Heading: 2nd Circular Economy Conference Series: “Waste Management in the Circular

Thursday September 16, 2021
12 p.m. – 1:30 p.m.

As part of the Repsol Foundation Conference Series, we’ve joined forces with FUNSEAM to create the “2nd Circular Economy Conference Series”, which consists of four sessions where we will be looking at different topics relating to waste, how it can be used as part of the transition towards the circular economy, and the technological potential for decarbonizing the economy and fulfilling climate commitments.

We’ll learn about the different opportunities arising from the circular economy based on specific experiences and projects that are already underway, all explained by key speakers from the fields of energy and the environment.

In this first session, we’ll be discussing the rise in waste derived from human activity, and the social and environmental predicament this is creating. We will also analyze the situation and future prospects of waste management from a sector-based perspective.

Upcoming sessions:

  • “Economic and energy recovery of waste”, Thursday, September 30, from 12 p.m to 1:30 p.m.
  • “Technological solutions in the waste sector”, Thursday, October 14, from 12 p.m to 1:30 p.m.

“International experiences in waste management”, Thursday, October 28, from 12 p.m to 1:30 p.m.
