Sardinia 2015. 15th International Waste Management and Landfill Symposium - From 5th to 9th October 2015

Forte Village Resort - S. Margherita di Pula, Cagliari, Italy
Following the great success of the fourteenth edition held in 2013, which saw the participation of
more than 700 delegates from a wide variety of countries worldwide, Sardinia 2015 promises to be
the largest event of the year in the field of Waste Management and Landfilling.
Organised by the International Waste Working Group (IWWG) with the scientific support of
University of Padova (IT), Tongji University (CN), Technological University of Denmark (DE),
Fukuoka University (JP), University of Central Florida (US), Hamburg University of Technology
(DE), the 2015 edition of the conference will be held in the traditional venue of the Forte Village
Resort at S. Margherita di Pula (Cagliari, Italy), from 5th to 9th October, and is
expected to register the participation of up to 1000 delegates from dozens of different countries
worldwide. In line with tradition, the 15th edition of the conference will focus on advances in the
field of Waste Management science and technologies, presenting case studies and discussing key
controversial subjects, sharing experiences from different countries, and assesing social and
economical balances.
The Symposium will include general oral presentations, specialized sessions and specialist
workshops for a total of eight parallel tracks, poster sessions and a number of parallel events.
The following topics, among others, will be extensively discussed:
Waste policy and legislation - Waste management strategies - Public concern and education -
Waste management assessment and decision tools - Waste characterization - Waste collection -
Waste minimization and recycling - Biological treatment - Thermal treatment - Mechanical biological
treatment prior to landfilling - Sanitary landfilling - Integrated wastewater and solid waste
management - Waste management and climate change - Waste management in developing and low
income countries.
Organizations, associations and companies are traditionally welcome to have their internal meetings
during the event, with the support of the Symposium Secretariat.
The Sardinia Symposia were established in 1987 and rapidly became the Reference Forum in the
field of Waste Management for the international community, where state of the art concepts,
strategies and technologies are presented and experiences shared by leading scientists,
administrators and practitioners. The Symposia favoured the development of innovation in the
field: all new ideas and approaches applied worldwide in the last two decades were thoroughly
debated and reviewed during the numerous workshop sessions in the Symposia, some of them
purposely organized in cooperation with IWWG Task Groups.

O sferă microscopică din metal, care conţine ADN, a fost descoperită în atmosfera înaltă a Terrei

Cercetătorii britanici au descoperit o sferă metalică microscopică în atmosfera înaltă a Terrei, informează slate.fr. Sfera microscopică conţine ADN şi ar fi putut aduce viaţă pe planeta noastră.

“O bilă cu diametrul unui fir de păr uman, care are filamente la exterior şi material biologic în centrul ei”. Aşa o descrie profesorul Milton Wainwright, coordonatorul echipei britanice care a descoperit sfera metalică. Am fost foarte uimiţi când analiza cu raze X ne-a arătat că sfera este făcută în principal din titan, cu câteva urme de vanadiu”, a mai spus cercetătorul britanic.

Sfera microscopică din metal a expulzat şi o substanţă biologică, iar momentul a fost fotografiat. Cercetătorii britanici au afirmat că substanţa ar putea fi, de fapt, material genetic. “Teoria panspermiei” explică existenţa sferei şi face referire la faptul că aceasta are origine extraterestră.
