About this event

BESS Conference on Zero Waste and Circular Economy will be held in Dec 2021 online via Zoom. In a region full of biomass resources, Singapore lies in the center of South East Asia where biomass and biomass wastes are generated in large amounts. Additionally, the population of the region is currently at 675 million and growing at a rapid pace, correlating with a similar growth in waste generation. However, most countries now dispose of these wastes in environmental-unfriendly and unsustainable manners, like landfills, incineration or just discarding into open land or in the ocean. These methods generate significant greenhouse gas emissions and create future health hazards, in addition to killing wildlife and sea creatures. Therefore, the goal of achieving zero waste and using circular economy concepts for waste management has been of growing interest for many governments, including Singapore which launched its Zero Waste Nation goal in 2019. In this conference, we will explore these concepts and study the significant uses and potential for wastes towards achieving the Zero Waste goal using biotechnology and bioprocessing methods. The conference will bring together researchers from universities, industries and institutes from the surrounding South East Asia region, China and India, joined by colleagues in Europe and the Americas. Discussions on the latest development in zero waste and circular economy through topics in biotransformation and fermentation, waste upcycling and management, and life cycle analysis etc.
