If you will be attending the forthcoming SUM 2022 – Sixth Symposium on Circular Economy and Urban Mining, you will be lucky enough to hear directly from the Biocircularcities project.

Indeed, the paper “Biocircularcities project: circular bioeconomy in urban contexts”, prepared by ENEA and ENT, has been accepted for an oral presentation during the 2022 edition of the SUM symposium that will take place on 18-20 May in Capri (Italy).

The SUM Symposium, organised biennially since 2012 by IWWG–International Waste Working Group, nowadays represents the ideal reference Forum for Circular Economy and Urban Mining, where scientists and stakeholders can debate the most advanced results and focus on future needs. It covers over 17 topics such as: concepts in saving, recovery and recycling of material resources; prevention, minimisation and preparing for reuse; sources and characterisation of valuable materials; appropriate technology for materials recovery and valorisation; specific material flows in circular economy; closing material loops in circular economy; policies and legal aspects; etc.
