Conference | November 21—23, 2017
ISEP, Porto, Portugal

The International Technical Waste Conference (JTIR) will be held in Porto, from the 21st to the 23rd of November 2017, during a complex and challenging time for the Sector.

Today we face low levels of performance in the Waste Sector, regarding the targets set by the European Union. This situation opens the opportunity to reflect, discuss and present new ideas and solutions that can contribute to a positive growth, a constructive revision of PERSU 2020 (Portuguese Strategic Plan for Waste), create value, job growth and a better environment in Portugal.

The Circular Economy, its concept and its practice, should also guide us in deep reflection, involving Policy Makers, Specialists, Technicians and Researchers, generating knowledge and producing actions that, well executed, can solve problems and blockages of the Waste Sector.

The 10th International Technical Waste Conference, to be held at the Campus of the Instituto Superior de Engenharia do Porto, is promoted by the Portuguese Association for Sanitary and Environment Engineering (APESB).
