    Beirut, Lebanon

    RAWMEC is Lebanon’s largest recycling and waste management exhibition and conference. It is part of a bigger platform called Lebanon Sustainability Week, which will focus on solid waste, industrial waste and alternative energy. With participation from various stakeholders including decision makers, industry experts, innovators, private sector, investors and academia, RAWMEC will provide impetus to sustainability initiatives in Lebanon and other regional countries.

    Lebanon Sustainability Week will be a venue for knowledge-sharing, brainstorming, solutions  delivery, technology transfer, peer networking and capacity building in the solid waste management, industrial waste management, industrial wastewater treatment and renewable energy sectors. It will provide a deep understanding of social, economic, environmental and technology trends driving the sustainability sector and will help in implementing technology-driven solutions to key environmental problems in Lebanon.

    Working towards A Sustainable Future: Industrial waste management is a major problem in Lebanon which has exacerbated in recent years. Unlike other MENA countries, Lebanon is blessed with an abundant supply of freshwater resources but most of the water bodies in the country are highly polluted, primarily due to reckless discharge of untreated industries wastes. Due to the lack of wastewater treatment facilities, large amounts of industrial wastes, both solid industrial effluents and industrial wastewater are discarded directly into lakes, rivers, sea as well as on land. There is an urgent need to implement industrial waste treatment strategies and adopt modern practices to treat and recycle industrial wastes as well as industrial wastewater, in order to ensure a sustainable future for Lebanon.

    The Need for Alternative Energy: Lebanon’s energy sector is characterised by a significant supply-demand imbalance, high generation costs and a lack of financial sustainability. Alternative energy can make huge contribution to Lebanon’s power sector, increasing the reliability of the power supply and decreasing the heavy reliance on fuel imports.

    Event Dates: 23-25 June 2020
    Event Objectives: The event will be a strong and unique platform to foster sustainability in Lebanon and facilitate a dialogue among different stakeholders to achieve the SDGs mentioned in United Nation’s 2030. Agenda for Sustainable Development. LSW will be Lebanon’s largest gathering of policy-makers, investors, public sector, private sector, academia and entrepreneurs and other stakeholders with the key objective of catalysing sustainable development and accelerating natural resource conservation.
