Latest developments in waste management

From the 15th to the 18th November 2010 the City of Hamburg will host the ISWA World Congress 2010 on Urban Development and Sustainability.

It is a unique possibility to participate in an international forum where outstanding experts will present and discuss the different aspects of a sustainable development in our urbanized world. In several parallel sessions the participants have the opportunity to hear about the latest developments not only in waste management, but on all aspects related to urban development.

From technical innovations in the handling and treatment of the different fractions of waste to urban mining and the social aspects of waste generation. There will be the opportunity to visit different waste treatment plants (from sorting facilities to energy production) located in or near Hamburg.

ISWA World Congress 2010 will host two sessions on international topics under the auspices of the German Federal Ministry for the Environment and the Export Initiative Recycling and Technologies.
