Save the PLANET: 4th Conference and Exhibition on Waste Management, Recycling, Environment for South-East Europe

29-31 May 2013, Sofia, Bulgaria. Organizer: Via Expo

Your Shortcut to the South-East European Market

Growing waste is a huge challenge for the countries in South-East Europe. The ‘Save the Planet’ Conference will present the most modern environmental solutions and practices for solving the multiple problems. It is an efficient networking platform and will outline good opportunities of the private-public partnerships between business and  municipalities.  

‘Save the Planet’ Exhibition encourages the know-how transfer to the South-East European market, which is in need of advanced technology and equipment. The event presents latest solutions in waste management, recycling and environment and provides the participants with a quick market entry opportunity.

The 2012 Conference Edition

40 speakers from 18 countries took part in this 2012 edition and made presentations on hot topics related to waste management, recycling, waste prevention and waste-to-energy.

Program accents were:

  • Austria Showcase ‘Environmental Technologies’, Commercial Section to the Austrian Embassy in Bulgaria
  • European b2b Matchmaking Event in the Field of Waste Management, Recycling & Environment, organised by Enterprise Europe Network
  • Round Table with municipality representatives

Some Key Figures of the 2012 ‘Save the Planet’ and its parallel SEE Solar and EE & RE Exhibitions

  • 20% increase of the number of participants compared to 2011

Four Newly-Identified Genes Could Improve Rice
A Japanese research team have applied a method used in human genetic analysis to rice and rapidly discovered four new genes that are potentially significant for agriculture. These findings could influence crop breeding and help combat food shortages caused by a growing population.
“Amazing Protein Diversity” Discovered in Maize
The genome of the corn plant – or maize, as it’s called almost everywhere except the US – “is a lot more exciting” than scientists have previously believed. So says the lead scientist in a new effort to analyze and annotate the depth of the plant’s genetic resources.
Invasive Species Could Cause Billions in Agriculture Damages
Invasive insects and pathogens could be a multi-billion-dollar threat to global agriculture and developing countries may be the biggest target, according to a team of international researchers.
Genetic Research Can Significantly Improve Drug Development
With drug development costs topping $1.2bn (£850 million) to get a single treatment to the point it can be sold and used in the clinic, could genetic analysis save hundreds of millions of dollars?
What Makes a Good Scientist?
It’s the journey, not just the destination that counts as a scientist when conducting research.
