Session 1: Solid waste management
Solid waste includes all waste from sources such as households, businesses, municipalities, medical facilities, and so forth. To collect, store, move, treat, and dispose of wastes safely and without hurting the environment or other living forms, solid waste management refers to the best practices in this area. In general, incorrect garbage disposal has a lot of detrimental repercussions on the ecosystem. Solid waste management techniques include landfills, incineration, composting, recovering, recycling, and reusing.

Session 2: Waste water management
Water treatment is removing all contaminants and boosts the water's quality so that it may be used effectively. Among the waste waters that are treated and recycled are domestic sewage, storm sewage, and industrial sewage. Several biological techniques, including filters, activated sludge, and aerated lagoons, are used to treat wastewater in addition to chemical and physical water treatments. The stages of water purification are primary, secondary, and tertiary. The treated water can also be utilized for irrigation, cleaning, sustaining river flow, industrial supply, and drinking. The management procedure will help to safeguard and maintain the quality of freshwater and ocean waters.

Session 3: Clinical waste management
Hospitals are major producers of hazardous waste with a high level of risk. If clinical waste management is not done correctly, it could lead to severe diseases, serious health problems, and worsened environmental repercussions. Hospital or biomedical waste includes infectious organisms, wasted needles, human organs, tissues, expired medications, surgical waste, poisonous chemicals, and radioactive materials.

Session 4: Dump yards
A dump yard is a thoughtfully constructed way to get rid of solid waste on or on the land. Dump yards come in three primary categories: one for industrial trash, and one for hazardous garbage. Methane gas, which is hazardous to those who live nearby, is released as a result of the decomposition of the items in these dump yards. As a result, dump yards are often constructed away from populated areas. To stop garbage from leaking into the groundwater, sanitary dump yards have layers of sand and plastic covering the ground. After that, the garbage is dumped, stacked, and covered with soil, gravel, clay, and soil. The trash is allowed to decay here in a sealed pit without contaminating the neighboring bodies of water. 

Session 5: Bio remediation 
For the treatment of polluted surfaces like soil, oceans, and underground water, a method known as bioremediation employs microorganisms that degrade the target contaminants. These microorganisms either produce the enzymes necessary to degrade the dangerous pollutants or feed on them. Bioremediation, which uses naturally occurring environmental bacteria to eliminate toxins without the need for chemicals, is one of the safest techniques. Bioremediation can be used to treat contaminated underground water, clean up oil spills, and contaminated soil, and clean up crime scenes.

Session 6: Environmental pollution
Human actions that have a detrimental effect on the environment's natural processes and contaminate the earth's atmosphere physically and biologically are referred to as environmental pollution. Air pollution, land pollution, water pollution, noise pollution, plastic pollution, and marine contamination are the main environmental issues. This pollution not only gravely harms the health of life forms, but also harms the ecology. Among the chronic health conditions that people experience include lung cancer, heart disease, kidney failure, brain, and neurological system illnesses. Waste management, greenhouse gas emissions, rising temperatures, and harsh weather are the main causes of this problem.

Session 7: Effects of 3R’s in climatic change
Burning, disposing of garbage, and the release of harmful gases from industrial processes all result in the release of methane and CO2, two greenhouse gases, into the atmosphere. This leads to climate change and global warming. Utilizing the three R's of Reduce, Recycle, and Reuse helps reduce the demand for new material harvesting, pollution prevention, energy conservation, and greenhouse gas emission reduction. Reusing products typically requires less energy than producing new ones. Thus, by carrying out these three, we may affect change and protect the environment.

Session 8:  Environmental pollution
Pollution control is the process of stopping or reducing the release of harmful contaminants into the environment. Pollution reduction contributes to the preservation of the environment by conserving and safeguarding natural resources for future generations. The efficient management and disposal of waste products from many businesses can contribute to environmental protection. Recycling waste products including plastic, paper, glass, and metal is the best approach to protecting natural resources and reducing pollution.

Session 9:  Plastic recycling
The term "plastic recycling" describes various processes that gather vast amounts of waste plastic and transform it into useful items instead of just dumping it on land or in water, which would contaminate the environment. Recycling plastic is one of the most difficult activities because plastics are non-biodegradable materials that demand more effort to limit their contribution to garbage. While HDPE plastics can be recycled, polystyrene, bubble wrap, and plastic bags cannot. Recycling plastics is challenging due to their low density and low value.

