5th Symposium on Urban Mining and Circular Economy
With the scientific support of the University of Padova and the University of Bologna, the IWWG is organizing the fifth Symposium on Urban Mining and Circular Economy, to be held in Bologna (Italy) from May 18 to May 20, 2020.
7th International Conference on Industrial and Hazardous Waste Management, Chania-Crete, Greece, September 15 - 18, 2020. Website
One of the official Journals of IWWG is detritus, published by CISA, and edited by Raffaello Cossu with a highly qualified team of Associate Editors.
The journal is aimed at extending the “waste” concept by opening up the field to other waste-related disciplines (e.g. earth science, applied microbiology, environmental science, architecture, art, law, etc.) welcoming strategic, review and opinion papers. The journal has been named Detritus to convey a truly international flavor (the term derives from Latin) and to appropriately represent the notion of the multidisciplinary journal we intend to develop. – more than widely used technical words such as Waste, Recycling, Closing the loop, Sustainable Management, renewable resources, Circular economy, etc. .
Detritus is published quarterly starting from March 2018. The submission and review process has been implemented through the professional platform ScholarOne, powered by Clarivate Analytics. An international high profile Editorial Board manages the journal, and papers undergo the customary high standard peer review procedure, aimed at achieving a top quality production. This allows the journal to be indexed in the leading citation Databases in the future, thus providing the opportunity, with the help of authors and readers, to build up its own impact factor over the next few years.
