The latest eco-friendly technological solutions impacting the global recycling industry will be on display at the recycling expo Ecomondo, taking place in Rimini from 8-11 November.
The exhibition will be arranged according to Ecomondo’s four pillars. These are:
- Waste management
- circular bio-economy & bio-energy
- Water treatment & management
- reclamation and redevelopment of contaminated and disused industrial sites
Once again the show will cover many different types of equipment, smart solutions, ranging from large machinery for metal recovery to digital control solutions for distributing water; from technologies for regenerating soil and degraded industrial sites to 3D printers powered by bio-plastics.
A special recycling ‘hub’ is the so-called Textile Observatory, which was launched in 2021 edition. It aims to unite all the main players along the supply chain, from waste producers, to managers, consortiums, trade associations and research and development institutes, with focus on eco-design in sustainable textile production.
Italian and international start-ups and scale-ups will be at Ecomondo to complete the green technology supply chain with innovative products and services, from recycling to renewables, in partnership with ITA-Italian Trade Agency and ART-ER.
Other hot topics being addressed are health standards, food waste and packaging waste reduction in the pre- and post-consumption phases.
