Scientific Minds to discuss garbage crisis

Center for Natural Sciences and Environmental Research (Censer) Director Dr. Eric Punzalan will participate in a seminar-forum titled “Talking Trash: A Scientific Discussion on Garbage” on February 21 at the University of the Philippines, Diliman.

Punzalan was chosen to be one of the distinguished representatives from the private sector to give feedback on research findings to be presented by scientists from UP. Talks to be given include “Sources and mechanisms of groundwater contamination,” “Scientific landfill design,” and “The Japanese experience on recycling.”

The research studies aim to give an objective solution to the country’s garbage disposal problem. The forum also seeks to give a scientific perspective on effective waste management.
