Agenda

The papers covered a wide variety of topics which were classified in the following sessions:

  • Hazardous waste
  • Reduce, recycle and recovery
  • Health care impact
  • Remote sensing
  • Energy from waste
  • Landfill optimisation and mining
  • Pre-treatment of MSW (municipal solid waste)
  • Industrial waste management
  • Wastewater

Researchers, educators, government officials, consultants, managers, community leaders and others with expertise in waste management and recycle are invited to submit papers for oral presentation or poster session at the Conference.

Hazardous wastes can take the form of solids , liquids, sludges, or contained gases, and they are generated primarily by chemical production, manufacturing, and other industrial activities. Industrial Liquid-waste management can cause substantial harm to human health and safety or to the environment. They may cause damage during inadequate storage, transportation, treatment, or disposal operations. Improper hazardous-waste storage or disposal frequently contaminates surface and groundwater supplies. People living in homes built near old and abandoned waste disposal sites may be in a particularly vulnerable position.
The objective of this course is to learn about the risks associated with industrial liquid waste and how to find remedy to existing problems and to prevent future harm from hazardous wastes.
