Deposition of waste results in severe land, water and air pollution causing tremendous negative impacts not only for human beings but also for floral and faunal diversity in ecosystems.
Recovering from Loss
The development of sustainable waste management strategies has become a major concern throughout the world. Thus, this program focuses on “recycling” and “recovery” of waste material while paving the way towards circular economy, land reclamation, and water and wastewater treatments.
The APRU Sustainable Waste Management Program hosted by the Korea University offers a timely opportunity for knowledge exchange among professionals from all over the world to assist the formulation of an efficient sustainable management agenda for biological waste and remediation of soil, water and air in the local context, which satisfies the environmental compatibility, financial feasibility and social needs. It will deliberate on state-of-the-art treatment technologies, advanced management strategies, and political issues pertaining to recycling and recovery of organic waste.
Moreover, local and overseas experts from different sectors including academic researchers, industrial practitioners, green groups, and government departments will be gathered in this program to solicit scientific and technical inputs as well as political feedback, facilitating the development of integrated solutions. Experienced industrial practitioners, professional organizations, green groups, as well as government officers are invited to the conference.
