  • Production, purification and application of Biogas
  • Processing of plastics and other recyclables
  • Processing and utilization of mineral waste

The conference will be held from the 14th to the 16th of May 2019 in Hanover, Germany. On the day before the conference, an introductory seminar on mechanical and biological waste treatment (MBT) in English is available. Also a site visit of MBT Hanover on the 17th of May can be booked.
