COURSE OVERVIEW

Increasing urbanisation & industrialisation leads to overproduction of waste, which is causing negative impacts on our environment. Raw Materials sources are shrinking and energy becoming more expensive around the world. Air, soil and water pollution stands at high risk for sustainable development. Waste management is closely associated counter these issues and traditional waste management system has failed to address these issues. Waste reduction and valorisation need to be taken to the next level with a sustainable waste management solution to protect the environment and sustain the world for future generations.

This Waste Management & Sustainability training covers the modern practice of collecting, transporting, processing or disposing of various waste materials. The participant will learn the techniques to manage the waste more sustainably and cost-effectively to protect the environment and leverage the profit. With this Waste Management & Sustainability training, participants will gain knowledge in exploring opportunities in waste prevention, re-use and recycling.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

At the end of this Waste Management & Sustainability training course, delegates will be able to:

  • Gain Knowledge in sustainable waste & environmental management system
  • Understand different types of waste, their handling, storage, disposal requirements and their potential effect on the environment.
  • Understand and apply the waste management hierarchy for sustainable development
  • Insight on roles of various personals in Contamination and Pollution Prevention
  • Understand modern waste disposal & treatment methods
  • Identification of waste minimization and recycling
  • A better understanding of the environmental impact of waste
  • Identification of the cost-effectiveness of managing waste efficiently
  • Gain insight into new recycling technologies & circular economy
  • Identification of legislation and ensuring compliance waste regulations
  • Improve systems thinking skills for global and regional waste management sustainability
