Save the Planet is the only specialized business event in Bulgaria dedicated to waste management, following the trend of replacing the ‘take, make, dispose’ model with a ‘circular economy’ approach across Europe. The exhibition’s focus is the South-East European market, which must respond timely to the growing environmental damage.
EU members from SE Europe have to recycle 70% of their construction waste, 50% of the municipal waste and 35% of biodegradable waste till 2020. They are facing numerous challenges to improve their resource efficiency and to achieve the high European waste management targets, which is why Save the Planet offers a suitable platform for introducing innovations in the sector.
The 2016 edition took place together with the complementary exhibitions Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy (energy efficient technology and alternative energy, waste-to-energy) and Smart Cities (energy efficient building, intelligent transport, software and information systems). Exhibitors from 16 countries participated in the events - companies from Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Germany, Greece, Italy, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Sweden, Switzerland, the Netherlands, the UK, the USA.
