Rapid urbanization and industrial development around the world have put pressure on the society in handling the tremendous increase in volume of wastes of diverse nature, and force us to plan for the next 10-20 years in an immediate manner. Besides, under the threat of global warming, every waste treatment option and technology should be characterized with their contribution to avoid the environmental deterioration. Rapidly depleting mineral and energy sources around the world forced us to consider the wastes as resources and not as wastes anymore. Therefore, a multidimensional approach is required to manage the generated solid waste and problem of climate change.

In order to share the most updated and advanced knowledge from all over the world, the International Conference on Solid Waste 2013: Innovation in Technology and Management conference will deliberate on various issues related to innovation in waste treatment technology and waste management strategies with the purpose to combat climate change from the waste perspectives.
