Mining the Technosphere "Potentials and Challenges, Drivers and Barriers


International Workshop

October 1 – 2, 2015
TU Vienna, Kuppelsaal



Besides the exploitation of natural deposits and the continuous promotion of resource efficiency, concepts such as urban mining and landfill mining have been increasingly proposed as suitable means to secure current and future resource supply. To what extent these concepts can actually contribute to covering our future resource consumption and which challenges are to be tackled in this regard are subject of the International Workshop “Mining the Technosphere”, which will be hosted at Vienna University of Technology from October 1 - 2, 2015. Leading experts from more than 10 countries will present and discuss their latest research in an informal setting.
