SUM 2016 – 3rd Symposium on Urban Mining

Following the huge success of its second edition in 2014, which registered the participation of more than 200 delegates from 40 different countries worldwide, SUM 2016 - 3rd Symposium on Urban Mining will be held in the suggestive former Monastery of Saint Augustine in Bergamo's upper city, from 23rd to 25th of May 2016. The Symposium is organized by IWWG - International Waste Working Group and it will last three days, including oral sessions, a poster session and a technical tour.

SUM 2016 will focus on the concept of Urban Mining and the need to look beyond separate collection and the current logic of consumers responsibility, resulting in an increased recovery of resources, better quality of the same, improved environmental protection, involvement of producer responsibility and lower costs for society.
