Waste Management & Recycling Conference

Home > Events > Waste Management & Recycling Conference



Date: 11 – 13 March 2015
Frequency: Annual
Sequence: 6th edition
Venue: Inter Expo Center, Sofia

The core objective of ‘Save the Planet’ is to encourage the transfer of waste management and recycling technologies to South-East Europe and to provide its participants the opportunity to present their advanced products to all the important players in the Region.

SEE Member States are all aiming to become a part of the vision for a European circular economy. Governments across the Region are updating their national legislation, pursuing a strategy to modernise old infrastructures and promoting the waste hierarchy with innovative approaches. With EU Member States seeking to recycle 50 % of their waste by 2020, reduce the disposal of biodegradable waste to 25 % of total volume. The demand for separating -, baling, recycling and composting has been increased and many international companies enter the regional market.  

The Conference Highlights

  • EU Waste Management Day, in partnership with ENEP & ACR+, will provide all participants with key information on market entry, an opportunity to meet face-to-face state and municipal representatives and draw in expertise from across the European Union. An accent will be also put on the Cohesion Policy 2014-2020 in SE Europe which will have a significant impact on the speed of future investments in the waste management field.  
  • Speakers from:  EC DG Environment, EC DG REGIO, Association of Cities and Regions for Recycling and Sustainable Resource Management (ACR+) and the European Network of Environmental Professionals (ENEP). Bulgarian Association of Municipal Environmental Experts, Sofia Municipality, Bulgarian industrial Association, etc
  • Waste-to-Energy Workshop, in collaboration with WtERT, Greece, will present Global and Local Perspectives for New Waste-to-Energy Projects & Waste-to-Energy for Sustainable Economic and Social Development.
