The action will focus on the introduction of management models and appropriate technologies to improve the disposal of waste, according to the principles of the Circular economy, where the goods of today become the resources of tomorrow. The intervention is based in the city of La Paz, where the political and administrative conditions are suitable to implement integrated management models, because of the increasing environmental effects of the non-treated effluents, dumps and open-air waste combustion. The Autonomous government of the La Paz Municipality (GMALP) is starting to take the first steps towards the implementation of new methodologies to appropriately manage the waste, applying pilot plans of selective collection, raising awareness among the citizenship about environmental problems and experimenting new technologies for the recycling process. The project will provide thecnical/scientific help to the GMALP, with the introduction of new treatment systems, and the development of awareness and information campaigns. Hence, the activity will be implemented in collaboration with two universities (one Bolivian and one Italian). Those universities will have the role of verifying and consolidating the functionalities of the newly introduced systems and supporting the scientific dissemination of the innovative technologies implemented. The goals of the project are related to i) the improvement of the separated collections systems for paper, plastics, glass and metal implemented by the GMALP, ii) the introduction of new technologies for the energetic exploitation of non-recyclable waste (such as plastics, textiles, wood, cardboard, etc.), and iii) the application of innovative management models for special and/or hazardous wastes, such as construction and demolition waste. read more close
