CENTRAL AFRICA: A “Marketing and management of plastic waste” Mooc

By - Published on / Modified on

Les déchets ont une valeur : ici les déchets plastiques sont collectés, pour les trier, les traiter et les commercialiser.

The training, organised by the Bellomar Learning Group, to go from the 7th to the 10th of May 2018, will enable participants to process plastic waste for marketing purposes.

“Plastic waste pollutes our environment, but it can also be used as a second-generation raw material in the manufacture of useful goods and thus present an important source of income for people who have no life project.” It is in these terms that the main guide, Martial Oden Bella, presented the interest of this distance training session.

Among other objectives, the Massive Online Open Course (Mooc) is aimed at introducing learners to techniques for identifying types of plastic waste with a view to recycling them, familiarise them with techniques for treating plastic waste for marketing purposes and introduce them to the formalities for setting up businesses in the collection, treatment and marketing of plastic waste. With the help of six experts, the participants will be able to master the procedures relating to the creation of companies in management field of plastic waste.

The training targets students, people involved in urban waste recovery activities in Central African cities, representatives of population groups (associations and other non-governmental organisations)… According to the schedule, registrations will end on the 4th of May 2018 and it is free.

In Cameroon alone, plastic waste is estimated at around 600,000 tonnes, or nearly 10% of municipal waste produced each year. This training would therefore be a great benefit for the participants, because waste is a real employment slot.
