Circular Economy & Innovation in Waste ManagementURBAN ENVIRONMENT
Some trends are clear. There will be more people in the world, we will be a more urbanized society over time, urban societies will consume more resources per capita, many resources will be scarce and the environmental cost of creating virgin resources will soon be too much for the planet to bear. This is why a circular economy is such an appealing concept.
This session will put its theoretical model to practical realizations with examples such as territorial initiatives between different agents in order to impulse the circular economy in the region, different ways of manage waste and turn it into a sustainable fuel, innovation projects for switching to a circular economy model.
