SUM 2024: SAVE THE DATE!

Following the incredible success of the previous edition, we are really excited to announce SUM 2024 - 7th SYMPOSIUM ON CIRCULAR ECONOMY AND URBAN MINING, to be held from 15th to 17th May 2024 in the fascinating venue of Capri, Italy.

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.
SUM 2024 is promoted by several national and international bodies and relies on the active involvement of Scientific Committees comprising more than 60 scientists, coming from 28 different countries, spanning all disciplines related to Circular Economy.
The conference programme will feature hundreds of scientific presentations unfolding in parallel tracks of oral sessions, workshops, posters and many other engaging activities.

THE CALL FOR PAPERS IS OFFICIALLY OPEN! Submit your proposal by 4th March 2024.
