Novel business models are being tested that challenge the linear economy as the scale of the economic and jobs opportunity of the circular economy become clear. The contributions this changes can make to climate change mitigation, and volatility in commodity prices have added impetus to the need for innovative thinking.
Despite the risks of continuous raw material supply, much of the material streams still have a linear life path. At the same time, national environmental policies strive to reduce landfill and landfill gas emissions are being overtaken by demands to rethink industrial processes.
Moreover, there is a global surge in secondary raw materials seeking markets. New patterns of global trade have emerged for recovered paper, plastics, textiles and waste derived fuels despite strongly fluctuating commodity prices.
The usual operation of businesses have to be changed and investment in new treatment technologies has to be secured as well. The Task Force has worked hard for over a year to prepare a study looking into the current trends and a series of reports to help the waste industry to analyse and respond to the unprecedented pressures of the Circular Economy on the waste management industry.
Members of the Task Force on Resource Management: We also recommend to take 2. More than participants attended the conference.
The Vice Mayor of Suzhou, Mr. Xiao Jiabao, made opening remarks. This two-day conference included 18 presentations and 3 panel discussion sessions. Other five ISWA experts gave presentations on various thematic topics ranging from MSW source separation and public participation, energy recovery and pollution control; these experts are: ISWA also invited Mr.
Arthur Wellinger, the ex-President of the European Biogas Association, a long-standing biogas projects expert in Europe as well as in lower-income countries.
After the opening of the Conference presentations by the introduction of the Global Waste Management Outlook by Mr Surendra Shrestha, the newly launched landmark publication by UNEP and ISWA, various issues in solid waste management were discussed, particularly on the development and perspectives of the sector in China and globally, municipal solid waste source separation and public participation, municipal solid waste energy recovery and pollution control, each being the thematic topic of a session.
After each session, a panel discussion took place which successfully provoked the presenters to debate and engaged the audience to ask questions and express opinions. CAUES and the audience, most coming from the sector representing waste management companies and policy makers at different levels, expressed a high appreciation of this Conference and the will for continued cooperation in knowledge exchange.
The Conference was followed by the annual exhibition of CAUES, which staged over exhibitors which are prominent industry players in the sector in China.

One of the participants at this conference, Prof. Thank you for this positive feedback, Arne! A successful implementation requires appropriate collection schemes as well as sorting and treatment techniques aimed at providing secondary resources of a quality comparable to that of primary raw materials.
The interaction between waste contractors, equipment providers and actors requiring secondary raw materials is very important in order to develop appropriate procedures and technology. Technologies and processes to deal with End-Of-Life vehicles presented by experts from industry showed that very high compulsory recycling rates can be achieved for this specific waste stream but however problems exist regarding the procedures valued as recycling.
Questionable practices accepted as recycling pose an obstacle to high value recycling. Kuchta TU Hamburg-Harburg in the automotive industry it is not anymore that the compulsory recycling rates drive innovation but a general design for recycling approach is now driving the recyclability.Finding a deal there is a rarity now.
I wonder if it’s a marketing ploy though. Bump up prices, have more “special” days (50% off, seniors, members days etc), then sell it for what it is worth on those special days.
Abstract. The advent of agriculture has ushered in an unprecedented increase in the human population and their domesticated animals. Farming catalyzed our transformation from primitive hunter-gatherers to sophisticated urban dwellers in just 10, years.
Although India is one of the less urbanized countries of the world with only per cent of her population living in urban agglomerations/towns, this country is facing a . Disposable Pens Are No Small Problem.
According to the EPA, Americans throw away billion disposable pens every year. Add the rest of the world, multiply by over 50 years of writing with disposable pens, and that’s a lot of metal and plastic waste ending up in landfill!
