Conference Highlights

WASTE DOESN’T NEED TO BE WASTE

From the re-entry of construction wastes and marine sediments into the production cycle, to the reuse of existing foundations and the use of re/upcycled geotextiles,  environmental geotechnics are laying the ground for greener circular economy in constructions.

MANAGEMENT OF HAZARDOUS SUBSTANCES

Despite the improvements in living conditions over the last century, pollution continues to have profound effects on human health with over 9 million deaths worldwide  be attributed to disease from exposure to pollution. Hazardous substances, unregulated contaminants, and medical waste in the era of a pandemic are global threats, that call for innovation in soil remediation techniques.

ACCESS TO CLEAN ENERGY

Access to energy is increasingly recognized as a basic human need. One of the UN Sustainable Development Goals is to “ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all” by 2030. Exploiting the potential of green sources of energy and energy recovery from waste can ensure secure and affordable energy supplies for more people while supporting global climate change objectives.

DESIGNING  IN EXTREME ENVIRONMENTS

We live in a challenging era;  increasing flooding events create havoc across the world, droughts seriously threaten water supplies and extreme heat creates unlivable conditions in major city centers. Designing infrastructure to withstand such extreme conditions while safeguarding community resilience remains an open challenge for environmental engineers.
