Who We Are?

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 "13th International Workshop on Advances in Cleaner Production" is an international forum to be held in november, 5th to 8th, 2024. The "13th 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 “Fostering Sustainability: ESG Strategies for Cleaner Production, Social Equity and Ethical Governance”.

 

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