ENVIRONMENTAL ISSUES AND MANAGEMENT OF WASTE IN ENERGY AND MINERAL PRODUCTION.

This Symposium on Environmental Issues and Waste Management in Energy and Mineral Production (SWEMP) is the sixth of a series of biannual symposia on the subject matter.

It was last held in Calgary in 1992 (second of the series). The third and fourth SWEMP were held in Australia and Italy, respectively. The fifth SWEMP was held in Turkey in 1998. In view of the expressed interest of professionals from around the world, this series of symposia has become a biennial event. The next three symposia have been scheduled: Cagliari, Italy, in 2002, Ankara, Turkey, in 2004, and New Delhi, India, in 2006.
