Sardegna 2011

Tredicesima la gestione dei rifiuti e Simposio Internazionale sulle discariche.
Santa Margherita di Pula (Cagliari), 3 – 7 ottobre 2011


Waste management strategies and technologies are currently undergoing rapid development. The Sardinia Symposia were established in order to make knowledge and experiences in this field readily available. The Symposia have become the Reference Forum, where leading experts meet and present their research activities and experiences and discuss new concepts and technologies. The Symposia have witnessed and contributed worldwide to the development of modern waste management strategies such as the integrated waste management hierarchy, recovery of energy and sustainable landfilling. The twelfth Symposium was held in October 2009 in the traditional venue of the Forte Village Complex at S.Margherita di Pula (Cagliari), with an attendance of approximately 1000 delegates from approx. 80 different countries.

The Symposium will focus on innovative aspects of Sustainable Waste Management, presenting new technologies, describing the state of the art and related case studies, discussing controversial subjects, sharing experiences among different countries and evaluating social and economical balances. The Symposium will include oral presentations, poster sessions, specialized sessions and specific workshops. Training courses will be offered by the IWWG under the supervision of international leading experts before the start of the Symposium.

Organisations, Associations and Companies are traditionally welcome to organise their internal meetings during the event, with the support of the Symposium Organisation. To increase the participations of Authors from public bodies in developing countries, the Symposium Organisation is encouraging offers of fellowships by Public and Private Sponsors.
