11th IWACP Experience

This website is the result of the academic community's efforts to make progress in Cleaner Production and Sustainability. Thanks to all the participants, for joining us in this journey, as we all are exploring a new territory and the challenges of converting a conference to an online version.

With more than 123 registrations and 51 contributions included in the conference proceedings, the conference fulfilled its goal of continuing the important work of communicating important subject ‘’Environmental Challenges: Action or Reaction to Save the Planet? Local and Global Strategies for Ecological and Societal Transition’’.

This page contains the memories of this special IWACP, in a special year: conference proceedings, technical report, videos of awarded works submitted in 11th IWACP and videos of speeches of the high-end researchers of our community.



The Organizing Committee is extremely grateful to the invited speakers and their kind participation.
