What's new This Year
Environmental and economic implications have compelled proper eco-friendly disposal of modern day wastes and also made it essential to come up with alternative waste management practices that reduce the environmental burden resulting from unwise waste disposal habits. Increasingly vigilant environmental regulators are imposing austere regulations for waste treatment prior to discharge coupled with escalation in the costs for direct disposal present two interrelated problems such as traditional practice of disposing waste loaded with pollutants need to be either discontinued or upgraded and incremental improvement in the waste management technologies, which has always been a game of playing catch-up with the regulations, have inflated infrastructure requirement and treatment cost significantly. Therefore, rather than continuing slow evolution, adaptation of a leapfrogging strategy could be more effective. Although a great deal of research in carried out in various academic and research institutions, their practical applications is rather slow. Additionally, proliferating global population coupled with high demand of commodities are depleting the natural resources in an alarming rate.
Therefore, there is an urgent need not only to develop suitable waste disposal strategy but also to augment the waste recycling technologies for resource recovery in a circular economy model. International Conference on Promoting Environmental Technologies for Waste Management and Sustainable Development (WMSD-2021) aims to bring together leading academicians, scientists, researchers, industry experts and policy makers to exchange and share their experiences and on various aspects of Waste Management and Sustainable Development. It also provides a premier interdisciplinary platform for researchers, practitioners and educators to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, and concerns as well as practical challenges encountered and solutions adopted in the fields of waste management and resource recycling. Selected papers presented in the conference will be published in journals published by NESA or other suitable publishing houses. The conference will feature renowned speakers representing both academia and industry who are renowned experts in various thematic areas. Conference will include a start-up track session, providing opportunity to innovators to showcase new technologies.
The Conference aims to focus on sustainable development and emerging issues in waste management. The generation of solid waste has grown manifold and the current pandemic has aggravated the situation to great extent. It is not possible to meet the objectives of Sustainable Development without addressing the concerns raised by improper waste disposal. In view of this, the conference aims to set up a dialogue for sustainable development through effective waste management.
