Welcome to the new webdesign of the GETRES (10/03/2010)

During the next few weeks the site will have new improvements (restricted area with availability of classroom material) and update more often




One of the main problems faced by the modern society is the management of the domestic, industrial and commercial solid waste whose production grows each day. The problem is more critical in the cities of country in development due to lack of resources, difficulties with the residues management and lack of specialize human resources. More than 80% of the Brazilian cities throw its solid waste in opened sky areas, in water courses or protected environment areas, evidencing the bad management of the solid residues.


Group objectives

The GETRES is working since 1998 with the following objectives:
• To study technologies of solid waste treatment and disposal currently adopted in Brazil and other countries;
• To debate and exchange information inside the context of alternative technologies for solid waste management;
• To increase the equipment knowledge and solid waste technologies, monitoring, closing the disposal areas, recycling and reuse of waste and rejects, among others.
