Waste management solutions become a focal point for Eco Expo Asia 2013

Hong Kong - Eco Expo Asia, the region’s most highly-regarded green-tech exhibition, continues to receive phenomenal support and commitment from some of the industry’s leading suppliers, government authorities and technical experts. The show’s 2013 edition is scheduled to take place from 28 – 31 October at AsiaWorld-Expo in Hong Kong. Once again the fair is being organised by Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd and the Hong Kong Trade Development Council as well as their co-organiser the Environment Bureau of the Government of Hong Kong Special Administrative Region. Focusing on the growing market for waste management and green building solutions, the organisers are assembling a diverse collection of associated suppliers with innovative technologies that can positively impact the sustainable development at the individual, commercial and municipal levels in the region.

One of the biggest challenges currently facing companies, residents and government bodies across Asia is the effective handling of waste. Traditionally, landfills and incineration plants were the main methods of waste management in the region. While their popularity still remains strong, countries across Asia have started to acknowledge the limitations and environmental issues these methods cause. With this in mind, Eco Expo Asia’s 2013 show is placing a stronger emphasis on promoting technologies and solutions for reducing, reusing and recycling waste. Aiding in promotion of the show’s goal is a number of experienced world-class green-tech companies, presenting their latest solutions for the growing regional market. Some of the confirmed exhibitors specialised in waste management and recycling include:

Pyrum Innovations – A revolutionary recycled and plant construction company in France that transform rubber and plastic waste into useful oil, gas, coke, rubber flour, soot, charcoal and electricity. Aside the need for external energy during the start up process, their machines are completely self-sufficient.

Associated Engineers, Ltd – With over 50 years of experience as a turn-key engineering solutions provider, the Hong Kong-based firm primarily serves the industrial sector. Their goal at Eco Expo Asia is to promote an industrial food decomposing system which can reduce food waste by approximately 75% in volume.

SITA Waste Services Limited – the company is the world’s leading recycling and resource management company with long established professional knowledge and experience in the entire waste cycle. Its French parent company SUEZ ENVIRONNEMENT is a world leader dedicated to the water and waste businesses.

At the same time,  integration of renewable technology and eco-friendly materials has continued to experience strong demand in the sector.