Session 10:  Paper recycling
Recycling paper is the process of reusing old or discarded paper to create new paper goods. Papers like white paper colored paper, magazines, and newspapers can all be recycled, however items like napkins, tissue paper, coffee cups, and sticky paper cannot. Paper recycling involves several processes, such as collection, sorting, shredding, pulping, filtering, and de-inking. This approach has the benefit of using less oil, water, and wood, which is beneficial. Another advantage is that 900 kg of recycled paper prevents the need for 3.6 cubic yards of landfill area.

Session 11:Agriculture and food waste recycling
Agricultural and food wastes are produced as a result of numerous operations, including farming, cropping, transportation, natural waste, animal waste, prepared food, and others. These wastes decay in landfills, where they release several greenhouse gases that contribute to global warming. The best answer is composting, which enhances soil nutrition, reduces greenhouse gas emissions, and produces biofuels and bioenergy. By properly managing garbage, the environment is kept safe for farm animals and crop production. 

Session 12:  Textile recycling
Textile recycling is the process of reclaiming used fabrics, yarn, and fibers and reprocessing them into equivalently valuable items. Textile recycling is one of the critical measures that must be put into place in many countries to reduce landfills. The collection of textile products from various industries is followed by treatment in line with the various types, conditions, compositions, and needs. It takes thousands of years for fibers to decompose, which releases dangerous chemicals into the atmosphere. It is estimated that 2,50,000 tonnes are disposed of in landfills annually, whereas 63,000 tonnes are recycled.

Session 13:  Glass recycling
Glass may be recycled 100 percent without suffering any change in quality or purity. The recycled glass is collected, disassembled, sorted, mixed with other materials, heated to a liquid state, and then moulded into the appropriate shapes. The pressing necessity for glass recycling stems from the fact that it frees up landfill space that would otherwise be occupied by used glass jars and items. Recycling glass lowers water and air pollution by 60% and 30%, respectively.

Session 14:  E waste management and recycling
The term "e-waste" refers to waste created by electronic devices and appliances. They are harmful because hazardous metals and chemicals are utilised to produce gadgets like televisions, laptops, and cell phones. The procedures included collection, disassembly, reduction, over-band magnet, separation of metallic and non-metallic components, and water separation. They also discharge hazardous byproducts like dioxins and hydrocarbons into the atmosphere. E-waste is produced mostly as a result of lifestyle modifications, technical advancements, and new innovations.

Session 15: Metal recycling
Nearly all metals can be recycled, except certain materials like uranium and plutonium. Continuous recycling of metals is possible without affecting their composition or physical makeup. Gathering scrap metal, crushing, compacting, eliminating non-metal components, and melting the metal in furnaces to create metal sheets are all steps in the recycling process for metal. Generally speaking, manufacturing new metals uses more water, energy, and greenhouse gases than recycling. According to the AISI, out of all the metals, steel is one of the metals that is recycled the most.

Session 16:  Industrial and chemical waste recycling
Industries are the main culprits for the severe damage done to the earth because of their discharges of radioactive materials, toxic fumes, and chemical waste into the atmosphere. To maintain a hygienic and clean environment, recycling should be practiced by all small enterprises and industries. Just a few of the industrial wastes that are created include scrap metal, poisonous chemicals, cleansers, paints, adhesives, soil, and gravel. High levels of hazardous compounds found in these wastes cause genetic diseases, kidney failure, nervous system illnesses, and other problems in both people and wildlife. There should be specific waste disposal techniques for each industry, small business, and business sectors, such as landfills, deep injection wells, and incineration.

Session 17: Rubber recycling
Creating new rubber products that can be utilized in similar ways. Recycled rubber refers to the process of repurposing worn out or damaged rubber components. Tire recycling is one of the most difficult and time consuming activities due to its volume, durability, and environmental fragility. Rubber recycling has several advantages over creating natural rubber, including saving non-renewable fossil fuels, being more economical and have superior characteristics.
-Recycling tires
-Ecological preservation
-Cost-effective production of natural rubber


Session 18:  Marine oil spilling
The primary causes of marine oil pollution are unintentional leaks or spills of refined petroleum products into the ocean, such as diesel or gasoline. The release of bunker fuels used by large ships is also mentioned, as are waste oil spills. These pollutants in the water have an effect on all marine species, including people. Small organisms absorb the toxin in the water, which is subsequently eaten by large fish, which are ultimately devoured by humans, causing birth abnormalities and long-term health issues. Additionally, they have an effect on marine plants, animals, seabirds, and corals. Oil spill cleanup techniques include using chemical dispersants, oil-absorbing pads, and biological agents.

