Welcome to the IWWG!

With a great pleasure I welcome you to the International Waste Working Group: a wide, active, scientific and professional forum, created in 2002 with the view to promote and disseminate new developments in the waste management industry worldwide.

Over the past 18 years, IWWG has turned into a family with members from all over the world that create and exchange knowledge, as well as experiences, but also work together. An intellectual platform to encourage and support integrated and sustainable waste management and promote practical scientific development in the field has been successfully established.

Navigating through this website you will have the chance to see some of the most important IWWG activities (Task Groups, Conferences, Scientific Journals, Books, etc.) and realize the benefits of joining this family, by becoming an IWWG member. I suppose that in 2020, due to the phenomenal COVID19 epidemic and the crisis it created, we realized more than ever that our planet is not as huge as it seems, countries as not so far away as we think and our problems are not as unique as we believe. That is why we need to cooperate and work together in order to face common challenges…and waste management is one of those.

Welcome again and I am looking forward to seeing you at one of our future events.

Yours sincerely,

Evangelos Gidarakos

IWWG President
