The conference provides a forum for the exchange of scientific information and work on the current situation of waste management amongst professionals, researchers, government departments and local authorities. Waste Management is one of the key problems of modern society due to the ever expanding volume and complexity of discarded domestic and industrial waste. Society is increasingly aware of the need to establish better practices and safer solutions for waste disposal. This requires further investigation into disposal methods and recycling as well as new technologies to monitor landfills, industrial mining wastes and chemical and nuclear repositories.
A major cause of concern is the implications of waste management on health and the environment. The conference discusses some of these topics and the need to arrive at suitable strategies to waste management.
Further steps are required towards improvement of current technologies, increased collaboration between the public, government and private sectors and increased involvement of all stakeholders.
The following list covers some of the topics to be presented at the conference. Papers on other topics related to the objectives of the meeting are also welcome.
