MatER Study Center organizes its 5th MatER Meeting together with the 6th International Conference on Final Sinks. The conjunction of the two events arises from the link between the fundamental goal of MatER and Final Sinks conferences. The first one aims at providing a thorough, objective representation of technologies and policies for material and energy recovery from waste, thereby contributing to moving toward sustainable waste management. The second usually addresses different topics regarding the handling of material flows and stocks from the resource and waste management perspective.
Due to the common interest in the field of the circular economy, in the reusing, recovering, and recycling of waste materials and many other themes, the 2 conferences will merge and the event is going to take place from 7th to 9th of June 2021.
The event is organized by LEAP – Laboratorio Energia Ambiente Piacenza with the scientific support of DICA (Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering) and Energy Department of Politecnico di Milano.
The MatER & Final Sinks 2021 Meeting is completely ONLINE
The 3-days Meeting will comprise oral and poster presentations over these indicative subjects:
- Material recovery
- Innovative technologies
- Biowaste valorization
- Final Sinks
- Sustainability & Regulation
- Energy recovery
According to the nature of the MatER Study Center and the International Conference on final sinks, for the last day of the event (Wednesday, June 9th) we will give you the opportunity to attend a comprehensive technical virtual visit to material and energy recovery from waste facilities, thanks to the collaboration with our industrial partners.
CALL FOR ABSTRACTS
There will be a single call for abstracts for the 2 events, available on the MatER website. Both scientific & technical contributions are extremely appreciated, with a shorter abstract required to works from an industrial perspective or involving existing plants and technologies.
Submitted abstracts will be evaluated according to their innovation and scientific value and will be selected for presentation as oral communications or posters. All the works selected will be collected in the proceedings of the Meeting and provided to all participants.
