Assises des dechets


02 October 2017

The LIFE SMART Waste project was amongst the initiatives discussed at the Assises Nationales des Déchets (National Forum on Waste Management), co-organised by ACR+ member  Nantes Métropole, on 27 and 28 September 2017 in Nantes, France.

Approximately 520 delegates gathered at this biennial forum which focused on the need for the waste management sector to collectively achieve higher performance and recycling, put an end to wastage, implement urban regeneration, and foster smart, innovative territories.

Innovation was a guiding theme throughout the two-day conference and the LIFE SMART Waste project was featured on the opening day during a series of technical workshops. As part of an expert panel speaking about “Putting an end to bad practices”, ACR+ presented to approximately 70 participants on the project’s progress in tackling waste crime. 

Other workshops on the opening day addressed such topics as the new role of regions regarding waste management planning, bio-waste management, construction and demolition, plastics and the need to adapt sorting centres. The second day was dedicated to reporting on the previous day's workshops, followed by plenary sessions addressing the political and regulatory evolutions in global waste management (at the national and European levels) with contributions from French ministers and European experts.
