Following the success of the 8th edition held online in 2020 (with 230 delegates from 38 different countries despite the pandemic), we are pleased to announce VENICE 2022 – 9TH INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM ON ENERGY FROM BIOMASS AND WASTE, to be held in person from 21st to 23rd November 2022 in Venice, Italy.
The Symposium will take place in a prestigious new venue, Palazzo Dandolo, incorporated in the first-class Hotel Monaco & Grand Canal, just a few steps away from Piazza San Marco.
The production of energy from alternative sources and its impact on climate change are among the main strategic tools implicated in the sustainable development of society, particularly in this period where geopolitics and dependence on energy have become such an important issue.
Numerous types of biomass and wastes contribute towards the production of energy and reduction in the use of fossil fuels by means of biological, chemical and thermal processes. Existing biomass and waste to energy technologies are currently undergoing rapid development. Despite growing interest in use of these technologies however, implementation in many countries remains limited.
The aim of the Venice Symposium is to focus on advances made in the application of technologies for energy recovery from biomass and waste and to encourage discussion in these fields.
The Symposium is organised by IWWG–International Waste Working Group with the scientific support of the Universities of Hamburg, Padova, Queensland, Rostock, Tongji and Zhejiang. The event is held under the patronage of the Italian Ministry of Ecological Transition.
The programme will include 3 days of scientific presentations and social events. On Wednesday, 23 November, join the Gala dinner to celebrate with us the closure of the conference with a dancing party in typical Venetian style. The event will take place in the magnificent Salone del Ridotto in the Hotel Monaco & Grand Canal.
