ISWA Publication Award
The ISWA Publication Award has been created with the intention of honoring the author(s) of a publication, article or book which is deemed to be exceptional in its contribution to the field of solid waste management. Each year, ISWA's panel of expert judges recognise the publication which they feel offers the most valuable contribution to the promotion of sustainable waste management.
ISWA PUBCLICATION AWARD WINNERS 2016
There were a number of outstanding nominations for the ISWA Publication Award 2016 and the judges found great difficulty in determining an overall winner due to the top-class level of and wide variety of subject matter covered by these submissions.
Three outstanding publications emerged following the panel review. One of these
publications, however, was the joint report by ISWA and UNEP – The Global Waste
Management Outlook by David Wilson et al. Due to the nature of the publication, ISWA’s contribution to it and the amount of publicity it has received, it was decided by ISWA’s STC Chair that this award should be recognised, but not considered for the ISWA Publication Award 2016. The GWMO was an outstanding and ground-breaking achievement of significant importance to the industry and should be recognised for this. ISWA will continue to promote this work and disseminate it across the industry.
With this in mind, it has been decided that the other two outstanding nominations, following a panel deadlock, would be jointly awarded with the 2016 ISWA Publication Award.
Therefore, it was decided that the other two outstanding nominations, following a panel deadlock, would be jointly awarded with the 2016 ISWA Publication Award. These were:
Greenhouse gas emission factors for recycling of source-segregated waste materials; Publication: Resources, Conservation & Recycling, 105, Part A, 186-197, 2015
