The first topic on Waste-to-Fuel Technologies was presented by Nawon Kim (EAEN). She discussed that she and other participants visited Korea's mature waste-to-fuel technologies and learned a lot from this ADB-funded week-long training. Interestingly, we can actually generate fuel from our waste and use it for vehicles. Wastes can potentially benefit us when we turn them into good use as such! Would these waste-to-fuel technologies be adopted in other countries? Let's hope and and see that these technologies will gain much traction in the region.
Keiichi Tamaki (SAUW) discussed Electric Vehicle-based Public Transportation. He presented electric vehicle-based transport in Nepal and how this has been increasingly used in other Asean countries.
The last topic on Integrated Mass Transit Corridors was energetically presented by duo David Margonsztern (CWUW) and Lloyd Wright (SDAS). Cities across the region would benefit from lesser congestion and carbon emissions when integrated mass transit corridors are developed. This introduces new paradigm in conceptualizing projects to be cross cutting in different subsectors and able to deliver better services.
