Best Waste Management Research Study

Wonderful Opportunity to Participate

First, I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to the TIIKM committee and WCWM 2019 committee for giving me a wonderful opportunity to participate for an outstanding event of second World Conference on Waste Management – WCWM 2019 which was held on 7th 8th of March 2019 at Taj Samudra hotel. I have already attended many international conferences very successfully but WCWM 2019 has been a great experience for me.


Share Different Views and Experiences

The conference gathered many intelligent, sharp international colleagues, experienced persons from all around the world in different I was able to get and share different views and experiences. I fully enjoyed the two days’ events with so many interesting workshops, presentations and discussions on various topics which very useful to every individual person to save our planet. Waste management is the activities and actions required to manage waste from its inception to final disposal.


My Research Study

Waste management practices are not uniform among countries, regions, residential and industrial sectors which were clearly explained in the WCWM 2019. I have also presented my research study on” Investigation of electrochemical denitrification prawn farm wastewater”. Prawn industries are one of the fast-growing export-oriented industries in Sri Lanka that spreads over the coastal belt in North Western province of the country. However, wastewater originated from prawn-farms contain an excessive amount of nitrate that is becoming a crucial issue on human health and the environment. Currently, there are no proper practices to treat the wastewater arising from prawn industry in Sri Lanka. My study was aimed to develop an electrochemical method to remove nitrate from the simulated wastewater.


Overall Best Student Award

Based on the results of the study, it can be concluded that the removal efficiency rates with copper cathode was higher than that with carbon and aluminum cathode. The electrochemical method could be a potential method to remove nitrate from the wastewater due to its advantages. For my presentation, as a postgraduate student I have received the awards for the session’s best presentation and Overall best student presentation on this occasion, It was really happy to me. In addition, I would like to thank my supervisors, Dr. A. Manipura, Dr. D. T. Udagedara, Dr. C. Gunathilake and Mr. S. Kreshaanth. This is my unforgettable conference in my life and I would also like to wish the TIIkm committee all the success and everything.
