The 2ND International Conference on Waste Engineering and Management

(First Announcement and Call for Papers) Tongji University, Shanghai, China 13-15 October 2010

Waste management has become one of the key issues of the modern world, an international issue that is intensified by the volume and complexity of domestic and industrial wastes. There is a need for more research on current disposal methods such as landfills, incineration and chemical treatment, but also on recycling, waste minimization, clean technologies, waste monitoring, public and corporate awareness and general education. ICWEM 2010 will be organized by the China Civil Engineering Society (CCES), the Hong Kong Institution of Engineers (HKIE), the Canadian Society for Civil Engineering (CSCE) and Tongji University. The conference is of particular interest for experts, engineers and related professionals engaged in professional activities related to environmental management, environmental sustainability, the control of air, water and land pollution, and the design, construction and operation of waste disposal facilities (land/water/air).



To advance the understanding and applications of engineering with respect to sustainable development in general, and environmental engineering and management in particular. 2. To advance integrated approaches to waste management, as appropriate, for different waste streams. 3. To promote the exchange of technical, scientific and professional knowledge on waste engineering and management to better serve the interests and welfare of CCES, HKIE, and CSCE members, the engineering profession in general, and the public in China, Hong Kong, Canada, and throughout the world. Conference Theme Construction waste recycling and civil engineering sustainable development 1.

Construction waste

Policies concerning resource reuse of construction wastes

Latest technology on resource reuse of construction wastes Scientific evaluation on resource reuse of construction wastes Materials and structures of recycled concrete Equipments for promotion of concrete recycling Environmental evaluation of recycled materials Computing & information technology applied to resource reuse of construction wastes Analysis of typical cases in China and abroad 2. Sustainable development of civil engineering Ecological city (low-carbon urban footprint) Ecological architecture and new countryside construction Energy-saving and environmental protection Energy-saving reconstruction Sustainable structures and green houses 3. Air Quality Reduction of airborne particulates and greenhouse gases Technologies for detection and monitoring of air pollution 4.
