The Earth Engineering Center (EEC) of Columbia University in collaboration with WTERT-Greece / SYNERGIA and "Tamiz Shahar" JSC are organizing an interdisciplinary event that will focus on state of the art technologies for sustainable waste management, entitled "Waste to Energy as an Integral Part of Sustainable Waste Management Worldwide. The case of Baku city / Azerbaijan".
Dr. Efstratios Kalogirou, President of WTERT-Greece will lead this course and workshop with a team of experts in the field of waste management from prestigious international and national institutions, as well as professionals from the waste management industry, in cooperation with Columbia University Emeritus Professor Nikolaos J. Themelis, Director of the Earth Engineering Center. This is a challenge for professionals in related industries, working in the environment field throughout the region, for government agencies, companies planning and executing waste projects and researchers, university students, as well as anyone wishing to take advantage of their understanding in this field.
The Global WTERT Council, in collaboration with the Azerbaijan state corporation "Tamiz Shahar" JSC and the French company CNIM S.A., are organizing this one-week intensive course on cutting-edge technologies for sustainable waste management and their application in developing cities. The five-day workshop will focus on the technical aspects, environmental benefits, and economic viability of Waste-to-Energy, Anaerobic Digestion, Mechanical-Biological Treatment, and Sanitary Landfilling. On the fifth day of the workshop, the participants will have the opportunity to visit the state of the art Waste-to-Energy plant of Baku, constructed and operated by CNIM. The new WTE facility is designed to process thermally 500,000 tonnes of waste per annum, thus reducing the need for future landfilling while producing electricity.
The workshop is a unique opportunity for professionals and graduate students specializing in waste management. The workshop is also addressed to government agencies, companies planning and executing waste projects and researchers, university students, as well as anyone wishing to deepen their understanding in this field. Registrants will receive a certificate of continuing education by the Earth Engineering Center of Columbia University.
