Welcome to CPS 2020!

2020 International Conference on Cleaner Production and Sustainability (CPS 2020), October 30 to Nov 3, 2020, Knoxville, TN, U.S.

With the development of society and economy, sustainable development related to the future of mankind is concerned and interested by all segments of the international community increasingly. The primary prerequisite for sustainable development is to achieve cleaner production, realize a circular economy, and increase efficiencies in the uses of energy, water, resources, and human capital.

International Conference on Cleaner Production and Sustainability (CPS) is an important platform to discuss environmental and sustainability issues in corporations, governments, academic institutions, regions, and societies, share theoretical and practical solutions for cleaner production and circular economy, and engage stakeholders. Covering vast fields including circular economy and resource efficiency, cleaner production and advanced manufacturing, climate change and regional sustainability, and so on, the platform is committed to promoting interdisciplinary communication and hope to intensify the expertise of each discipline to advance cleaner production and sustainability.

International Conference on Cleaner Production and Sustainability is held annually. The first meeting was successfully held in Hongkong, China, 2019, attracting more than 270 submissions from 18 countries and regions. It was jointly sponsored by the department of civil and environmental engineering of the Hong Kong polytechnic university, the Tyndall center at Fudan university, the institute for safety and sustainable environment at the university of Tennessee, and Linkoping University, and supported by NSF and four international academic journals, including Journal of Cleaner Production, Resources, Conservation & Recycling, The Engineering Economist and Journal of Green Building.
