Siacan is the web application that allows you to keep simple and accurate control of the processes related to the production and waste management. It allows the consultation of information about the companies producing waste as well as those that are dedicated to their management (transporters, pickers, agents, dealers and treatment managers). It also allows producers and waste managers to complete and send telematic documents such as Prior Notices of Transfer, Control and Monitoring Documents, notification of joint transport of sanitary waste, the document of use of valorized slags, the Study of minimization of hazardous waste and certificates of destruction of VFVU. It also allows Local Authorities to send the information regarding waste corresponding to the licenses of works granted.
The advantages of Siacan is that the information provided is accurate and immediate, electronic document management, progressive elimination of paper support for documents, management through the WEB browser, allow digital signature, improvements in the processes of management and processing of Control and Monitoring documents, and it has an updated inventory of data on production entities and waste managers.
Siacan is an umbrella or overarching framework that encompasses all matters that may impinge on humans. Siacan is not limited to a narrow or restrictive understanding of the concept “social”. In fact the great potential of Siacan is not in decision-making, but in the process management. It should be seen as a process and not as a one-off report. For Siacan to be truly effective in its role of minimising impacts and maximising benefits through the development of mitigations mechanisms, and in facilitating public participation, it has to be considered as a process of management of change. The benefits of Siancan being seen as a process is that in construction of new development projects, public participation can contribute through local knowledge to development decisions, siting decisions and so on. Effective public participation is also one way of alleviating fear and feelings of unfairness.
There is a growing concern about the environmental and social consequences of development efforts. The developed world potentially faces enormous costs because of the need to restore and protect the environment in order to safeguard natural resources for future generations. Developing countries must consider how their social and economic development can be combined with protection of the environment and preservation of their natural resources. This should not be regarded as a luxury but rather as a necessity for sustainable development.
