APLAS Bangkok 2021
The 11th Asia-Pacific Landfill Symposium

November 17-19 (Wed.-Fri.), 2021
The Twin Towers Hotel Bangkok, Thailand

APLAS was a symposium originally established to discuss about the topics relevant to landfill issues. Recently, the APLAS has become a major international meeting in the Asia-Pacific region for the discussion of waste problems among research, policy-making and industrial communities. The role of APLAS is thus to solve waste management problems from the viewpoints of regional and global environmental sustainability.

This symposium will address the advancements and challenges in the fields of waste policy and legislation, industrial practices, waste collection and transportation, resource recycling and recovery technologies, integrated waste management (biological treatments, thermal treatments, landfilling, and landfill restoration), waste-to-energy strategies, and hazardous waste management. The official language used in this symposium is English.

The conference will substantially consist of keynote/invited speakers, oral and poster presentations Due to the pandemic of Corona 19, EEAT has a solution on this matter by  online oral presentation.
