"Possibility of Self-Sustaining Communities in the Asia Pacific Regions"
The creation of recycling societies, or the establishment of circular economies, is a central theme to be pursued in the 21 Century. Current combination of technologies available in Japan for resource recovery and waste management/sewage treatment are overly sophisticated and costly, which is not the kind of technologies sought by the developing world. What they need is self-sustaining resource recovery and recycling systems manageable in small communities.
There is a private company which has been operationalizing this concept in a commercially viable manner. Chairman and CEO Amita Holdings, a JASDAQ listed company, are visiting APU on the 15th of January (Friday) to share their experiences.
There would be two sessions on that day. One is “Seminar on Self-sustaining Society with Community based Resource Recovery Systems”, in which two lectures would be provided by the top management of Amita Group at the 3rd period of January 15 at F103. The other is “Round-table Discussion”, which would be free-flow discussions to be conducted in an informal and casual manner at the 4th period on the same day at RCAPS seminar room.
Language would be the combination of Japanese and English. Translation would be made available from Japanese to English.
