MatER + Final Sinks Meeting 2021 | Topics and Submission

CONFERENCE TOPICS

The 5th MatER meeting will be held on 7th – 9th of June 2021, together with the  6th International Conference on Final Sinks. 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 online. 

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.

The Call for Abstracts is STILL Open
