MatER + Final Sinks Meeting 2023 | Topics and Submission ENG

CONFERENCE TOPICS – 2023 EDITION

The 6th MatER meeting will be held on 5th – 7th of June 2023, together with the  7th 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.

If you are interested in participating, please check the main topics of interest and decide which one better fits your work. The conjunction between the 2 meetings opens to a wide range of thematic of interest, including but not limited to:
