Qatar is counted among the world’s fastest growing economies. Municipal solid waste management is one of the most serious challenges faced by this Gulf nation on account of high population growth rate, urbanization, industrial growth and economic expansion.
The country has one of the highest per capita waste generation rates worldwide which is as high as 1.8 kg per day. Qatar produces more than 2.5 million tons of municipal solid waste each year. Solid waste stream is mainly comprised of organic materials (around 60 percent) while the rest of the waste steam is made up of recyclables like glass, paper, metals and plastics.
Qatar has already committed to enforcing international standards for environmental protection when designing and implementing its industrial projects. Given the scenario, Nispana proudly presents the 6th Annual Waste Management & Recycling Summit Qatar scheduled on the 2-3 December 2015 at the Intercontinental Doha the City, Doha Qatar.
