Nature Conference - waste management and sustainability

On 26 October 2021, Veena will be delivering a keynote address to the international Nature Conference - Waste Management and Valorisation for a Sustainable Future.

Presented by Korea University, APRU Sustainable Waste Management, and Nature group of conferences and journals Nature Electronics, Nature Nanotechnology, and Nature Sustainability, the conference brings together subject leaders from around the world in the lead up to the COP26 Global Conference of world and industry leaders in Scotland.

Veena will join Session II: Micro(nano)plastics in the Environments, and talk about the importance of aligning recycling and manufacturing capability to tackle our global waste challenges, highlighting some of her UNSW SMaRT Centre technologies and innovations that create sustainable materials and products from waste sources.

Event organisers say:

The development of sustainable waste management strategies has become a major concern throughout the world. Thus, this program focuses on “recycling” and “recovery” of waste material while paving the way towards circular economy, land reclamation, and water and wastewater treatments.    

This program will offer a timely opportunity for knowledge exchange among professionals from all over the world to assist the formulation of an efficient sustainable management agenda for biological waste and remediation of soil, water and air in the local context, which satisfies the environmental compatibility, financial feasibility and social needs. It will deliberate on state-of-the-art treatment technologies, advanced management strategies, and political issues pertaining to recycling and recovery of organic waste.

Moreover, local and overseas experts from different sectors including academic researchers, industrial practitioners, green groups, and government departments will be gathered in this program to solicit scientific and technical inputs as well as political feedback, facilitating the development of integrated solutions. Experienced industrial practitioners, professional organizations, green groups, as well as government officers are invited to the conference.
