Trade show duo

Continued growth for SOLIDS & RECYCLING-TECHNIK

The trade show duo SOLIDS and RECYCLING-TECHNIK Dortmund will open its doors on the 7 and 8 November 2018. The show for recycling technologies will feature national and international exhibitors demonstrating the latest trends in the industry.

Together with SOLIDS Dortmund, the show for granules, powder and bulk material technologies, more than 500 exhibitors will present their companies and offerings across four exhibition halls. The organiser expects over 7000 visitors to attend, attracted by both the exhibition and its comprehensive supporting program.

“We clearly see the growing interest in recycling reflected in the growth in registration numbers,” says Daniel Eisele, Group Event Director and Exhibition Director for the organiser, Easyfairs Deutschland GmbH. On 7 and 8 November, RECYCLING-TECHNIK will take place in Dortmund simultaneously with SOLIDS Dortmund.

The organiser expects more than 500 exhibitors to participate; this represents an increase of 25 percent just for RECYCLING-TECHNIK alone. Exhibiting companies include a number of industry leaders such as Bezner Anlagen- und Maschinenbau, HAAS Holzzerkleinerungs- u. Fördertechnik GmbH, Huning Anlagenbau GmbH & Co KG, Lindner-Recyclingtech GmbH and MOCO Maschinen- und Apparatebau. At the show for granulate, powder and bulk material technologies – which for the first time in Germany is taking place under the name ‘SOLIDS Dortmund’ – established enterprises such as Endress+Hauser Messtechnik GmbH+Co KG, GKM Siebtechnik GmbH and HECHT Technologie GmbH will display their products and services alongside many first-time exhibitors, including Altenburger Maschinen Jäckering, Mahltechnik Görgens, RHEWA-WAAGENFABRIK and ZF Friedrichshafen AG.

Themed show days offer guidance for visitors

The 7000+ expected visitors will be offered an overview of the latest solutions and trends in the fields of granulates, powders and bulk materials, as well as recycling technologies. The 100-plus lectures, presented on the five stages of the InnovationCenter, and the topically oriented guided tours through the exhibition will offer visitors ample opportunities to learn and exchange knowledge with professional peers. The themed days – “Food” and “Building Materials Recycling” on 7 November and “Packaging Recycling” and “Commercial Waste Ordinance” on 8 November serve as further reference points. Providing information on these subjects are experts from, among others, the DGAW, Fraunhofer IML, Grüner Punkt, Hochschule Ostwestfalen-Lippe, Institut für Angewandte Bauforschung Weimar GmbH (IAB), vero e.V., the Confectionery Academy (ZDS) and the Central Packaging Register (ZSVR).

For the second time at the show, an international cooperation exchange – Matchmaking Recycling Technology 2018 – will take place at the WFZruhr community stand in Hall 7. It was created in cooperation with Enterprise Europe Network, Zenit GmbH and WFZruhr. The two shows will also be augmented by the 4th German Fire and Explosion Protection Congress of the IND EX® e.V and the 8th URBAN MINING® Congress; the conferences will run in parallel at the congress facility of the Messe Dortmund.
