   Professor Zhang Xuehua Gave a Public Talk in Chengdu Regarding India’s Solid Waste ManagementProfessor Zhang Xuehua Gave a Public Talk in Chengdu Regarding India’s Solid Waste Management

   On August 31, 2016, Professor Zhang was invited to give a public talk on India’s solid waste management to the general public in Chengdu. The talk was organized by the Chengdu Roots and Shoots and well attended by roughly 70-80 people from local  communities, local NGOs, local enterprises and the city government in charge of urban solid waste management.

    Professor Zhang shared her experience and research on the solid waste management in Bangalore, India. Bangalore is the third largest municipality in India and known as Asia’s Silicon Valley. A public litigation lawsuit filed in 2012 by the citizens in Bangalore had led to the promulgation of the new city-wide policy in 2013 that mandates the residential areas with more than 50 households to implement waste segregation and treatment at source. As a result, over 100 communities have installed wet waste composting facilities. Professor Zhang discussed the pros and cons of this new policy and its implementation challenges.
