ATHENS 2017 - 5th International Conference on Sustainable Solid Waste Management
21.6. - 24.6.2017, Aegli Zappiou, Athens, Greece
The Conference aims to address the significant issue of sustainable solid waste management through the promotion of safe practices & effective technologies. Separation at source, Biological Treatment, the treatment at central facilities, waste prevention, biowaste utilization & recycling promotion constitute main conference subjects. Special attention will be drawn on the challenges of the Waste Framework Directive & the products produced of solid waste, such as: biofuels, compost, materials, etc. The new concept of this conference is that it hopes to strengthen the link of the applied research with industry. Emphasis will be placed on Food Industry. Circular economy, Best Available techniques, symbiosis networks, energy consumption and saving, carbon footprint and water footprint, zero-waste initiatives, marine litter constitute the new target areas of the conference.
Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
- Source separation schemes for solid waste
- Biological treatment techniques (composting & anaerobic digestion)
