Scientific Advisory Panel (SAP)
The Scientific Advisory Panel is a pool of a limited number of high-ranking distinguished scientists and professionals, appointed by the Board in view of their high reputation and standing. They act as a kind of think tank and support the Board. In addition, the SAP is preparing policy papers for the IWWG on current waste topics. These papers can be reviewed under the IWWG website section "Publications" as well as in the official journal of the IWWG, Waste Management.
Currently, the SAP consists of the following members:
