For 50 years now, businesses have been meeting in Munich every two years to take part in the world’s leading trade fair for water, sewage, waste and raw materials management. The international interest in the IFAT is overwhelming. The huge numbers of exhibitors and visitors make it very clear just how important this major international exhibition has become – an exhibition that has been focusing on intelligent recycling solutions, state-of-the-art recycling logistics and water conservation for many years now. Over 3,000 exhibitors from around 60 countries and more than 135,000 visitors from 168 nations will be travelling to the event, which will be covering a total area of 230,000m². REMONDIS AQUA’s TetraPhos® process will be one of the innovations being presented to the visitors this year.
REMONDIS at the IFAT:
30 May to 03 June
The fact that the IFAT is such an international event makes it possible for interdisciplinary synergies to be created so that joint steps can be taken to increase quality of life and protect the environment right around the world. The exhibition is, therefore, making an important contribution towards shaping the future of our planet. The fact that REMONDIS’ project, “REMONDIS TetraPhos® – Recovering phosphate from sewage sludge ash”, has been shortlisted for the GreenTec Awards 2016 in the Category Recycling & Resources fits in perfectly here.
Looking at the various environmental problems caused by spreading conventional sewage sludge on our fields as a fertiliser, it is only a matter of time now before this practice is stopped. REMONDIS’ TetraPhos® process is an innovative way to solve two problems in one go: to protect our environment and rivers and lakes as well as to help counteract the imminent shortage of phosphate-based fertilisers. The winners of the GreenTec Awards will be announced during the awards ceremony which is being held in Munich on 29 May 2016, the evening before the IFAT opens. Simply being nominated shows that TetraPhos® is a genuine innovation that can help make our planet, our water and our soils that little bit cleaner and that little bit safer. People wishing to learn more about this process and about other services offered by the company can visit REMONDIS at the IFAT at its stand (251/350) in hall B1 from 30 May to 03 June.
