Participants and speakers of the IV Symposium of the Spanish Network of Life Cycle at the University of Cantabria.

Dr. Alba Bala, leader of the Waste Management Research Line of the UNESCO Chair in Life Cycle and Climate Change, participated in the first session about "Management of urban solid waste". The researcher presented the European project "LIFE + Zero Cabin Waste (ZCW)", focused on aircraft cabin waste management that provides a basis for creating a sustainable model to reduce, reuse and recycle (including energy recovery) this type of waste.

In particular, the project is based on four specific objectives: to achieve an adequate separation of the waste produced during the flight, to demonstrate that the waste can be treated in an environmentally respectful way,, to decrease the associated carbon footprint and, finally, to establish the bases for the future replication of the procedure through standard protocols.

In addition, the symposium had two more sessions devoted to the "Recovery of waste in the agri-food industry" and the "Application of the circular economy approach".
