6th MatER Meeting and 7th Conference on Final Sinks – SAVE THE DATE

We are pleased to officially announce the dates of the 6th MatER Meeting and 7th International Conference on Final Sinks.

The main theme of this edition will be “Waste Recovery & Final Sinks for a sustainable ecological transition” and the event will be held from June 5th to 7th 2023 at the campus of the Politecnico di Milano in Piacenza, Italy.

The meeting contents cover the general topic of waste recovery and sinks for a sustainable ecological transition, arising from the connections between the fundamental address given by past editions of MatER and Final Sinks conferences. The former included all aspects related to technical and operating requirements and perspectives of options and policies for material and energy recovery from waste, whilst the latter focused on topics related to handling alternatives of material flows and stocks, either from resource exploitation and conservation aspects than from their environmentally sound perspectives. Both events share the common address of analyzing, as a whole, the potentials available for enhancing the transition towards more sustainable waste management systems, which is specifically now included as the main general issue of the forthcoming edition of the joint meeting.

Further information will be released on our website www.mater.polimi.it over the next few months, including the general topics considered for the presentations and the opening terms for the call for Abstract.

The countdown is on!
