10. cycletalk - Focus: Technologies and processes

May 28, 2024

Züri-Campus, Hagenholzstrasse 85A, 8050 Zurich

Maintaining the value of products and materials: existing and innovative treatment processes and processing technologies

Maintaining the value of products and materials is a key aspect of a sustainable circular economy. Innovative and needs-based treatment processes and processing methods help to ensure this value retention. Examples of such processes include the use of technical processes with artificial intelligence (AI) or optimized washing processes to close the loop through multiple applications.

At our 10th cycletalk, various aspects of this practical and exciting world of technological innovation will be presented. We will explore the topic in greater depth in joint discussion rounds.

The subsequent aperitif will allow for a personal exchange with the experts and provide an opportunity for general networking.
