Sequence: 8th edition
Organizer: Via Expo
Venue: Sofia, Inter Expo Center

The 2015 edition of Save the Planet proved its position as one of the business platforms in Bulgaria and South-East Europe. It presented new technologies covering the whole process of waste management: treatment, transport, collection, disposal, recovery and recycling. The countries from the Region are facing numerous challenges to improve their resource efficiency and to achieve the high European waste management targets. They are streamlining the legislation and introducing new facilities in cities, landfill sites and industry enterprises.

The 2015 Edition at a Glance

Once again Austria was a supporting country due to its remarkable achievements. They were demonstrated at the traditional Austrian Pavilion, the realization of which was supported by ADVANTAGE AUSTRIA Sofia

The exhibition featured a strong international presence - 71% of the participants were from abroad. Direct exhibitors from Austria, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Greece, Germany, Denmark, Italy, Poland, the Netherlands, Slovakia and Switzerland showcased their latest solutions.

A new highlight during 2015 was the Italian Participation.

A tale of five cities: Using recycling frameworks to analyse inclusive recycling performance

‘Recycling’ is a source of much confusion, particularly when comparing solid waste systems in high-income countries with those in low- and middle-income countries. Few analysts can explain why the performance and structure of recycling appears to be so different in rich countries from poor ones, nor why well-meaning efforts to implement recycling so often fail...

Designing effective partnerships for waste-to-resource initiatives: Lessons learned from developing countries

Cities in developing countries across Asia-Pacific are struggling to effectively manage municipal solid waste (MSW). This is especially the case in secondary cities and small towns, which often face a lack of resources and know-how. Because the waste stream in these cities is usually high in organic content (50–80%) and recyclable materials (10–20%), waste-to-resource initiatives are viable options for sustainable MSW management...

Evaluation of municipal solid waste management performance by material flow analysis: Theoretical approach and case study

The main role of a waste management plan is to define which is the combination of waste management strategies and method needed to collect and manage the waste in such a way to ensure a given set of targets is reached. Objectives have to be sustainable and realistic, consistent with the environmental policies and regulations and monitored to verify the progressive achievement of the given targets...

Innovative market-based policy instruments for waste management: A case study on shredder residues in Belgium

In an increasingly complex waste market, market-based policy instruments, such as disposal taxes, can give incentives for sustainable progress while leaving flexibility for innovation. However, implementation of disposal taxes is often criticised by domestic waste handlers that fear to be outcompeted by competitors in other countries...

Assessment of occupational safety risks in Floridian solid waste systems using Bayesian analysis

Safety risks embedded within solid waste management systems continue to be a significant issue and are prevalent at every step in the solid waste management process. To recognise and address these occupational hazards, it is necessary to discover the potential safety concerns that cause them, as well as their direct and/or indirect impacts on the different types of solid waste workers...

Organoclay nanocomposites of post-industrial waste poly(butylene terephthalate) from automotive parts

Polymeric nanocomposites are novel materials of huge interest owing to their favourable cost/performance ratio with low amount of nanofillers, improved thermal resistance, flame retardancy and mechanical properties in relation to their matrices. In this work, composites based on post-industrial waste or primary recycled poly(butylene terephthalate) and 5 wt...
