Science is the main factor in promoting and guiding the human progress. Journals play a fundamental role in validation, diffusion and recording of the scientific results. But in order to be useful Science should part of a network shaped as a triangle. One of the triangle vertices is Science, being the other two Society and Industry. Society (culture, policy, administration, welfare, psicology, wealthcare, etc.) stimulates the scientific activities and receives benefits from it. Industry (Technologies, Economy, Occupation, etc.) and entrepreneurship in general, is committed to support and apply the scientific knowledge, bringing it in the real world.
To this triangle the attention of this new Journal is addressed, focusing on all aspects dealing with waste resources management and engineering and carefully considering the responsible and sustainable material loop closing for residues.
The name Detritus is functional to the journal character as it is multidisciplinary and refers to a residue which can become a resource (like sand, gravel or organic debris!).
