Sustainable Solid Waste Management in Hong Kong - 17th June 2015

Hong Kong is facing a waste management crisis with the three existing strategic landfills to be filled up within the next couples of years. Recent debates in the Legislative Council on the extension of landfills and construction of incinerator have stimulated new interest in the solid waste management problems of Hong Kong.

Currently, the government is pushing forward a series of initiatives to tackle these issues ranging from enhancing reduction and separation of waste at sources; strengthening waste management policies; developing more waste management infrastructures and heightening public awareness and participation on waste reduction and separation.

This one-day continuing professional development (CPD) course is designed for decision-makers in government and private sector, planners, developers, engineering practitioners and green groups to acquire up-to-date details on the pressing issues related to solid waste management in Hong Kong and potential solutions to these problems. Essential topics covered include current action taken by the government to tackle the solid waste crisis; latest waste management technologies and infrastructures and best practices for management of different types of wastes.  The presentation will be supplemented by local and overseas case studies.
