International Conference on Cascade Use and Circular Economy
Welcome to the official website of the 2018 first International Conference on Cascade Use and Circular Economy. The conference will be held in the Northwestern part of Germany: in Oldenburg.
ICCCE is hosted by the Carl von Ossietzky University Oldenburg by the Cascade Use research group. We are happy to announce our two co-hosts: Shanghai Jiao Tong University and the automotive network AARTI from China.
Therefore, we bring together researchers from all over the world to discuss topics around Circular Economy with a technical focus.
Date: 24. & 25. September 2018
Location: Carl von Ossietzky University, Oldenburg, Germany - EWE Forum | Alte Fleiwa
The goal within the Circular Economy addresses clearly the cascading approach. By reusing and recycling materials and products we keep secondary resources in the loop and primary reserves are saved. The International Conference Cascade-Use and Circular Economy is inviting researchers and industry partners to discuss major challenges and chances within the recycling/reuse loop around the mobility and/or the WEEE industry. We are seeking not only technical approaches but also economical and logistical topics.
Cascade Use attracts researchers, scientists and technologists from companies, universities, research firms and government agencies from around the world.
Join us for Cascade Use 2018, the unique forum for reporting technological breakthroughs in the areas of cascading materials and products in the area of Automotives, Electronics, Computing, and Resource Criticality in General.
The Program is still preliminary and will be updated regularly.
