WasteSafe International Conferences
Wastes are normally solids, useless and unwanted. However, many of these materials can be reused, recycled and thus they can become a resource if managed and treated properly. Rapid growth of population, urbanization and industrialization poses sharp increase of waste generation and change of its nature. Due to organizational limitations, lack of people’s awareness, absence of appropriate management, financial & resource constraints, ineffectiveness of legislation and law enforcement, wastes remain unmanaged and posed threat to human and nature, especially in the developing countries. To address this issue, Khulna University of Engineering & Technology (KUET) has taken several initiatives since 2002. In this footstep, to exchange the views and experiences at both the national and international levels on the modern technologies and sustainability of solid waste management (SWM), WasteSafe 2009, WasteSafe 2011, WasteSafe 2013, and WasteSafe 2015 the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th International Conference on Solid Waste Management in Developing Countries were organized successfully at Khulna in 9-10 November 2009, 13-15 February 2011, 10-12 February 2013 and 15-17 February 2015 respectively. The success of the event encouraged the organizer to continue such activities and hence the WasteSafe 2017, the 5th International Conference on SWM in South Asia, is jointly organized at Khulna on 25~27 Feb. 2017 by
  • Khulna University of Engg. & Technology, Bangladesh
  • Bauhaus Universitat Weimer, Germany
