Wide popularity of its cultural contents has drawn an unprecedented international attention on South Korea. However, there is yet another change in South Korea that has been under development for years that deserves a closer observation. Within just few decades, war stricken South Korea has transformed itself to not just follow the global trend, but to inspire others by example. South Korea is now dubbed as one of the leading countries in waste sorting and recycling system. 

In this session, we will review the history of South Korea’s sorted waste and recycling scheme to discover the lessons learned and also to take a look at how South Korea plans to use advanced technologies to push ahead with its contribution to environmental sustainability.
