Innovative Machines, Technologies, and Materials in Circular Economy Environment
The conference UNIVNET 2022 – Innovative Machines, Technologies, and Materials in Circular Economy Environment, which is taking place on 26. 9. – 28. 9. 2022 in Brno, Golf Resort Kaskáda, Czech Republic, is intended for all experts dealing with environmental, technological, economic and legislative aspects of environmental protection. The main focus of the UNIVNET 2022 conference will be innovative devices and technologies in the circular economy.
This 11th edition of the international conference follows on from previous successful editions organized by the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering of the Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava and the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering of the Technical University in Košice.
Active participation is possible in the form of scientific and professional lectures, presentation of companies in the form of a lecture, exhibition of exhibits or products.

The university and industrial research and education platform of the recycling company (UNIVNET) consists of five universities and the Association of the Automotive Industry of the Slovak Republic. It focuses on new technologies and techniques of effective waste recovery, especially in the automotive industry, with the aim of minimizing negative impacts on the environment and saving primary energy and raw material resources.
New UNIVNET publication, fourth in a row – Smart technologies for waste processing from the automotive industry, Scientific Monograph of UNIVNET 2021, Bratislava, July 2022
Dear readers, waste management specialists and students, This is another issue in the series of books prepared by the UNIVNET association – University and Industrial Research and Education Platform of the Recycling Society. The publication sums up the results of activities related to the assessment of state, waste generation forecasting and development of new technologies for material and energy recovery of the selected types of waste from the automotive industry in 2021. The UNIVNET association was established upon an agreement between the Ministry of Education, Science, Research and Sport and the leader of the association – Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava (STU BA). In addition to STU BA, the association includes four other universities and the Automotive Industry Association of the Slovak Republic (ZAP SR)…
In the near future, UNIVNET members are planning to address the needs of waste treatment from the automotive industry, taking into account the Waste Management Programme of the Slovak Republic for 2021 – 2025, the problem of the lack of data on waste capacity, and specific solutions for waste treatment, such as a solution for laminated glass, the recycling of lithium-ion batteries from end-of-life electric vehicles, the development of products with sound and heat insulation and other properties based on waste, the recycling of plastics from the automotive industry into new composite materials from research through to market take-up, the construction of a pyrolysis reactor and its optimisation.
In the field of battery waste, the priority is to work on the material composition of individual batteries, which vary considerably, and to try to provide recyclers with a sort of homogeneous sample for the development of a unified treatment process.
From the beginning of 2022, UNIVNET intensified its focus on moving from theoretical studies and initial experiments to the implementation of solutions in collaboration with the industry. The involvement of specific partners from the industry is intended to help move the research teams towards achieving concrete outputs, concrete products, technology or solution designs, through production to sales.
