18th INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM ON WASTE MANAGEMENT
AND SUSTAINABLE LANDFILLING / 11-15 OCTOBER 2021

Sustainable landfilling for closing the material loop

No matter how much recycling is performed, the Circular Economy always rejects a residual fraction from the productive system, devoid of any technical or economic value, which requires a safe final disposal.
In this view, the modern role of the landfill consists in providing a final sink for all the waste which otherwise would increase the diffuse pollution.

This topic will focus on the identification of final disposal systems and of the possible waste pre-treatment, required for assuring the environmental sustainability in the long term, evaluating the effects on human health.
