The symposium encompasses all topics related to the recycling and recovery of polymeric wastes like waste plastics (municipal, industrial, production, process, e-waste) and biomass.

  • Polymer waste management around the world
  • Polymeric waste availability and conversion methods – statistics and strategies
  • Mechanical recycling of waste plastics
  • Thermo-chemical routes (pyrolysis, gasification, combustion etc.) for industrial,   municipal plastic waste and biomass
  • Biological routes for industrial, municipal plastic waste and biomass
  • E-waste treatment techniques
  • Metal recovery from polymeric waste
  • Recycling techniques for precious metals/noble earths
  • Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastic (CFRP) recycling – recycling of polymer compounds
  • Recycling of solar batteries and panels
  • Sustainability – LCA studies – socio-economic questions of recycling
