Tuesday 6th - Session F (Ex Wine Bar Room)

- 9:00 - 10:40
Workshop: Economic assessment of separate collection
Chair: Salvatore Masi (IT)

Separate collection is considered unavoidable in any modern waste management strategy. Door to door systems have achieved broad diffusion; however, in many cases administrators fear the transition from traditional waste collection systems because of a possible increase in waste fees and a subsequent loss of electoral support. In this workshop novel methods for the assessment of the impact of door to door collection on the service costs will be presented and results of case studies discussed.

Introductory lectures:

C.M. Robu (IT)
Door to door collection and disposal alternatives in Italy: an average cost function analysis
M. Bocciarelli, M. Donati, C. Bertolotti, F.D. Faraci, M. Bergonzoni (IT)
Pilot project for the traceability of waste in a hilly area of the province of Parma for the optimization of door-to-door waste sorting

10:40 - 11:10 Coffee break

SESSION F4 - 11:10 - 12:50
IWWG Workshop: Biological H2 production
Chair: Aldo Muntoni (IT)

The workshops will address the most recent and relevant novelties in the field of Hydrogen Production from biomass and waste, focusing in particular on the integration of the biological process with other treatment options and on the real possibilities and current challenges for scaling-up the process and its full application.

Introductory lecture:

L. Alibardi, R. Cossu, A. Muntoni , A. Polettini (IT)
Waste and biorefinery - A new boost for dark fermentation?
C. Niño, E.I.Garcia-Peña, I. Chairez, J.Ramirez
Hydrodynamic characterization of a pilot reactor used for hydrogen production from organic solid waste

12:50 - 15:30 Lunch break

SESSION F5 - 15:30 - 17:10
IWWG Workshop: Waste and Art
Chair: Rainer Stegmann (DE)

The practice of making art from waste and unusual material is widely spread. This is in response to the need for artists, designers and academic institutions to engage with new forms of creativity but also to be part of a move towards waste reduction awareness.
Why is this significant to waste experts? 
The utilization of waste materials in art does not necessarily result in a substantial increase in recycling or in the reduction of waste but it can change the way in which waste is perceived. Bringing waste back to people in an attractive form can challenge the thinking of the waste experts and awaken an interest in those unaware of waste management problems.

Introductory lectures:

R. Stegmann (DE), C. Van Der Westhuyzen (ZA) 
From waste-to-art and art-to-waste
D. Reinhart, S. Bolyard, M. Georgiopoulos, B. Swan, V. Mcneil, C. Poindexter, C. Efthimiou, B. Furino, J.Kim, A. Huang (US)

17:10 - 17:40 Coffee break
17:40 - 18:00 Poster discussion

SESSION F6 - 18:00 - 19:40
IWWG Workshop: Nanomaterials
Chairs: Pierre Hennebert (FR), Marion Huber-Humer (AT), Florian Part (AT)

Engineered nanomaterials (ENMs) are currently used in over 1,600 consumer products. As these ENM-laden materials and/or products reach the end of their useful life, the development of appropriate end-of-life management strategies to manage the ENMs is critical to minimize human and/or environment exposure. Currently, there are significant knowledge and data gaps associated with the fate of these embedded ENMs in waste management processes, limiting our ability to develop appropriate end-of-life strategies. This workshop will consist of presentations and discussions related to ENM fate in waste management processes, as well as the identification of research needs and challenges.

Introductory lectures:

F. Part, K. Hänel, M. Huber-Humer (AT)
Material flow analysis of six consumer products containing engineered nanomaterials – A case study from Austria
P. Hennebert, P. Merdy, A. Anderson (FR)

S. Bolyard, D. Reinhart, S. Santra (US)
Behavior of engineered nanoparticles in landfill leachate
S. Suzuki, F. Part, M. Huber-Humer, Y. Matsufuji (JP)
