Ecomondo 2023 themes
Every year, Ecomondo offers an extensive programme of conferences, seminars and events aimed at exploring the main technological, regulatory and market new developments in the following sectors:
- Circular economy of non-organic supply chains
- Circular economy of organic supply chains
- Water resource management and environmental monitoring
- Regenerative economy and environmental risk prevention
To ensure the quality, innovative and international nature of the content, the Technical Scientific Committee is composed of a pool of 80 top scientists, engineers, managers and representatives of national institutions (ministries, including the Ministry for the Environment and Energy Security, the regions, including Emilia-Romagna) sector associations and federations (Utilitalia, Assombiente, Confindustria, Confindustria Cisambiente, Federalimentare, Federchimica, Confagricoltura), consortia (CONAI, CIB, CIC), agencies and institutes (ISPRA, ENEA, Istituto Superiore di Sanità), to name but a few, but also European and international institutions (the European Commission, OECD, EEA, FAO, etc.).
The 2023 edition will focus on, among other things:
- Level of national implementation of the priorities and flagship projects in the National Recovery and Resilience Plan (PNRR), with particular attention to the WEEE, paper-cardboard, textile and plastic value chains;
- Level of European and international adoption of the circular economy in terms of process and product efficiency, ecodesign, recycling and use of secondary raw materials in the industrial supply chains of the textile, WEEE, plastics, paper-cardboard and construction sectors, with specific references to the new “Green Deal Industrial Plan”;
- Environmental restoration and regeneration of soils and the hydrosphere, with focus on the sustainable production and valorisation of agro-forestry resources (with the production of food, wood, paper, chemical compounds, materials and energy), the sustainable use of water resources and the sea (blue economy), and the integrated management and valorisation of wastewater and municipal organic waste;
- Green and circular cities, cooler and healthier, more efficient in the management and consumption of food and the use of water and energy resources and in the management and valorisation of waste generated;
- Research and innovation and European funding to support them; new regulations, procedures and national and European policies governing their adoption, investment and financing, start-up and training.
