We are pleased to announce that a delicated talk entitled Plastic Waste Forecasting and Potential Application in Renewable Energy System and Building for Environmental Footprint Mitigation was delivered by Fan, Y.V., Lee, C.T., Klemeš, J.J., Ocłoń, P. on The 9th International Conference on Sustainable Solid Waste Management from 15th to 18th June 2022 at Corfu, Greece.
Lectures and discussions with experts are associated with one of the project goals of RESHeat, which is “economic efficiency assessment, life cycle analysis and environmental impact assessment of RESHeat systems”. The sustainability of RESHeat systems could be further enhanced by tackling end-of-life management instead of limiting at the production and utilisation stages. The potential recovery or recycling pathway of solar panels, the LCA accounting method, and the potential integration such as solar thermal power for supporting the recycling process (e.g. pyrolysis) are explored in the conference.
