The Congress has put together a varied selection of post conference Technical Tours which explore a range of operational facilities within the Cape Town surrounds, showcasing “how it can be done” (strengths, weakness, pitfalls, benefits) for small and large scale (volumes of waste), as well as packaging/ organics/ greens handling.
Our drive is “Waste to Wealth – Solutions for a Sustainable Future” with our focus on environmental and social prosperity. These tours are selected to help shared lessons learnt and to help decision makers be those drivers of change.
Tours have a maximum of 30 participants and will only run with a minimum of 10 participants.
If there is a facility you would like to visit and it is not included in the scheduled tours please contact
the Technical Tours Chair, Richard Emery on firstname.lastname@example.org.
