The 7th 3R International Scientific Conference (3RINCs)

11 & 15 - 19 March 2021

Although social activity has stagnated due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many parts of the world have already begun to rebuild their economies with green recovery policies. Green recovery is also required in the field of waste and material cycling. Under these circumstances, global academics, policymakers, and business representatives, especially those from the Asia-Pacific region, came together for interdisciplinary discussions.

In the "Special Session" of the conference, participants, with respect to various countries, shared information about and discussed topics such as: analytical methods of plastic waste, organic waste and food waste management, disaster waste management, and waste management during/after COVID-19.

The "General Session" covered a wide range of topics and be a good opportunity to publish your research outputs as part of the proceedings e-book. There was also an opportunity to submit a full paper for the special issue of a well-known international journal. We focused on the dissemination of information from companies and the exchange of ideas between companies and researchers/participants during discussions of global issues in the field of waste and material cycling.

In addition, the plenary lectures and special events on disaster waste were organised in order to communicate with a larger number of participants. 

This was a unique opportunity to listen intensively to these discussions and to interact with the people involved.
