Waste to Value: Towards Circularity

The AUA Acopian Center for the Environment is one of Armenia’s foremost promoters of the circular economy and the leading academic institution engaged with solid waste research, education, and policy development.

The Center’s specialists work with the Armenian Government as well as local and global experts to develop new national policies and strategies, guidelines for landfill and local waste management, market system development, tools and platforms for landfill mapping, and, notably, facilitation of policy dialogue across the sector.

The Center collaborates with the national, provincial, and local authorities, as well as businesses and business associations to promote sustainable waste governance, including intensive work on adoption of extended producer responsibility in Armenia.
