SUM 2022 – 6th Symposium on Circular Economy and Urban Mining
The SUM Symposium, organised biennially since 2012 by IWWG–International Waste Working Group, nowadays represents the ideal reference Forum for Circular Economy and Urban Mining, where scientists and stakeholders can debate the most advanced results and focus on future needs.
The 2022 edition will take place from 18th to 20th May 2022 in the fascinating venue of Capri, Italy.
New study: Waste Management can reduce CO2 emissions
Approximately 150 million tons of CO2 equivalents can be saved by 2035 in Europe. This shows a recent study by the European Waste Management Association (FEAD). This is contingent on implementing current municipal waste legislation and maintaining recycling and landfill targets for industrial and commercial waste. If the targets are defined even more ambitious, even up to 296 million tons of CO2eq could be saved.

More circular economy made in Austria
Due to resource scarcity and climate change, the EU wants to move away from the current throwaway society towards a circular economy. To achieve this, more waste must be recycled in the future. The new Christian Doppler Laboratory for Recycling-Based Circular Economy at TU Wien is investigating how this can be achieved. The CD-Laboratory was established in January 2021 under the lead of Dr. Jakob Lederer at the Insitute for Process Engineering, Environmental Engineering and Technical Biosciences.
Encouraged by the EU Commission’s Circular Economy Package (CEP)
