Topics on the program under the scientific leadership of Professor Martin Kranert, Managing Director of the Institute for Sanitary Engineering, Water Quality and Solid Waste Management at the University of Stuttgart, are for example the use of organic waste compost in organic farming, foreign matter in composts and fermentation products as well as new aspects of high quality recycling with examples from practice. A welcoming address by the Ministry of the Environment, Climate Protection and Energy Sector Baden-Württemberg will be given by Minister Franz Untersteller, Member of the State Parliament (13th June 9.15 am) and State Secretary Dr. Andre Baumann (12th June 4.30 pm).
