Recycling GO 2017

The Heart of the Benelux Recycling Industry

For the eighth consecutive year, Evenementenhal Gorinchem will be hosting the Recycling trade fair. The Netherlands is one of the leading countries in recycling. In waste prevention, reuse, and recycling, the country is among the top 5 in Europe. A reason for pride. It also ensures a broad scope on the trade fair; from suppliers of smart parts, to producers of sizable recycling facilities, they’re all present to inform you on the latest developments.

Participants typically recycle paper, cardboard, plastics, rubber, scrap, car parts, non-ferrous materials, glass, and textiles. Are you a waste collection, processing, or recycling professional with a focus on construction and demolition? Then the Recycling trade fair is your place to be. Together we can strengthen the industry!

Themes and Subjects
Subjects such as circular economy, chain cooperation, laws and regulations, innovations, and developments will be discussed in-depth. The themes of Reduce, Re-use, and Recycling will receive special attention. Wednesday morning, BRBS Recycling will be organising the Recycling conference, after which industry-minded participants will be taking the trade floor. They work in the waste industry, and are looking for the latest Dutch technology and expertise.

Trade Floor Experience
You can follow a predefined Must-See Route along the exhibitors’ innovations, and vote for the most innovative product for the Innovation Award. Discover which interesting start-ups are making an appearance on the Start-Up Pavilion, or attend valuable knowledge sessions. Additionally, the Construction and Demolition Area focusses on construction and demolition professionals. As in the preceding years, Troostwijk will be leading an online auction for recycling machinery, amongst other items.

Valuable Partners
To maintain our relationship with the recycling market, we’ve initiated a board of advisors. Its members are the exhibitors Van der Spek, Van Werven, and BinBang, trade organisation BRBS Recycling, and media partner Eisma. They will be supporting us with market information, and shaping the concept further.

Participation Award 2016

During the last day of the trade fair, participants who maximised their trade fair results were handed the Participation Award. In 2015, Ditoil won the Participation Award, which they handed over to BinBang in 2016.

Of course, BinBang deservedly won the award. Their stand beautifully embraced the Circular Economy theme, and they actively promoted their participation beforehand. To top it off, they contributed to the extensive knowledge programme on the trade floor. In short, BinBang really maximised their participation results!
