Ladies and Gentlemen,

The 22th International Scientific Conference “Engineering for Environment Protection – TOP” will be a spe­cial occasion where experts on environmental issues can assess the progress in the protection of the environ­ment that has been achieved over the last two decades, and present new scientific findings and future trends in waste management.


The Conference is held under the auspices of:
