Internacional Conference Wastes: Solutions, Treatments and Opportunities 2017




The international conference Wastes: Solutions, Treatments and Opportunities is the largest event organized by CVR, being one of the main vehicles for promotion and international recognition of the Center.

Taking place every two years, in different Portuguese cities, it is a reference forum for the presentation, clarification, debate and exchange of ideas on the theme of waste management in a circular perspective.

Wastes 2017 took place in the city of Porto, specifically at FEUP - Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto, on the 25th and 26th of September.

The event was attended by 218 participants from 22 countries, who had the opportunity to attend 3 plenary sessions and 93 oral communications, in addition to a session where 69 posters were presented.

Repeating the model adopted in the 2015 edition, the scientific production of the conference was gathered in two books, one of «Selected Papers» by Taylor & Francis and the «Book of Proceedings» of the event.

The next edition of Wastes should take place in September 2022, in the city of Coimbra.
