RUNISRB - Desciption and activities

The IWWG Regional Branch for Russia and New Independent States (IWWG-RUNISRB) has been established at Perm National Research Polytechnic University (PNRPU), Russia in December 2015. The main goal of IWWG-RUNISRB is to create a platform for scientific, technical and practical information exchange on waste management among the leading scientific organizations, business representatives and state authorities of Russia,
Kazakhstan, Belarus, Ukraine and other interested former CIS countries.
Moreover, conferences, courses, and workshops will be organized in the region in order to form a joint information platform and to
create a scientific, educational and consulting center in the field of waste management.
Russian universities from Perm, Yekaterinburg and Irkutsk took part in the branch creation process. In the future, other Universities from Russia and other countries (e.g. Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Belarus) shall be actively involved in the activities of the branch.

The branch is coordinated by Dr. Natalia Sliusar (Associate Professor of Environmental Protection Department at PNRPU) and Prof. Vladimir Korotaev (Vice-Rector for Science and Innovation at PNRPU).

Upcoming activities:

IWWG-RUNISRB together with Perm Polytechnic University (PNRPU) organizes a Session on Digital Technologies in the Field of Waste Management at the conference within the framework of WasteTech-2019: June 4, 2019, Crocus Expo, Moscow, Russia. The session will take place within the framework of the conference “Ways of Development of the Waste Management Industry within the Framework of the National Project “Ecology””, held at WasteTech-2019. WasteTech is a premier forum covering waste treatment, environmental protection and renewable energy in Russia and neighboring countries.

At the session the following topics will be extensively discussed:

  • Intellectual waste collection;
  • Automated and robotic waste sorting complexes;
  • The use of satellite imagery data and data from the UAV for monitoring waste disposal facilities;
  • Software systems and mobile applications in the field of waste management.

Workshop on Waste Composition and Per Capita Waste Generation Rates, 8th June, 2017 in Moscow, Crocus Expo.

The workshop took place within the framework of the International Exhibition for Waste Management, Recycling Environmental Technologies and Renewable Energy – WasteTech-2017. WasteTech is a premier forum covering waste treatment, environmental protection and renewable energy in Russia and neighboring countries.

The audience of the Workshop was mixed, including representatives of authorities, business community, students and university lecturers, in total about twenty people. Thanks to this composition of participants, an interesting discussion has arisen. Many companies have already started working on the analysis of rates of waste generation per capita and waste composition, and identified some gaps in the existing methodology. The shortcomings of the current normative and methodological documents were discussed; the participants of the Workshop shared their experience on the possibilities of filling the identified gaps. Foreign participants of the Workshop spoke about their experience in this field; e.g., it was mentioned that in Germany the study of the waste composition is used among other things to assess the effectiveness of the separate waste collection system.
