Nagoya, Japan and Davos, Switzerland
The R’09 Twin World Congress promotes innovative technologies and frameworks for resource management to improve material and energy efficiencies in the production, use, and recycling of materials.
The R’09 Twin World Congress is the 9th event in the bi-annual R’ World Congress series started in 1993. It aims to improve material and energy efficiencies in industry, including energy supply, cement and building materials, metallurgical, chemical, glass, pulp and paper, machinery, the automobile and electronic industries as well as activities of collection, sorting, further treatment and final disposal of post-consumer material. The factor information and therefore the use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) are of increasing importance in resource management and will find special consideration at R’09.
