International Recycling and Recovery Congress — Waste to Energy

18.  + 19. September  2023


The Congress

The IRRC connects experts from countries that are highly advanced in waste management with experts from those countries that have already reached the first milestones of organised waste collection and recovery or are striving to do so.

This year we will focus on CO2 capture and storage/utilisation, energy supply, Circular Economy and the different thermal treatment procedures for example. Additionally, the country reports will be pursued, in which the waste management situation of annually changing countries is reported on. The conference offers a variety of opportunities for the international exchange of knowledge and experience. We further want to improve the possibilities for networking by adding a scheduled poster session and recruiting aspects.

Public Transport

The well-developed network of the Wiener Linien brings you safely to your destination at any time.

We recommend using the public transport of the city.
The University of Technology is located in the heart
of Vienna. It is, therefore, very easy to reach by
public transport. The stations of the underground U1 and U4 (station Karlsplatz), U2 (station Museumsquartier), U3 (station Volkstheater), are the ones closest to the congress venue., adn
