The conference aims to address the significant issue of sustainable solid waste management through the promotion of safe practices and effective technologies. The conference focuses mainly on modern solid waste technologies. It aims to stimulate the interest of scientists and citizens and inform them about the latest developments in the field of municipal solid waste management. Separation at source, biological treatment, the treatment at central facilities, waste prevention, biowaste utilization, recycling promotion, sludge management, agricultural and livestock waste, management of specific waste streams (construction and demolition waste, waste from electrical and electronic equipment, etc.) constitute main conference subjects. Special attention will be drawn to the valorization prospects and the products from solid waste, such as biofuels, compost, materials, etc. The new concept of this conference is that it hopes to strengthen the link of the applied research with industry. Emphasis will be placed on waste management issues in islands and generally isolated areas. Biotechnology, circular economy, best available techniques, symbiosis networks, energy consumption and saving, carbon footprint and water footprint, zero-waste initiatives, marine litter constitute new target areas of the conference. The conference will provide an opportunity to bring together scientists and professionals from government departments, industries, Municipalities, private institutions, research and education institutions, being a forum for the exchange of the most recent ideas, techniques and experiences in all areas of solid waste management. A special workshop will also focus on the industrial operation and the support to the industries in order to improve their performance with parallel environmental and financial benefits.
