Details

The "International Workshop on Advances in Cleaner Production" is a multi/interdisciplinary forum for the exchange of information and research results on technologies, concepts and policies based on Cleaner Production and conceived to assist the desired transition to a sustainable society.

Cleaner Production is a concept that goes far beyond the simple pollution control. It includes research and development of new processes, materials and products directed to promote the efficient use of resources and energy. Prevention must be the first approach of governments and corporations concerning sustainable development, and for this, environmental friendly strategies allied to economical robustness of products and services must be assured.

The adoption of Cleaner Production by governments, companies, and universities is getting speed with technical assistance and training programs, but it is worthy of attention that all these initiatives, even if implemented by all governments and corporations, do not guarantee the achievement of sustainable development. There is still a lack of a science, and consequently of a consolidated engineering devoted to the sustainable development.

Objectives

The "9th International Workshop on Advances in Cleaner Production" is an international forum to be held in may 25th to 27th, 2020 in Melbourne, Australia. The conference theme is focused on xxx at a time of global unrest about climate change, disruptive weather events and renewed focus on sustainable and just transitions.

Papers reporting on original research may cover topics related to cleaner production, sustainable development and regulation/governance and are especially invited on:

  • Circular economy
  • Climate change
  • Ethical/Just transitions
  • Development and sustainable, ethical transitions
  • Community energy
  • Materials used in technology central to transitions [eg. Conflict and critical materials]
  • Higher education and sustainability
  • Energy-food-water nexus and the UN SDGs
  • Transitions and the Global South
  • Energy, water or food Indigenous issues

The "9th International Workshop: Advances in Cleaner Production" aims to promote:

  1. The exchange of academic information
  2. The presentation of recent achievements
  3. The discussion of common problems and their possible solutions
  4. The contact among academic knowledge and corporative experiences
  5. The discussion of the event’s theme “Towards Sustainable Energy-Water-Food Nexus: The Contribution of Cleaner Production”

Researchers interested on Cleaner Production and Sustainable Development are invited to submit papers. Authors devoted to correlated themes are also welcome.

Refunds need cancellation by May 1 with 15% administration fee deducted.
