Image default
The Institute of Waste Management of Southern Africa (IWMSA) has invited all waste management industry bodies to submit their abstracts in order to gain an opportunity to showcase their products / services at WasteCon 2018.

Abstracts should discuss strategies towards implementing the waste management hierarchy. The hierarchy ranks options of waste management in order of preference according to the type of waste, and is the theme for the IWMSA’s upcoming flagship conference and exhibition.

“The aim of the waste management hierarchy is to extract the maximum practical benefits from products while generating the minimum amount of waste. The proper application of the waste hierarchy has several benefits: preventing the emission of greenhouse gases, reducing pollutants, saving energy, conserving resources, creating jobs, and stimulating the development of green technology,” says Jan Palm, president of the IWMSA.

“WasteCon 2018 provides a platform for key role players in the industry to discuss best practice and innovations for implementing the waste management hierarchy.”

The conference will take place over a period of three days; plenary sessions, presentations and parallel workshops will be conducted by the leaders in the respective fields providing an overview as well as an in-depth description of the developments, research, innovations and technologies.

Abstracts must be submitted online by Friday, 2 March. Applicants will be contacted regarding their application by Friday, 4 May.

WasteCon 2018 will take place from 15 to 19 October at Emperor’s Palace, Johannesburg. For more information, go to www.wastecon.co.za.
