At the 14th Socio-economic Metabolism (SEM) conference of the International Society of Industrial Ecology (ISIE) on “Transfering socio-economic metabolism in times of multiples crisis” the focus lied on the sustainable handling of plastics and plastic packaging. This year the conference was held at the Vienna University of Economics and Business (WU), bringing together industrial ecologists from all over the world.
We were delighted that CEC4Europe was able to donate a poster prize to the winner, Ms. Han Gao, from China. The objective of her study was on the consumption pattern of iron and steel in order to explore the disparities of recycling pattern of steel scraps in major economics.
Congratulations once again!
We are already looking forward to the next conference.
