The 8th International Conference on Sustainable Solid Waste Management THESSALONIKI 2021 was held from June 23-26. The conference, which was originally scheduled for summer 2020, had to be postponed to 2021, due to the global pandemic caused by COVID-19. However, this year, the event took place online, in order to comply with health measures.
The objective of the Conference is to address the important issue of sustainable solid waste management by promoting safe practices and effective technologies. The Conference focuses primarily on modern solid waste technologies. It aims to stimulate the interest of scientists and citizens and to inform them about the latest developments in the field of municipal solid waste management with emphasis on circular economy in all key action areas and in all priority sectors.
The LIFE LEACHLESS project has already had the privilege of participating in a previous edition of the Conference. On this occasion, representatives of the project have been able to present the first results obtained from the demonstration plant in the one of the sites where the plant will be operating (Zonzamas Environmental Complex in Lanzarote, Spain).
