The ISWA 2020 World Congress will create an interactive environment aiming to exchange views and opinions to advance scientific and technical knowledge on sustainable waste management. The guiding theme for the conference is the transition towards a regenerative economy. Leading topics of the congress will be:

  • Waste Treatment and Recycling
  • Marine Litter
  • Circular and Low Carbon Economy
  • Innovation in Cities
  • Construction and Demolition Waste

Different working formats and alternate room lay outs will be used in order to create focus and an engaging and interactive environment. The guiding theme of the conference will lead up to a statement or memorandum that will be developed during the days of the conference and which will be presented as a deliverable of the conference.


Conference topics will be further developed by the programme committee in close cooperation with the STC and Working Group members.
