Tapping Africa’s waste opportunity


With several of Africa’s economies growing at breathtaking pace, bringing about increasing rates of affluence and consumption and all this accompanied by rising urbansiation, Africa’s waste is piling up. Some see it as a problem. But a growing number sees it as a tremendous opportunity – to  turn waste into wealth right across the continent.
 
The waste industry worldwide runs into billions of dollars annually. Africa’s waste industry is also significant, and growing, opening up opportunities for the creation of new ventures and expansion of existing ones, for the entry and growth of small businesses, job creation and for the introduction of new innovations and waste management techniques.
 
Wastex Africa, the continent’s first dedicated waste management and recycling, sustainability and environmental management expo seeks to tap this growing opportunity. Modelled on similar events around the world, Wastex Africa will showcase the full extent of Africa’s waste and green industry opportunity, enabling participants to do real business.
The Waste Indaba, Wastex Africa’s conference component, will provide a platform for industry actors from the public and private sector to dialogue, network and launch exciting new initiatives. Calling all Africa and the world to join us at the inaugural Wastex Africa on 29-31 May 2013 in Johannesburg, South Africa. Come and network, share experiences with and gain new insights from your industry peers from around the continent and the world. Above all, come and do business and thereby contribute to the growth of the industry and its contribution to entrepreneurship development, job creation and the promotion of sound environmental stewardship across the continent.