Session 19:  Pyrolysis
During the pyrolysis process, solid wastes are burned at high temperatures in huge furnaces, which causes significantly less of the waste's volume and weight to be decreased and the generation of ash. According to the type of material, it is anticipated that the waste is reduced in weight by 80% to 85% and in volume by about 95%. Medical waste, biomedical waste, municipal waste, and hazardous waste can all be thoroughly burnt. Energy recovery from this procedure can be used to create electricity. The three primary stages of pyrolysis are sludge treatment, furnace combustion, and energy recovery. Typically, incinerators run in secluded areas with no people present. 

Session 20: Hazardous waste management
All wastes that must be appropriately handled before disposal are considered hazardous waste. Infectious, hazardous, radioactive, and medicinal wastes are a few of them. If handled incorrectly, they could be harmful to both people and animals. Hazardous waste often has a chemical makeup and can be either solid or liquid. The four primary methods for treating hazardous waste are surface storage in sealed bins, deep-well injection, landfill storage, and incineration. Damage may be caused by transportation, insufficient storage, treatment, and disposal facilities. They cause issues with breathing, skin and eye irritation, nausea, digestive distress, and other health issues.

Session 21: Bio energy and bio fuel
A renewable source of energy known as "bioenergy" includes plants, animal waste, agricultural waste, and food waste. It is one of the many different resources that are available to help people meet their energy needs. Hospitals, universities, schools, and government buildings can all use the electricity and gas produced from organic matter. Because they are produced through biological processes rather than any geological process, biofuels are forms of renewable energy that emit less than fossil fuels. A carbon-neutral fuel known as biodiesel is typically made from vegetable oils, animal fats, or other cooking oils. It does not add to the atmospheric CO2 and is non-toxic and biodegradable. People from all over the world have begun producing bioenergy and biofuels as there is a greater need for fuels and energy.

Session 22: Zero waste management
Zero waste management is a philosophy and a goal that seeks to reduce waste and maximize resource efficiency by rethinking the way we design, produce, consume, and dispose of products and materials. The ultimate goal of zero waste management is to eliminate waste altogether by conserving resources and reducing the negative impacts of waste on the environment and public health. Zero waste management is based on the principles of the circular economy, which emphasizes closed-loop systems that minimize waste and conserve resources. This approach involves reducing waste generation through design, reuse and repair of products, recycling of materials, and recovery of energy from waste.

Session 23 :  Innovations in waste-to-energy solutions
Waste-to-energy (WTE) solutions are methods of generating energy from waste material, reducing the amount of waste sent to landfills and mitigating the environmental impact of waste. There have been many recent innovations in WTE technologies that have improved the efficiency and effectiveness of these systems.

These are some of the innovations in WTE solutions that are helping to reduce the amount of waste sent to landfills, conserve resources, and mitigate the environmental impact of waste. WTE technologies are becoming increasingly important as cities and communities strive to create sustainable waste management systems that can effectively manage waste while generating energy.

Session 24 : Product stewardship
Product stewardship refers to the responsible management of a product throughout its entire life cycle, from the sourcing of raw materials to the disposal of the end-of-life product. This involves considering the environmental, social, and economic impacts of a product and taking actions to minimize harm and maximize benefits. The goal of product stewardship is to create a more sustainable product system by reducing waste and conserving resources.

Product stewardship programs can take a number of different forms, depending on the product and the stakeholders involved. For example, a producer responsibility program might require manufacturers to take responsibility for the collection, transport, and recycling of their products. Extended producer responsibility programs might also require manufacturers to pay a fee to cover the costs of end-of-life management.

Session 25 : Advances in composting Technologies 
 Composting is a process of breaking down organic waste, such as food and yard waste, into a nutrient-rich soil amendment. Advances in composting technologies have improved the efficiency, speed, and effectiveness of the composting process. Some of the key advances in composting technologies include: Aerated Composting Systems: These systems use forced air to oxygenate the composting material, which speeds up the breakdown of organic matter. In-Vessel Composting: In-vessel composting systems are closed containers that can be used to control temperature, moisture, and air flow for faster and more consistent composting.


