About Conference
5th IconSWM 2015
IconSWM is the conference platform of ISWMAWfounded in the year 2009. This is the biggest sustainable platform in India working for the betterment of SWM and environment protection in the country. Problem of waste management in India primarily lies in poor segregation of waste. The 5th IconSWM 2015 will deliberate on various issues related to innovation and implementation in sustainable waste management, waste segregation, collection, transportation, treatment technology, policy & strategies, energy recovery, life cycle analysis, climate change, research and business opportunities. The 5th IconSWM 2015 will be organised by jointly CiSTUP and KSCST of Indian Institute of Science, Bengaluru and CQMS, Jadavpur University, Kolkata. The 4th IconSWM 2014 was held at Hyderabad hosted by the MA&UD Department, Govt. of Andhra Pradesh attended by 1200 delegates from 17 countries. The 3rd IconSWM 2012 held at the Mysore Infosys Campus was attended by 1400 delegates from 11 countries. The 1st and 2nd IconSWM was organised by CQMS, Jadavpur University. IconSWM consists of the international conference and exhibition. 5th IconSWM 2015 expects 1000 delegates from more than 25 countries at IISc Bengaluru.

ISWMAW Research Projects :
IconSWM - ISWMAW have ongoing research projects that are not conventionally addressed but are essential e.g., 1) “Statewide study on MSW” at Bengaluru by IISc, ISRO, Bengaluru and CQMS, Jadavpur University Kolkata. 2) “Model Bio Gas Plant” by Mysore City Corporation, National Institute of Engineering, Mysore, CQMS, Jadavpur University and ISWMAW. 3) “Study on Asia Pacific initiatives on Energy Recovery from Waste” by UKIERI Project CQMS Jadavpur University, Aston University and Kingston University, UK. 4) ‘Waste Management Supply Chain’ by CQMS, Jadavpur University, Kolkata, India Tsingha University, China and Aston Universities, UK. IconSWM – ISWMAW funds research projects. ISWMAWand IconSWM planed international Collaborative project, a) EffectiveSWMand compendium ofSWMBest Practices worldwide” and “Service Learning Framework for SWM and environment protection & SL Measuring Tools” with potential partners such as - Fu Jen Catholic University Taiwan, St Paul's University Philippines, Lingnan University Hong Kong, Miriam College Philippines, Loyola College, India and ISWMAW. IconSWMISWMAWis working worldwide for tf4icwu (Task Force for International Cooperation forWaste Utilisation) with researchers from several institutions, e.g., Jadavpur University, IISc, NEERI, Tongji University Shanghai, Tsinhua University Beijing, Fu Jen Catholic University Taiwan, University of Malaya Kualalumpur, University of Mauritius, Imperial College London, Sheffield University, Nanyang Technological University, Hong Kong Baptist University, Aston University Birmingham, Kingston University London, University of Peradeniya Srilanka, University of MelbourneAustralia and other.

Introduction :
Rapid economic growth is leading to urbanization and industrialization which in turn generates wastes that adversely affect the environment. According to the UN estimate about 90% of future growth will take place in cities. In India the daily per capita MSW generated ranges from about 150 grams in small towns to 700 grams in large towns with an estimated increase at 1-1.33% annually which leads to an annual generation of nearly 50 million tons. The average collection efficiency for MSW in Indian cities is nearly 72.5% In addition the Industrial Waste generation and sludge in waste water treatment plants make the amount waste multifold that of MSW. Technological advances and Research become essential to meet new challenges and these need to be rapidly conveyed to the potential users - the ULBs. Today there are a few sustained initiatives of energy recovery from wastes in India, while initiatives in composting, recycling and Biogas generation are maturing to new levels. Industrial waste management in industries have initiatives both in isolation and integration. The fly ash & bottom ash management has still lot more scopes for improvement.
in this interim time that await setting up good SWM systems in ULBs waste dumping is a prevalent and common practice while only a handful initiatives practice sanitary Iandfill. Growth in industrial waste generation is also very high and sometimes mix with SW. The range and complexity of the issues involved inWaste Management in India is enormous. Very large opportunities and scope exist for effective waste management through implementation of sustainable and appropriate technologies in composting, recycling, biomethanation / biogas production, waste to energy plants, etc. that in the final analysis send the least amount of inert to landfill. IconSWM is the platform created to bring many customized and tested solutions of sustainable waste management to participants across the world and especially practioners in India. Research in the areas of SWM needs to be strengthened in India.
