The theme of the conference will be ‘Implementing the Waste Hierarchy. This premier showcase of best practice African waste management solutions will take place at Emperor’s Palace in Johannesburg, South Africa. Waste management in South Africa is guided by the internationally accepted waste management hierarchy, which is implemented through the National Environmental Management: Waste Act, 2008.

During the plenary session on 16 October 2018,Ad Lansink will held the keynote adress about his new book’ Challenging Changes – Connecting Waste Hierarchy and Circular Economy. The aim of the waste management hierarchy is to extract the maximum practical benefits from products and to generate the minimum amount of waste. The proper application of the waste hierarchy can have several benefits, it can help prevent emissions of greenhouse gases, reduces pollutants, save energy, conserves resources, create jobs and stimulate the development of green technologies.

During the conference and the exhibition, Ad Lansink will be present to speak informally with delegates. Furthermore, signed copies of Challenging Changes will be available for delegates, who are interested in the implementation of the waste hierarchy and the transition to circular economy.
