Following on to the Success of last two Editions of GCC Waste Management Forum, IMNBI has continue supporting GCC Waste Management, under the theme of Innovative Solutions for Sustainable Waste Management Through Science and Technology.

Waste management is an important part of the urban infrastructure as it ensures the protection of the environment and of human health. It is now one of the major global environmental challenges being faced equally by all developed & developing countries. Waste management is something that should be a joint effort between government, industries and citizens. Our planet suffered tremendous damage after the industrial revolution when people mass-produced and then mass dumped products.

The social and economic development of a GCC Region caused an increase in pressures on its environment and increases the need for a reduction in environmentally damaging activities. Some of these damaging activities involve the production and disposal of waste. The more waste we produce, the more we have to dispose, either by recycling and re-using, burial (landfill) or burning (incineration). The production of consumables in the first place, and their disposal when used uses up valuable natural resources and energy, processes which can impact upon the environment and in particular the atmosphere through pollution. Sustainable waste management encourages the generation of less waste, the re-use of consumables, and the recycling and recovery of waste that is produced.

Middle Eastern countries are counted among the world’s largest waste producers. Population growth and urbanization have made a significant contribution to the exponential increase in the generation of waste. At the 3rd GCC waste management & recycling Forum, key industry stake holders would gather to discuss and share on the key factors associated with waste identification, handling, storage and disposal. With the top industry experts sharing on the innovative methods used in the industry for the reduction, reuse and recycle of waste.

Solid waste management practices can differ for residential and industrial producers, for urban and rural areas, and for developed and developing nations. The administration of non-hazardous waste in metropolitan areas is the job of local government authorities.
