Sustainability enters the correct management of wastes generated by agriculture and agroindustrial systems. Based on knowledge and technologies, the management will ensure food, feed, and fiber production of recognized environmental value and decision making in environmental, social and economic dimensions.

The Brazilian Society of Agricultural and Agroindustrial Waste Management (Sbera) has a pleasure to invite you to the VI International Symposium on Agricultural and Agroindustrial Waste Management - VI SIGERA to be held in Florianopolis, Santa Catarina State, Brazil, from the 07th to the 09th May 2019. In this edition the thematic of the Symposium will be Biotechnologie Applied to the Treatment and Reuse of Wastes.

The VI SIGERA will connect the reality of production with the environmental thematic contributing to sustainability of world agriculture. During the symposium will be presented and discussed the most relevant scientific topics involving wastes from agricultural, livestock and agroindustrial activities.

In the year 2019 the event completes a decade of history and is part of the agenda for researchers, students and professionals. It is the unique event on this topic in Latin America and one of the world largest that focuses on the management of agricultural and agroindustrial wastes.

Sigera will work scientific topics in an innovative format that involves short courses, thematic workshops, technical lectures and presentations of scientific papers. Participants will obtain knowledge and interaction with international scientific community, promoting their scientific updates and new partnerships.

With this symposium Sbera renews the pionerism and the systemic view of the interrelation of production and environment, contributing to the Nexus natural resources-food-nutrient, to the environmental safety of food and systems and to the well-being of societies.
