From 17 to 19 October 2017, ECC Sokolniki in Moscow will host Wasma 14th International Exhibition of Equipment and Technologies for Waste Management, Recycling and Water Treatment. The event is organised by ITE Group leading in the Russian market of exhibition services.

Wasma is a specialised annual exhibition introducing visitors to equipment designed to collect, transport, sort out and recycle industrial and household waste, as well as to water treatment and conditioning equipment.

Today, state regulation in the waste management field fosters a culture of efficient waste recycling. Sixty-four constituent entities of the Russian Federation have already prepared territorial waste management schemes and are selecting regional SMW handling operators by tender. There is a demand for waste sorting and recycling equipment growing across these regions.

Visiting Wasma, therefore, will allow companies, which seek to become regional operators or which have already obtained this status, to choose the best options for organising an integrated waste recycling system from the wide array of equipment displayed at the exhibition.

While visiting Wasma 2017, managers and ecologists of commercial facilities and production plants will find containers and euro containers for bulky waste; containers for separate collection of household waste; waste sorting equipment; recycling equipment for rubber, polymer, plastic, paper, cardboard, glass, wood and metal products; biological waste recovery equipment; and industrial waste treatment equipment.
