In June, EU4Environment launches Industrial Waste Mapping (IWM) in two municipalities of Georgia – Rustavi and Zestaponi. These two municipalities will benefit from piloting a robust industrial waste mapping exercise to outline the lifecycle of industrial waste.
The waste mapping exercise aims to identify, assess, and map the waste streams of local manufacturing enterprises, from inception at the production site until final disposal. Its main goal is to develop options for an improved resource efficiency and introduction of circular economy principles and practices.
The stakeholders of the IWM activity, including the Georgian government, local government representatives, private companies, international experts and staff members from UNIDO and its national partners, will meet at the beginning of June. They will discuss IWM opportunities in Zestaponi and Rustavi to plan further steps and agree on the appropriate mapping methodology, available waste streams and industries in the region.
