ISWA-SWIS Winter School 2022: Summer Edition

ISWA-SWIS Winter School 2022: Summer Edition!, Arlington, Texas

June 6, 2022

The ISWA-SWIS Winter School 2022 will now take place this Summer!  Join SCS and other industry professionals at The University of Texas, Arlington, June 6-17, for this unparalleled opportunity to advance knowledge in the field of waste management.

The event was originally scheduled to be held in January, but was postponed to June due to the pandemic.

At the joint ISWA (International Solid Waste Association) and SWIS (Solid Waste Institute for Sustainability) Winter School at the University of Texas at Arlington, waste management professionals and students from all over the world will have the opportunity to learn about the potential and challenges of sustainable waste management, including landfill and landfill mining.

The best aspect of the Winter School is the blend of training styles. The in-class, theory-based training and hands-on, operational training are perfectly balanced – with one week dedicated to each.

Themes covered include:

  • Landfill siting, design and construction, and operation
  • Landfill leachate and gas management and utilization (LFGTE)
  • Sustainable waste management (including recycling, composting, and waste to energy)
  • Waste Economics including waste business development.

Specialty areas will be extensively covered, with project case studies discussed to enhance the learning experience.

It’s not all about waste as we introduce you to Texas! The SWIS Winter School organizers plan to take all the participants to this year’s Fort Worth Annual Stock Show and Rodeo, and participants will have the opportunity to watch live NBA Dallas Mavericks basketball games.
