Innovative Ways to Understand, Tackle and Reduce Waste Crime: WASTE MANAGEMENT Smart Class 2019 Retrospective


See Related event

The Life SMART Waste Project is an EU wide project which commenced in 2014 and is due for completion later this year. The Project was given a 4.3 million euro budget to design tools and techniques which, although piloted and tested within the UK were transferrable across Europe. The Project is led by the Scottish Environment Protection Agency with 3 other associated beneficiaries: Natural Resources Wales, ACR+ (an international network of cities and regions who share an aim of promoting sustainable resource management based in Belgium) and the Brussels Environment. Last month, at WASTE MANAGEMENT Smart Class 2019, we welcomed SEPA’s Iain Brockie back to the podium to present some of the innovative digital and data driven tools and techniques – from Horizon Scanning and Competitive Behaviour Toolkits to Remote Sensing and Waste Flow Tracking – that are being developed and also update us on the afterlife plan around guidance, policy and training which will continue after the Project has ended. Iain also outlined in his keynote some of the joint work SEPA are undertaking with Interpol in relation to China’s recent restrictions on plastics importation.
