For three days, from March 18th to 20th, 2022, the 4th International Exhibition VERDETEC-2022 took place at the Mediterranean Exhibition Center, Attica, Greece. As more as 13,000 visitors had the opportunity to see and be informed about ‘today’ and ‘tomorrow’ of the circular economy and smart cities. More than 220 conference participants had the opportunity to develop and highlight every aspect of environmental cutting-edge issues. Scientists, specialized companies and institutions from the private and public sector provided answers and solutions through 32 workshops and events.
VERDETEC is the only specialized exhibition on environmental technologies held in Greece. The event has been steadily and dynamically built since 2017 hosting regional municipal associations, municipalities and companies with activities in renewable energy sources, product and material recycling, liquid and solid waste management, and electro-mobility. VERDETEC addresses to executives, engineers and technicians of LGOs, industry, small industry, representatives and traders from around Greece, as well as foreign company agents.
We participated for the first time in VERDETEC with a 300m2 booth, the largest in the exhibition, presenting in a conceptual way the company’s structure, philosophy and product range, to point out our leading positioning in the waste collection equipment market, in Greece. And to be timed with this year’s exhibition concept, we presented in real a wide range of electric powered vehicles. Among them, a refuse collection vehicle of 18m3 fitted on an electric VOLVO FE chassis, two satellite vehicles fitted on a QUANTRON and on a BYD chassis, a CityCat V20e BÜCHER sweeper, and a BLUEBUS. And since 18th of March was the International Recycling Day, we exhibited at the outdoor area a CRV 1600 Standard® of 6m3 fitted with specialized technologies for bio-waste collection.
The booth’s number of visitors exceeded our expectations, and their strong interest on our electric vehicles range confirmed the Greece market’s trend to embrace sustainable technologies in solid waste management. Discussions held with several municipalities executives all three days urged us to promote our efforts on sustainable technologies in order to keep up with the market’s future needs on equipment that significantly reduces the environmental footprint and the total cost of ownership.
