Uncovering the Challenges of Global Waste Management
March 18, 2015 from our Articles, The 2013 Global Dialogue on Waste “Waste is not waste,” spouts Dr. Mike Biddle, Founder of MBA Polymers, “and the first problem is to stop calling it waste; these are resources.” A "one-fits-all" approach to waste management is not practical.

Solving the Global Waste Management Challenge
August 15, 2013 from our The 2013 Global Dialogue on Waste, Video Panels There are “composters”, bio guys, landfillers, waste to energy guys, anti-waste to energy guys, recyclers/zero-wasters, social mitigators, etc. As solid waste is one of the most complex and heterogeneous entities known to man, it stands to reason that a “one size fits all” solution is likely not practical.

This is why our panelists will discuss various questions which help us understand how the we can work together to solve the global waste management challenge.
