The BW Expo is Brazil’s most important gathering for service and technology presentations regarding the sustainable management of wastes, water, wastewater, energy, and air. With an international exhibit hall and conference program, the biennial show brings together key companies and thinkers for networking and technology transfer.
BW Expo 2017 will be held in São Paulo 7 – 9 June 2017. With it co-located with the equally large Construction Expo 2017, the geosynthetics field will play an important role.
BW EXPO 2017 & GEOSYNTHETICS
The rapid growth of waste production in Brazil has presented significant challenges to national and regional policies for waste collection and management. The promulgation of the National Policy on Solid Waste (Law 12305/2010), which establishes several actions and goals, focuses on the decommission of out-dated municipal dumps, greater utilization of recycling or reuse of materials to minimize waste streams, and burial of all remaining wastes in properly designed landfill cells (including geosynthetics for environmental protection).
The exhibition at BW Expo 2017 will offer a great deal of needed options for public and private entities to improve their waste management practices. Drainage and venting solutions, geosynthetic lining and capping systems, groundwater monitoring solutions, solid waste handling equipment, slurry treatment machines, odor control solutions, and environmental sanitation treatment solutions are just some of the services and technologies that the expected 3000+ attendees will seek.
The event will feature a Geosynthetics Pavilion in the exhibit hall and a Geosynthetics Module in the co-located Sobratema Summit 2017 technical program.
