The current circular material use rate in the EU is estimated below 12%, indicating a considerable difficulty in the valorisation of end-of-life goods. Thus, the increasing demand for natural resources still characterizes most economic value chains, hindering an effective implementation of the principles of circular economy. A stronger effort is clearly needed to reach the European target of recycling and recovery, with the fundamental contribution of technological innovations, which can trigger virtuous industrial experiences.

This seminar will propose examples of novel technical solutions which could have the potential to significantly improve the performance of waste valorisation in different economic sectors.
