Increasing scarcity of natural resources and rising raw material costs have made waste management a critical component of modern urban life. With an estimated 1.3 billion tons of solid waste produced by cities around the world annually, the growth of industrial output and rapid urbanization have made the establishment of efficient and sustainable waste management techniques a priority for the U.S. and Turkish governments.
Waste management requires both innovation and advancement in business practices and investment in research and development to improve technology. Experts predict that the investment in waste collection, processing, energy recovering, and disposal technologies will reach $6.5 billion annually by 2023 in the U.S. alone.
The need for practical knowledge, local networks, and expensive technological infrastructure make it more important than ever that Turkey and the U.S. work together to help improve waste management techniques and technologies.
