Welcome

to the 5th International Conference on Final Sinks, held in Vienna, Austria. The scientific program will consist of plenary session, keynote lectures, and oral/poster presentations.

The conference will address different topics regarding the handling of material flows and stocks from the resource and waste management perspective. Representatives from universities, research centers, industrial or public organisations and governments are welcomed to attend the conference in order to share their experiences.

Topics:

  • Material Flow Analysis as a tool to design a clean Circular Economy
  • Technologies to remove/lock out detrimental materials during recycling
  • Conflict between recycling goals and human & environmental health protection
  • Case studies on material cycles and contaminants
  • Case studies on assessing the quality of recovered materials from waste flows and deposits
  • Urban metabolism and urban mining
  • Methodologies to assess the effectiveness and efficiency of recycling systems
  • Strategies for reducing contamination of material cycles and providing final sink capacities
  • Legal frameworks as enabler or barrier for establishing clean material cycles
  • Social acceptance of end-of-pipe technologies as final sink for hazardous substances

The scientific program is now available!

Please have a glance at topics and speakers:

PROGRAM

The 5th International Conference on Final Sinks (ICFS 2019) invites researchers from around the world to submit abstracts for oral or poster presentation at our biennial conference which takes place this year in Vienna, Austria.

The focus is on ‘Recycling and its effects on product quality and final sink necessity’.

The conference will feature a wide range of exciting talks, discussions, and networking opportunities with experts, researchers and stakeholders in the field of resource and waste management.

This is an opportunity to share your research with international colleagues and actively contribute to the advances in your field of research.

Submission for abstracts for oral presentation is closed but we still welcome abstracts for poster related to the topics in the accompanying list.

Dear Colleagues,

we would like to refer to our Welcome Reception of the 5th International Conference on Final Sinks.

It will start on Sunday at 5:30pm in the Wiener Konzerthaus, one of the most renowned Concert Halls in the World. After Meet and Greet in the Mozart Foyer there will be a Guided Tour through the building (ca. one hour; free of charge) and at 7:30pm we attend a Concert in the Grand Hall. Together with Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen and conducted by Maestro Paavo Järvi, Igor Levit will perform the 2nd Piano Concert by Johannes Brahms. Recently, Levit has been attributed as “one of the essential artists of his generation“ by the New York Times. After the break the so-called “Symphony with the Drumroll” by Joseph Haydn will be given. We have reserved a contingent of tickets for EUR 68/55/46/38 which can be selected during registration (only until Oct. 20th).

We would be happy if you join us the full evening at the Wiener Konzerthaus!

Venue

The conference will take place at the TU Wien, in the wonderful cupola hall (Kuppelsaal).

The cupola hall has been used for events since 2009 as a lecture hall. The nearly 200 years old wooden construction with its attached mansard roof has been maintained and gives the interior an unmistakable appearance.

TU Wien is one of the most prestigious universities of technology in the world by presenting a top level of research and education. TU Wien is among the most successful technical universities in Europe and is Austria’s largest scientific-technical research and educational institution. As a university of technology, TU Wien covers a wide spectrum of scientific concepts from abstract pure research and the fundamental principles of science to applied technological research and partnership with industry. For 200 years, TU Wien has been a place of research, teaching and learning in the service of progress.

The university is very centrally located, within walking distance of many attractions and easily accessible by public transport.

Vienna

Welcome to the world capital of music! More famous composers have lived here than in any other city, and music is literally in the air in Vienna: waltz and operetta are at home here, and musicals “made in Vienna” have conquered international audiences.

Vienna is the capital and the cultural, economic and political center of Austria with around 1.9 million inhabitants.

Vienna is old, but Vienna is also new – and diverse: from the magnificent buildings of the baroque to the “golden” Art Nouveau to contemporary architecture. And more than 100 museums attract millions of visitors to the city each year.

Take your time and walk in the footsteps of the Habsburg monarchy of yesteryear, visit the magnificent baroque palaces of Schönbrunn and Belvedere, visit the Hofburg Palace or stroll along the magnificent Ringstrasse.
