Forging partnerships for a sustainable future


PSHWM | CE-WM 2019 aims to encourage regional and international communication, collaboration and networking to advance knowledge and promote values, attitudes, commitment, and skills needed to address emerging issue on waste management and protection of the environment. It also hopes to strengthen the link between collaborative projects and applied researches to support and address the industry needs.


Specifically, to bring together Researchers, Scientists, Academe, Local Government Units (LGUs), Professionals with interest in the environment, industry, and civil society to disseminate research results, new ideas, and practical experiences in waste management, as well as, facilitate an open and constructive dialogue between multi-sector stakeholders towardsresolving waste problems.


PSHWM | CE-WM 2019 focuses mainly on recent solid and hazardous waste technologies, on going projects and innovative solutions particularly on valorization prospects, and products from wastes such as biofuels, composts, waste-to-energy, amogn others. Special attention will be given on upcycled materials, marine litter, and teh circular economy strategy applications on solid and hazardous waste management.


Why collaborate with CE-WM?


Managing waste properly requires multi-disciplinary approaches and remains a challenge for developing countries and cities. A circular economy framework has been identified as a key to effective waste management requiring collaborative effortsin all sectors of the society.The United Nation's Agenda 2030 supports this framework because of its regenerative design in eliminating wastes while conserving resources and reducing environmental pollution.


Waste management spansmultiple areas, from responsible resource consumption to environmental sustainability.The collaboration of scientific communities, industry, regulators, and other stakeholders in the 1st International Conference on Circular Economy-based Waste Management is highly relevant to meet the 2030 United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals, and the Philippines' AmBisyon Natin 2040.   


Every contribution and commitment toward sa sustainable waste management count.
