ISWA Beacon 3rd Conference on Final Sinks

From Product Design to Clean Cycles and Safe Final Sinks

Venue: Taipei Taiwan, 23-26, Aug 2015 

 Conference Website:

Final sinks have become a critical issue for sustainable material use. The linear throughputs of materials are depleting resources and are a stress on available sinks. For sustainable materials management, we need a broader understanding and new solutions for the production, management and disposal of harmful and non-recyclable material. Extending the scope from the 1st and 2nd Final Sink Conferences, this meeting will go beyond landfilling and address wider topics, including

·   Methodologies to follow materials through the economy

·   Design of products and systems in view of clean cycles and final sinks

·   Extended producer responsibility

·   Cross-countries supply chain materials management

·   Waste management focusing on clean cycles

·   Management of safe final sinks for conventional and nuclear wastes
