IFAT in Munich has been the world’s leading trade fair for the management of drinking and domestic water, waste and raw materials for fifty years. It takes place every two years in Munich and each edition is a record compared to the previous one, both in terms of the number of exhibitors and visitors. In the previous edition in 2018, 3.305 exhibitors from 58 countries and over 142.472 visitors from 162 countries took part. The visitor structure was: 27% municipal waste disposal companies, 31% industry, 9% private waste disposal companies, 19% engineering and consulting companies and 14% authorities and associations.
The AHK Romania was present at the time with a delegation of almost 40 members, consisting of representatives of the local authorities, mayors or/and Vice-presidents of county councils, inter-community development associations and private companies operating in the waste management sector.
In addition to the fact that IFAT is the most important platform for environmental technologies in Europe, many participants pay special attention to the new professional program, which consists in a series of conferences. Participants have the opportunity to discuss interesting topics like: How can sustainable cities be designed and build? What is the circular economy and how is it implemented? The challenges of the future and what technology is required to deliver sustainable solutions? Among the main topics of the event we mention: the future of water, circular economy and resource efficiency, sustainable cities, intelligent units and emission-free products, hazardous substance management and goals for sustainable development.
The IFAT 2020 fair in Munich has been canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
