International Circular Economy Conference Rhineland-Palatinate 2012

Increasing energy and resource prices as well as international climate protection obligations are challenging industrialised and emerging economies. Nowadays, energy and material efficiency technologies and services are a necessity to maintain and increase the competitiveness of enterprises and regions. New Circular Economy models characterised by regional cross-sectoral networks, regional development strategies, and value adding policies are the backbone of sustainable societies of the future.

Before this background the Institute for Applied Material Flow Management (IfaS), an in-institute of the University of Applied Sciences Trier, on-site the Environmental Campus Birkenfeld (ECB) is hosting the “International Circular Economy Conference of  Rhineland-Palatinate” on a yearly basis.
