Good separate collection (in quantitative and qualitative terms) and an adequate capacity of recycling, recovery and disposal facilities, are absolutely necessary but not sufficient conditions to close the waste management cycle. The "loop" can only be closed with the return into the production cycles of the material and energy resources present in the waste. Without adequate demand for secondary raw materials and products obtained from waste recovery, the transition to the circular economy risks not being completed, compromising the great transformation effort of the national industry. The conference aims to illustrate and discuss with some of the main European and national players, innovative proposals to support the demand for secondary raw materials and products obtained from waste recovery, through the adoption of incentive economic tools and measures.
