Disseminated by Public Opinions | Kampala Uganda| Web:www.pubopinions.org | 10th September 2017

The Ecomondo (The Green Technologies Expo 2017) will be held on 7th-10th November 2017 in Italy - Rimini Expo Centre. Once again this year Ecomondo - from 7th to 10th November 2017 will be organized under the banner of IEG (Italian Exhibition Group).

From 7th to 10th November the appointment with the leading European platform for the green industry alongside environment and sustainable economy companies. Debuts of the project on Sustainable Transport and Mobility, mainstays of the Urban Circular Economy, and the area on hydrogeological instability and prevention of climatic risks.

Over 100,000 people are expected to attend the Green Technologies Expo in which 9000 will be foreign buyers,1200 companies.  Information available indicate that 57% participants will be from Europe,5% from Africa and 4% from Middle East while 9% from The Americas.

The Expo will attract sectoral participations in which 41% will be from services sector,34% Industry and distribution,5% from construction sector,6% from Public Sector,5% from Research And Training, 4% from NGOs and Media,5% from Utilities And Agricultural Companies.

One of the emerging industrial areas of Ecomondo is the Italian and European Bio-based industry i.e. multi-product bio refineries (which produce several chemical compounds and biogas) and non-food biomass refineries, from wood cellulose and from organic waste, to be introduced in abandoned industrial areas. Reduction of food wastage, efficient energy use and transformation of the food industry including the integrated exploitation of its by-products and waste.

However Africa still lag behind in all these summits and meetings in promoting Green technologies. You can see that the whole of Africa will only be represented with 5% of all the participants and millions of people especially business leaders, young innovators, young businessmen in East are not involved in Green technologies meetings. Its indeed a big challenge.

Ecomondo is the leading Euro-Mediterranean area green and circular economy expo. An international event with an innovative format that brings together all sectors of the circular economy in a single platform: from material and energy recovery to sustainable development.

Running at the same time as Ecomondo is Key Energy, the expo of “energy for the climate”, energy-efficiency solutions and applications and renewable energy.
Since 2009, Ecomondo has also offered an ideal model of the Città Sostenibile (Sustainable City), in an exhibition space demonstrating models of urbanisation, technological solutions, projects, and mobility schemes that permit improvements in the population’s quality of life and promote sustainable territorial development.

Italy is among the leading countries in Europe in the green and circular economy, in particular in energy efficiency, waste recycling and resource productivity. For this reason, Ecomondo is a reference point in the international panorama, where all the leading companies of the sector can meet and discover the trends, innovations and new technologies and exchange views with sector professionals

Public Opinions International (East Africa) is involved in mass information dissemination and awareness on stakeholders in Africa on issues of attainment of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Our commitment is information dissemination and Public Awareness in Africa. Due to poor information and strong communication links with distributors,buyers and consumers in East Africa,importation and distribution of Italian products in the region remain minimal. East African importers,businessmen and young entrepreneurs plus governments have got alot of information on Chinese or Indian Products. China and India manufacturers have invested alot in information dissemination and public Relations on their products and services.
