Tuesday 15th - Session A

SESSION A4 - 9:00-10:40
Companies Forum (I)
Chair / Presidente: R. Cossu (IT)

The primary goal of these sessions is to foster exchanges between practitioners and the academics, promote novel solutions to today’s challenges in the area of Waste to Energy, provide practitioners in the field an early opportunity to evaluate leading-edge research and present their latest products and services. 
Ample time for discussion will be provided, as well as opportunities for networking.
