VIII International Symposium on Energy from Biomass and Waste - VENICE 2020 


The production of energy from alternative sources and its impact on climate change are among the main strategic tools implicated in the sustainable development of our society. Numerous types of biomass and wastes contribute towards the production of energy and reduction in the use of fossil fuels by means of biological, chemical and thermal processes. Existing biomass and waste to energy technologies are currently undergoing rapid development. Despite growing interest in the use of these technologies, in many countries their implementation remains limited.

The aim of the Venice 2020 is to focus on the advances made in the application of technologies for energy recovery from biomass and waste and to encourage discussion in these fields. The previous edition of the Symposium, held in 2018, was attended by over 400 scientists and operators from approximately 43 different countries.

The eighth edition of the Symposium will feature:

  • Three days of scientific presentations
  • One day of guided technical tours at biochemical and thermochemical plants
  • Oral sessions, a poster session and an exhibition by companies working in the field
  • Expected attendance of over 500 delegates from tens of different countries worldwide

The Symposium is organised by the International Waste Working Group (IWWG) with the scientific support of the Universities of Padova, Trento, Hokkaido, Rostock, Tsinghua, Queensland and Hamburg University of Technology.

Call for Abstracts:

In response to the numerous requests, we are happy to extend the deadline for submitting abstracts until April 15th, in order to maximise the opportunity for both professional staff and academics to share their latest developments across the range of topics represented at Venice 2020.

Abstracts should be prepared using the template provided using the online submission form.

Call for Workshops:

Workshop proposals may still be integrated into the main Symposium Programme. 

Workshops, some of them purposely made in connection with IWWG tasks groups, have always played a key role in the organization of Venice Symposia, providing a forum where topics presented during oral sessions can be examined in greater detail and the hottest issues in the field of waste to energy appropriately discussed.



Proposals must be submitted by email to papers(at)venicesymposium.it.

For further enquiries and information on registration, accommodation, etc., please contact the Organizing Secretariat EUROWASTE Srl (info(at)eurowaste.it, www.eurowaste.it).

SUM 2020 - Fifth Symposium on Urban Mining and Circular Economy

 

New date & location: Venice, Italy. 18-20 November 2020

The 5th Symposium on Urban Mining and Circular Economy – SUM 2020 – will be held from 18th to 20th November 2020 in Venice, Italy.The Symposium is organized by IWWG - International Waste Working Group with the Scientific Support of the University of Padova and University of Bologna.

To achieve a virtuous application and optimization of current practice, urban mining and circular economy are dependent on the appropriate combination of three worlds (TRIANGLE concept): research and technology (private and public) / administration, economy and industry / policy and regulation. This combination is equally important in other fields of waste management, although is of paramount relevance for a Circular Economy. SUM 2020 will focus on all relevant and innovative aspects relating to these three worlds.

The Symposium will last three days and will include oral sessions, a poster session and a technical tour. The following topics, among others, will be extensively discussed: waste avoidance, sources and characterization of resources in urban areas, technologies for the extraction of materials, techniques of waste segregation, separate collection, takeback programs, recirculation pathways and markets, recovery of abandoned urban areas, carbon and water footprint of material recycling, economic and legal aspects, urban mining and circular economy concepts in developing countries.

Advantageous conditions will be offered to companies wishing to display their practical experience and innovative technologies. Meeting opportunities will also be created to foster cooperation between those involved in industrial production and material recycling.
