Verònica will be one of the speakers of the session “Bio-waste and bio-waste treatment technologies”, which will take place on October 8 at 4:30 p.m. The presentation is focused on the decision support tool that the H2020 DECISIVE project is developing, in which the ENT Foundation participates: A Decision Support Tool (DST) has been developed to assess the performance of biowaste management strategies in specific areas based on environmental, economic, social and regulatory aspects. The paper describes the DST of the H2020 DECISIVE project, including its development process and model architecture.
The ISWA World Congress is a global meeting which includes high level plenaries as well as technical site visits and a cultural and social programme where waste management professionals, government officials, industry leaders, policy makers, scientists and young professionals meet to exchange views and opinions to advance scientific and technical knowledge for sustainable solid waste management.
