Waste Management Asia conference to be held in Kuala Lumpur

The Asian Development Bank revealed astounding facts about waste management in Asia. With over 50% of the world’s population predicted to be living in the Asia Pacific region by 2050, only about 10% of solid waste ends up in properly engineered and managed landfill sites. Moreover, most Asian towns and cities use open dumps. Such numbers hint at the inadequacy of existing waste management practices in many Asian countries.

Covering important issues like segregation, government policies and 5Rs of waste management for municipal and industrial waste, the Waste Management Asia 2016 conference is set to take place on the 27th & 28th of January 2016 at the Intercontinental Hotel, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

“This will be a brilliant platform for waste management stakeholders in Asia where experts will share their experiences through individual presentations and participants will get acquainted with best practices to adopt. We have the government sector represented from Malaysia, Vietnam, Bahrain and the Philippines and over 5 industries covered at the event”, shared the conference producer Ms. Reema Punia.

Waste Management Asia 2016 enjoys the support of its 18 partners including the lead sponsor ECONORD Ltd., the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment (NRE) Malaysia, Greentech Malaysia, Malaysian Green Building Confederation (MGBC) and the Singapore Environment Council (SEC). The event also provides Continuous Professional Development (CPD) points for its participants with 12 CPD hours from the Institut Alam Sekitar Malaysia (EiMAS) Malaysia and Chartered Institute of Wastes Management (CIWM) UK respectively.

The event is also HRDF Claimable and will showcase practical solutions that can be adopted by public and private entities. For instance, the event’s gold sponsor ECONORD which leads the way in the automatic electric bin lift market in Europe, will be showcasing their products at the event.
