The Urban Pathways project welcomes you to register to our upcoming webinars on Material Recovery Facilities. Two webinars are being offered on the topic.

  • Waste Technology Deep Dive #4: Materials Recovery Facilities – Technologies (see recording below)
  • Waste Technology Deep Dive #4: Materials Recovery Facilities – Design & Management (see recording below)

These webinars dive deep into Materials Recovery Facilities (MRF), also called Integrated Resource Recovery Centres (IRRC) or Multi Re-use Facilities. The first part will look at the different available types of MRFs and will give an overview of which technologies they use, followed by good practices from South Africa. The second webinar will focus on the design and management of MRFs, followed by a study case from Argentina.

The webinars are part of a series of Deep Dives into selected waste management technologies, organized by UN-Habitat’s Waste Wise Cities initiative, African Clean Cities Platform and the Wuppertal Institute for Climate, Environment, Energy, under the Urban Pathways Project.
