R4R presented during the Solid Waste World Congress 2014, organized by the International Solid Waste Agency (ISWA), Sao Paulo, 08 – 11.09.14
On 9 September the EU Interreg IVC project ‘Regions for Recycling’ (R4R) was presented by the Public Waste Agency of Flanders (OVAM) during the Solid Waste World Congress 2014, organized by the International Solid Waste Agency (ISWA) in Sao Paulo.
OVAM is co-leader of the R4R project and is responsible for the technical component of the project. OVAM submitted in April an abstract about this project and was selected to present the R4R project at the World Congress. The project was presented in the session about ‘Waste data and Information Systems’. In this session also the Waste Atlas was presented. A general conclusion was that there is high demand for waste data harmonization in order to make data and as a consequence recycling results, more comparable.
Almost 1000 waste experts from 64 different countries attended this Congress.
The next ISWA World congress will be organized by the city of Antwerp,
Belgium, with the support of OVAM from 7 to 9 September 2015.
A call for abstracts is already open. You will find more information on www.iswa2015.org.
