The International Technical Waste Conference (JTIR) will be held in Porto, from the 21st to the 23rd of November 2017, during a complex and challenging time for the Sector
Today we faced low levels of performance in the Waste Sector, regarding the targets set by the European Union.
This situation opens the opportunity to reflect, discuss and present new ideas and solutions that can contribute to a positive growth, a constructive revision of PERSU 2020 (Portuguese Strategic Plan for Waste), create value, job growth and a better environment in Portugal.
The Circular Economy, its concept and its practice, should also guide us in deep reflection, involving Policy Makers, Specialists, Technicians and Researchers, generating knowledge and producing actions that, well executed, can solve problems and blockages of the Waste Sector.
The Portuguese Association for Sanitary and Environment Engineering (APESB), following the 17th ENASB and several other events recently promoted, presents the 10th International Technical Waste Conference, to be held at the Campus of the Instituto Superior de Engenharia do Porto.
The model defined for these days intends to focus on topics considered to be priorities for the sector, namely “door-to-door selective collection”, “collection of bio-waste” and “payt systems”, among others.
At the same time, in the field of waste recovery, the issues of TMB operations as well as the destinations to give to the Rest Fraction are other concerns to be discussed.
In addition, it is also important to provide more knowledge in areas such as Public Cleaning, Low Carbon Mobility, Waste Management in Events, Sports Facilities, among others.
For all these reasons, through the debate, networking, master class and technical visits promoted, it is important to count with your presence, in order to value and contribute strongly to the development of this Sector.
We hereby invite those interested to submit their Communications to the Scientific Committee of the Conference and to be included in the Program. All professionals of the Sector will also be welcome to participate in the debates, hearings and events of the Conference.
Welcome to Porto.
