Italy – All aspects of global green technology will be represented at the 19th edition of the Ecomondo trade fair. Attendance of the event broke all records last year, with more than 100 000 trade and industry visitors from all over the world visiting the show.
A total of 16 halls of Rimini Fiera will be used to show off the latest innovations in recycling, waste treatment, green chemistry and bio-based processing. This expansion is necessary, according to organisers, as this ‘key’ exposition for recyclers in southern Europe and the Mediterranean has seen visitor numbers virtually double over the last five years.
The programme for this latest event will cover such topics as: the maturity of Italy’s e-scrap sector; advanced applications for solid recovered fuels; the zero waste debate; legislation supporting a green economy; and the implications of end-of-waste status.
This year, Ecomondo is hosting the new edition of the States General of the Green Economy, organised by the National Council of the Green Economy. This represents 66 business organisations, the Sustainable Development Foundation, and will include the participation of the Italian ministries for the environment and for economic development.
