The ambitious goals of the new Circular Economy Action Plan, as well as the strategic importance for Europe to limit its dependence from other world regions, in terms of material and energy resources, require the implementation of innovative recycling and recovery processes. This seminar is aimed at presenting technological innovations, which can improve the efficiency of secondary material valorization, increasing the circularity of materials and decreasing energy consumption. The presented activities could be related to different sectors (urban or industrial waste, residues, by-produSTC) and various categories of materials (plastics, metals, WEEE, textiles, building and construction, food, etc.)
