7th SYMPOSIUM ON CIRCULAR ECONOMY AND URBAN MINING
CAPRI, ITALY / 15-16-17 MAY 2024

SUM 2024: SAVE THE DATE!

SUM 2024 - 7th Symposium on Circular Economy and Urban Mining - has been held from 15th to 17th May 2024 in the fascinating venue of Capri, Italy at the Municipal Congress Centre.

Saving and recovery of resources and increasing need of environmental sustainability have been the driving forces for the development of Circular Economy and Urban Mining strategies. These represent a real revolution in waste management as well in several other fields. In order to optimise them, a scientific approach is necessary, involving all the different disciplines (Engineering, Economy, Chemistry, etc.), all possible stakeholders (industries, researchers, waste management companies, citizens, decision makers, administrators, regulators, politicians, etc.) and considering all the implementation aspects including the most critical ones, such as quality of recycled products, sustainable management of residues, symbiosis between producers and recyclers, stability of markets, end of waste regulations, role of final sinks, etc.

The SUM Symposium, organised biennially since 2012 by IWWG–International Waste Working Group, nowadays represents the ideal reference Forum for Circular Economy and Urban Mining, where scientists and stakeholders from all around the globe can debate the most advanced results and focus on future needs.
The Symposium was held under the patronage of the Italian Ministry of Environment and Energy Security, ISPRA–Italian Institute for Environmental Protection and Research, ENEA–Italian National Agency for New Technologies, Energy and Sustainable Economic Development and under the aegis of Tavolo di Roma.

The scientific programme included over 140 presentations organised in 4 parallel sessions! Check it out >
