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: http://www.icfs2015.org.tw/
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
