Germany – ‘Waste paper is one of the most important and hottest commodities, and traded globally as a profitable asset,’ notes Geoplan, host of the latest Recycling Aktiv trade show to be staged from June 11 to 13 at Karlsruhe/Baden-Baden airport in Germany. The theme of this year’s event will be ‘paper, cardboard and cardboard packaging’.
Various items of equipment will be showcased, notably state-of-the-art recycling systems to sort, bundle, store and transport recovered paper. Geoplan stresses that such innovative solutions are vital to the sector because ‘the greater the demand, the higher the demands on the quality of the respective grades of waste paper’.
At Recycling Aktiv, around 8000 tonnes of scrap metal, paper, wood, plastics and construction & demolition waste will be recycled during the live demonstrations that will take place over an area of 2000 m2. Professional moderators will offer visitors a step-by-step guide through the many different recycling processes.
