In particular, the participants will learn how to establish and use an extensive knowledgebase to support cost effective waste management decisions. The focus is on sound methodology (waste treatment unit processes, innovative assessment tools such as Material Flow Analysis, case studies for design of waste management systems) with special emphasis on practical applications. The project work to conduct during the summer school will be dedicated to the analysis and design of a waste management system. Participants of the Summer School are invited to present the outcomes of the project work at a distinct session the annual ISWA World Congress in Novi Sad.
