The role of food waste management in a circular economy will be the topic of a dedicated session at the next Life Cycle Management conference LCM 2017 in Luxembourg. The panel discussion will explore the role the waste management and valorisation sector plays in regards to food waste as industry and society moves towards a circular economy. The call for abstracts is open until December 15th, 2016.
Taking a life cycle perspective is important when trying to understand the broader implications of systems and innovations. This is also key to the growing circular economy movement. In REFRESH there is a dedicated work package exploring the methodological challenges in regard of food waste, for prevention, valorisation or end of life disposal.
To encourage a wider discussion on the importance of food waste management and valorisation, there will be a dedicated session at the next Life Cycle Management Conference, in 2017 in Luxembourg. It will be co-chaired by Nicole Unger, from the REFRESH team, and Marco Ricci.
Focus will be on the role the waste management and valorisation sector plays in regards of food waste plays as industry and society moves towards a circular economy mode.
A detailed description of the session can be found at the conference website (session title: 'Food waste management (sector) in a circular economy').
We would like to encourage everybody with experience in this field to submit an abstract to this session.
Deadline for abstract submission is Dec 15th 2016.
