The Chair of The 5th IWWG-ARB
The 5th Symposium of International Waste Working Group – Asian Regional Branch (IWWG-ARB) will be held in Mercure Hotel, Nusa Dua, Bali, Indonesia, starting from 6th to 8th March 2023.
The objective of the IWWG is to provide an educational forum to encourage and support economic and ecological (sustainable and integrated) waste management world-wide and to promote scientific advancement in the field.
This purpose will be accomplished by learning from the past, analysing the present, and thereby developing new ideas, scenarios and visions for the future. The vast amount of experience gained on a world-wide basis in the field so far, which is rather dispersive, and consequently not focused enough to influence legislation, education, or provide practical applications and move towards a more rational development of appropriate technologies, will be placed at your disposal.
With this aim, the IWWG was conceived as a think based on scientific principles but essentially application oriented. In addition, the IWWG has a light, non-bureaucratic organisation which allows us to focus on a variety of subjects, react promptly to relevant problems in the field of solid waste management, and communicate effectively within the professional community.
For Bandung Institute of Technology, it is an honor to be the host of the 5th Symposium of International Waste Working Group – Asian Regional Branch (IWWG-ARB) in Bali, Indonesia. Hence, we would like to invite you, all the researchers in Asia, especially the experts in waste management, to send your research abstracts and participate in the 5th Symposium of International Waste Working Group – Asian Regional Branch (IWWG-ARB).
Best wishes and I hope to see you in Bali, Indonesia.
