    About the Conference

    CSIR- NEERI is happy to announce the forthcoming two-days international conference on “Integrated Solid Waste Management Practices in Developing Countries”. The aim of this conference is to create awareness in the areas of solid waste management with involvement of expert, scientists, researchers, policy makers, consultant, technologists and service providers working in this domain.

    In India, the solid waste is disposed off by open dumping posing environmental threat and health hazards. Moreover, most of the dumping sites are saturated and therefore it will be inevitable to search for appropriate technological options which are sustainable for its proper management. The Waste-to-Energy plant can be a solution for this growing problem for metropolitan cities. In India, the waste is processed without segregation, due to which most of the recyclable materials goes to dumping site, which adversely affects the recyclable material market. The new Solid Waste Rule 2016 provides segregation of waste at source and implementation of waste to energy project. This conference will bring a new platform for discussion related to various issues of waste management among the experts, entrepreneurs, technology developers and waste managers of the Urban Local Bodies, researchers and academicians and will certainly have coverage on best suited and viable option for municipal solid waste management (MSWM).
