opened in Canton Lucerne, shows that Waste-to-Energy can provide reliable heat for industries.Category: Incineration / Waste-to-Energy plant
In Slovenia arises one of the largest and most modern waste treatment plants in Europe.Category: Recycling / MBT
The final unit of the incineration plant is one of the most important parts as it has the objective of cleaning the air pollutants produced.Category: Incineration
The biogas produced from the waste can be converted in a CHP to electrical and thermal energy or fed as processed bio-methane into the natural gas grid or used as fuel (CNG).Category: Recycling / Fermentation
The Bio-Dry™ system is a static, aerated and flexibly enclosed reactor for the biological drying of various solid waste matters containing some biodegradable contents.Category: Recycling / MBT
