Pre-Recorded Webinar Talk on Waste to Wealth – [in conjunction with World Engineering Day Celebration from 4th March till 9th March 2024] (Digital Platform)

March 5 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm UTC+8

SYNOPSIS

Waste to wealth has been a topic mentioned globally but how many understand on what is involved and how to implement. Efforts have been so far, on piece meal basis and the result has yet to be seen.

This paper will introduce what is waste to wealth in the water industry and what is available to be reused and recycled. We have waste residues in the water supply industry at more than 2 million metric per year and in the domestic wastewater treatment there is a by-product of methane gas of more than 2 million m3/yr, 6,885 MLD treated effluent and 76,000 tonne/year of sludge that have great potential to be converted into waste to resource. These exclude other wastes that can be part of the circular economy and offer a sustainable business in the water industry.
What can be done and what type of support required by stakeholders will be explained to help realise the waste to resource and transforming the water sector to achieve the waste to wealth and application of sustainability through the zero waste management concept. This will be in line with the Water Sector Transformation Programme (WST2040) as approved by the government for implementation in all Malaysian Plan by 2040.

Keywords: Waste, Waste to resource, Waste to Wealth-, Circular Economy, Zero Waste.
