Two Nigerians made Nigeria proud at the recently
concluded 6th International Conference on Solid
Waste Management (IconSWM 2016) held in India.

They are Dr Adeniyi Saheed Aremu, a senior lecturer at the department of water resources and
environmental engineering, University of Ilorin,
Kwara state and Engineer Olasunkanmi Ojowuro of the Lagos State Waste Management Authority
(LAWMA), Lagos state.

They won the prestigious “Excellent Paper Award”
at the conference for proposing out-of-the-box ideas
on how best to turn waste to wealth.

The conference, which is the biggest sustainable
conference platform of the International Society of
Waste Management, Air and Water (ISWMAW), started in 2009 in India and working for the improvement of solid waste management and
protection of the environment.

The 6th IconSWM 2016 was held between November 24 and 26, 2016 at the Gandhi Bhaban and TEQIP Complex in Jadavpur University, Kolkata, West Bengal India.

Over 250 delegates from different countries
participated in the conference and deliberated on
various issues.
The issues focused on were innovation and
implementation of sustainable solid waste
management, segregation, collection, transportation
of waste, treatment technology, policy and strategies,
energy recovery, life cycle analysis, climate change,
research and business opportunities.
The papers by the two Nigerians were nominated
during the conference based on content and quality of
paper/research, and the theoretical/implementation/
conceptual relevance.
Their victory was announced by Prof. Sadhan K.
Ghosh, the chairman of IconSWM 2016 at the
valedictory session.
By this feat, the awardees are now automatic
members of the International Scientific Committee
(ISC) on solid waste management.

Aremu’s paper was titled “Waste to Energy:
Developing Countries’ Perspective”.
The paper conceptualises the daily volume and energy
value of wastes from developing countries as 4.2
million tons and 9.87 x 109kWh respectively.

Ojowuro’s paper centres on the “case study” category
and it attempts to characterize solid wastes from
different parts of Lagos metropolis in Nigeria.
In the study, it is estimated that about 13,000 metric
tonnes of solid waste is generated daily in Lagos state
from various human activities.
