Why Attend This Workshop?

Waste Management is No Longer simply a Question of Cost

As the spectrum of hazardous waste widens and becomes more complex and new regulations are introduced to govern the treatment and disposal of hazardous waste, the Extractive industry as well as the Petrochemical sector in Africa will have to upgrade existing processes and look into the development of not only new capacity but also new options to recycle their waste. Today recycling, re-use and recovery of hazardous waste forms key operational strategy as companies assess new avenues to manage their hazardous waste.

Comprehensive and highly-interactive, Hazardous Waste Management Masterclass will provide an in-depth understanding of the principles underlining effective hazardous waste management from generation, to transport to treatment and finally disposal. Best-of-class waste management techniques will be disseminated and the current challenges faced will be debated. Learn about waste characterization and labeling, waste minimization and disposal options. Also covered are the most recent regulatory changes plus a global perspective of how hazardous waste is handled.