                                                                                                                  Market Analysis                                                                                                           

About 2 billion metric tonnes of solid garbage are generated by humans every year through their businesses, homes, and industries. By 2050, it is predicted that the amount of garbage produced worldwide will more than double to 3.40 billion metric tonnes. Waste production and income are typically positively connected. By 2050, daily per capita trash generation in high-income countries is expected to increase by 19%, compared to lower- and middle-income countries where it is forecast to climb by around 40% or more. The generation of garbage initially decreases at the lowest income levels and subsequently grows more swiftly there than at higher income levels when income levels change gradually. The overall amount of waste generated in low-income nations is expected to have more than tripled by the year 2050. With 6% of the world's total waste output, the Middle East and North Africa region ranks last. In contrast, East Asia and the Pacific produce 23% of the world's rubbish. The fastest increasing regions, nevertheless, are Sub-Saharan Africa, South Asia, the Middle East, and North Africa, where it is predicted that by 2050, the total quantity of garbage produced in each of these areas will more than quadruple, double, and double, respectively. Most of the municipal solid waste (MSW) is generated in East Asia and the Pacific region. As one might expect from a country with 1.4 billion people, China produces the highest municipal solid garbage (nearly 15%). When compared by population, the US has the highest garbage production per person. Although it produces 12% of the world's solid waste, the United States only makes up roughly 5% of the world's population. It is also the leading producer of food waste in the entire world. You might be astonished to find that in all of Europe, Denmark produces the most rubbish per person. Yes, the purportedly pristine and eco-friendly Scandinavia produces the same amount of rubbish per person as the US.

During the projection period, between 2022 and 2029, the recycling market is expected to expand rapidly. The market is expected to increase over the predicted time period because key companies are adopting strategies more frequently and since the market is currently expanding steadily in 2022. The performance of the product will be further improved by technical innovation and improvement, expanding the downstream market's potential applications. Additionally, it's critical that we take into account customer preference research, market dynamics, new product introductions, the COVID-19 effect, local conflicts, and carbon neutrality in order to completely comprehend the recycling industry. The amount of money spent on purchases and the amount of garbage produced are directly correlated; the more money a person earns. The creation of garbage is also significantly influenced by industry. There is currently an attempt being made to recycle around 19% of the world's waste, demonstrating the vast market potential. The necessity to utilise material that was accumulating rather than dispose of it in the environment led to the creation of recycling. The global market for trash recycling has been rapidly growing as a result of the market share growth of recycling facilities. The garbage recycling industry is also benefiting from growing consumer awareness and environmental concerns.

The global industry for recycling trash was anticipated to be worth $55.1 billion in 2020 and might reach $90 billion by 2030. This significant development will be caused by increased efforts from all parties concerned and a better understanding of the negative effects of waste on the environment. Humans currently generate a wide range of wastes, such as industrial hazardous waste, industrial non-hazardous waste, agricultural and animal waste, medical waste, radioactive waste, construction and demolition waste, waste from extraction and mining, waste from oil and gas production, waste from the combustion of fossil fuels, etc. The amount of waste produced in each nation varies, as do the recycling rates. Almost every nation on earth is working to achieve waste management, one of the key UN sustainable development goals. When it comes to recycling and waste management, some nations outperform the average, while others do about averagely. Nations all around the world are always coming up with creative and innovative ways to put eco-friendly recycling practises into practise. The best recyclers in the world are acknowledged here, along with some of their innovative and environmentally friendly projects.

Germany, South Korea, Slovenia, Austria, and the Netherlands have the highest recycling rates in the world. The top on the list of countries that have improved the most is Poland. Amazingly, 886% more rubbish is being recycled now than at the turn of the millennium. Recycling climbed by 600% in Estonia over that time period, 261% in Ireland, and 250% in the UK. Recycling has improved by 42% globally across all countries. That's good news because trash management will be essential in the coming century. Despite this, a number of challenges, such as environmental contamination, an increase in e-waste, and incineration, are affecting the world's waste recycling sector. It is crucial to handle these issues in a logical and suitable manner. In addition, the earth is abundant with resources. Countries will have embraced more environmentally friendly waste management strategies to guarantee that resources are utilised more than once in order to support a growing global population and raising living standards. If not, there won't be enough resources for everyone. Eminent individuals will use the Recycling Congress 2023 as a key forum to discuss the concerns while sharing their expertise in the recycling and waste management sectors.
