Los facilitadores están altamente especializados, tienen gran conocimiento y experiencia, una voz de gran autoridad.

Es excelente el curso, me encanta la temática, la metodología muy buena, adecuada; y ni que decir de donde sale este conocimiento.

This helps me through my solid waste management course at my university, although things explained here are not detailed (in general). This also expands my knowledge about solid waste management around the world, especially in developing countries (like my country, Indonesia).

So informative, and this course cover a wide range of topics without becoming overwhelming as everything is presented in a very clear way. The course is useful not only for waste mangagers (or anyone interested in waste) in low- or middle income countries, as transportation, landfill construction, recycling of different materials especially organic waste treatment possibilities are universal subjects. This course is very well suited for envorinental engineers, civil engineers, and even the general public. Poor solid waste management affects lives of billoins of people, the instructors do an excelent job at awareness raising, this is a urgent matter! I will recommend this course to everyone I know, by first showing them the demonstration film where black soldier fly larvae eat two whole fish in a few hours, leaving nothing! Impressive decomposition capacity, and an exiting approach to organic waste treatment, producing protein from organic waste.
