The field of “green technology” encompasses a continuously evolving group of methods and materials, from techniques for generating energy, non-toxic cleaning products to reduce consumption of natural resources.
Green Technology in waste management refers to technology or know-how which practice the 4Rs (Reuse, Reduce, Recover and Recycle). The new concept of waste management is Cradle-to-Cradle, not cradle-to-grave. A waste to one person can be a raw material to another person.
This training will introduce the best sustainability practices and available technology in managing scheduled waste management. Learning from others’ successful experience and inspire the idea of how to introduce the practices and technology to your organization.
The course design is based on the 3 elements of green technology :
1. Sustainability – meeting the needs of society in ways that can continue the future without damaging or depleting natural resources.
2. “Cradle to cradle” design – ending the “cradle to grave” cycle of manufactured products, by creating products that can be fully reclaimed or re-used.
3. Source reduction – reducing waste and pollution by changing patterns of production and consumption. The information covers different area of industries and the case studies are from developed countries like Germany, USA, France, etc. After this course you will gain knowledge on sustainability practices and also the best available latest technology to manage scheduled waste.
