TECHNOLOGY FOR THE ENVIRONMENT ON SHOW IN CASABLANCA
The very best technologies, products and services in relation to the theme of the environment will be on show at the Pollutec Morocco 2014 exhibition.
The display will range from water to air, from waste management to recycling and renewable energy, and from risk prevention to sustainable development.
The exhibition is due to take place in Casablanca from October 15th to 18th, and Italy will be attendance with some of the country‚Äôs top technological solutions.
The sixth edition of this event will be held at the city‚Äôs exhibition centre, O.F.E.C. (Office des Foires et Expositions de Casablanca), and will occupy a show space of 6400 square metres. A total of 350 Moroccan and international exhibitors will be in attendance, representing many aspects of the environmental sector. It is expected that some 8000 visitors will come to this important event, drawn from local government and community groups, the construction industry and the service sector.
The Italian Trade Promotion Agency (I.C.E.) will be organising the Italian collective at the Pollutec event for the third time, with a selection of 25 companies from the sector, 12 of which will be newcomers.
They will propose some of the best technological advances and innovations in the fields of renewable energy and waste management, the design, development and operation of energy generating systems, and biogas plants for landfill sites.
Visitors will therefore have an excellent opportunity to get to know this important Italian sector, and to strengthen their previous links with Italian companies operating in its different branches: as suppliers of products or technology, and as service providers or consultants.
The Italian delegation will occupy a display area of 288 square metres, divided into four separate islands. The Piedmont CEI will form part of the collective on this occasion, with a representation of four companies from the region. In addition to Italy, the countries with official national pavilions will include France (with a display area of about 500 square metres), and Germany (with 81 square metres). Other exhibitors will be from Spain, Portugal, Belgium, Singapore and the U.A.E.
This edition of the fair will also host a symposium dedicated to the theme of waste treatment. In addition, a delegation from the African states of Togo, Burkina Faso, Mali and Mauritania has been invited to take part: an indication of the fact that Morocco now represents an important hub for the countries of sub-Saharan Africa.
At the same time as the Pollutec Morocco fair, another related event will be taking place at the O.F.E.C. exhibition centre: the ElecExpo Forum. Organised by the local trade association for the electric, electronic and renewable energy industries, it will serve as a meeting place to discuss energy policy and problems both at national and international level, and will provide information on new technologies and opportunities in the sector.
