Waste Recovery

This session focusses on waste as a resource. All works addressing waste recycling and resource recovery are invited to participate. Waste recovery even though a small contributor to climate change could reduce the consequences of greenhouse gas emissions in other sectors if used as a resource. This also refers to the circular economy policy where a product is used, recycled and reused whereby creating minimum to zero waste. Re-using or recycling waste is viable in many sectors such as paper production, food, nuclear, metal, plastics, textiles and electronics among various others. The waste to be treated manifests in various forms: solid, liquid and gas and usually industrial waste comprises of all three. Fields relating to experimental and theoretical research discussing new and innovative methods and tools in waste reuse are welcome. Further considerations such as socio-economic impact and policy making on waste recycling and resource recovery are also encompassed in this topic.
