Bookmark and Share


South-East European Conference and Exhibition Scope: waste collection, transportation, waste treatment, landfill management and operations, waste-to-energy and recycling, services. Keeping pace with the market trends and demand ‘Save the Planet’ encourages the waste and recycling technology transfer to South-East Europe. It will provide participants with a quick market entry and opportunity to meet face-to-face state and municipal representatives e.g. government officials, mayors, ecologists; branch associations; investors and entrepreneurs; executives from the sectors: waste management, recycling, ecology and related industry branches. The 2014 Edition at a Glance • Austria was again a supporting country due to its remarkable achievements which were demonstrated at the traditional Austrian Pavilion. • Leading companies from Austria, Bulgaria, Denmark, Germany, Italy, Poland, Slovenia, Sweden and Switzerland showcased their latest industry developments. • Anis Trend, EREMA, Europlast Kunststoffbehälterindustrie, IFE Aufbereitungstechnik, Komptech, Herbold Meckesheim, International Baler Service, Lindner-Recyclingtech, Hitachi Zosen Inova, Tecnova, Untha Shredding Technology and Vecoplan Austria are among the exhibitors. The Conference 2014 Highlights • EU Waste Management Day, in partnership with ENEP & ACR+, provided all participants with key information on market entry, an opportunity to meet face-to-face state and municipal representatives and draw in expertise from across the European Union. An accent was also put on the Cohesion Policy 2014-2020 in SE Europe which have a significant impact on the speed of future investments in the waste management field. • Speakers from: EC DG Environment, EC DG REGIO, Association of Cities and Regions for Recycling and Sustainable Resource Management (ACR+) and the European Network of Environmental Professionals (ENEP). Bulgarian Association of Municipal Environmental Experts, Sofia Municipality, Bulgarian industrial Association, etc • Waste-to-Energy Workshop, in collaboration with WtERT, Greece, presented Global and Local Perspectives for New Waste-to-Energy Projects & Waste-to-Energy for Sustainable Economic and Social Development.

Open Source Seed Initiative – A Welcome Boost to Global Crop Breeding
A team of plant breeders, farmers, non-profit agencies, seed advocates, and policymakers have created the Open Source Seed Initiative.
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.
Scoliosis Linked to Disruptions in Spinal Fluid Flow
A new study in zebrafish suggests that irregular fluid flow through the spinal column brought on by gene mutations is linked to a type of scoliosis that can affect humans during adolescence.
More Research Needed to Ensure Gene Drive Safety
Gene-Drive modified organisms are not ready to be released into environment a new report calls for more research and robust assessment.
Genetic Basis of Petunia Variation Uncovered
A large international team of researchers, including scientists from Wageningen University, have now sequenced the entire genome of two different wild petunia species, and published this in the important scientific journal Nature Plants.
