Waste To Wealth

Transforming a Seemingly Useless Commodity Into a Valuable Asset

21-22 May 2014
Crowne Plaza, Nairobi, Kenya

Why You Should Attend

Waste To Wealth

Waste Production in the East African region has jumped to staggering heights, as is the case in all developing regions. Currently the East African region has insufficient landfill sites to dump waste, and as a result the practice of dumping waste illegally is wide spread. This has extreme effects on the environment and human health.


At this cutting edge conference, we will be exploring ways to turn a seemingly useless commodity into something valuable, to improve your bottom line. At the Waste to Wealth event, we will be demonstrating how to develop a green business model that will be sustainable in the long term and improve your environmental footprint. In addition, we will be looking at the upcoming capacity building initiatives in the region. We will be exploring methods of incorporating the 4R principle and measuring waste management initiatives. Come join us at this interactive conference to discuss various waste treatment options, how to stay compliant to legislation and ensure you are ready for NEMA audits.


This conference will demonstrate the vast benefits of recycling and reuse initiatives in a changing world, where organisations need to increase profits and reduce costs. We are boasting with the best players in the field who will share their experiences and expertise on how to turn waste to wealth.
