ISIE SEM 2022 – Congratulations!
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!

EU Commission adopted a new Circular Economy Action Plan
End of March the EU Commission published a package of EU Green Deal proposals for a climate-neutral and competitive economy. The proposals include strategies to make sustainable products the norm in the EU and the introduction of a Digital Product Passport, to empower consumers for the green transition and to boost circular business models while protecting the environment. Further, the package includes a non-binding document to improve the sustainability and circularity of Textiles and the revision of the Construction Product Regulation.
The relevant documents can be found on the website under EU Documents.
