IFAT 2024: The circular economy is climate action

REMONDIS will be showcasing a wide range of activities from its business sectors recycling, service and water

The wait is over, IFAT 2024 is in the starting blocks: From 13 to 17 May 2024, Munich will once again be the venue for the world’s leading trade fair for water, sewage, waste and raw materials management. The many thousands of trade fair visitors can look forward to a packed trade fair programme with interesting presentations and discussion rounds, as well as exhibition areas worth seeing.

As one of the world’s leading private recycling, service and water companies, REMONDIS will also be there and present a wide range of activities across all of its business sectors. We would like to present some of our agenda highlights here. We will, however, also be providing up-to-date insights into what is happening at the trade fair on our LinkedIn channel.

If you want to keep up to date with environmental technologies, you shouldn’t miss IFAT in Munich. In 2024, the world’s leading trade fair will once again provide the industry with plenty of ideas and inspiration. Ever since the EU explicitly defined the circular economy as one of the five pillars for combating climate change in its Green Deal, it has become clear: recycling is active climate protection. This connection will also be one of the key themes at IFAT 2024. REMONDIS is making this clear by summarising all of its trade fair activities under the motto “The circular economy is climate action”.

Main stand: Hall A6, Stand 251/350

As always, the REMONDIS Group’s main stand in Hall 6 will be the central meeting point where representatives from the three business sectors – recycling, service and water – will be on hand to welcome and talk to visitors.

As was the case two years ago, the SDG pillars will be a central element at the main stand: These are 17 pillars in different colours, each equipped with a button, and six monitors hanging above them. In addition to the entertainment factor, the pillars and monitors primarily provide information about the measures REMONDIS is taking to achieve the 17 Sustainable Development Goals. The SDGs summarise the goals with which international climate and environmental protection is to be advanced and the extent to which developing countries are to be supported by industrialised countries – on an economic, ecological as well as social level.

Physical experience of climate change scenarios

For REMONDIS, sustainability is not just a buzzword but the core business of the company. The “We are climate protection” campaign was launched some time ago to emphasise the importance of the circular economy in the battle against climate change. The aim: to raise awareness of the fact that the circular economy in general and REMONDIS in particular are important players in the battle against climate change. Simple facts about climate change already attract attention. However, it is even more powerful to experience possible scenarios first hand. REMONDIS has now developed an experience container as part of its climate protection campaign.

Through immersive effects, the consequences of climate change are made physically tangible in the experience container. The aim is to move from the abstract discussion of the connection between climate change – resource conservation – circular economy to a sensory impression that leaves a lasting impression and anchors the messages of our industry in people’s minds in the long run. The experience container will be first presented at IFAT 2024 in Munich:

The automotive cycle

In addition to the main stand and the experience container, REMONDIS will also be taking part in various panel discussions, presentations and special areas. We would like to take this opportunity to mention the spotlight area “Circularity for E-Mobility”. Here, our subsidiary TSR, together with partner companies and associations from the automotive, metal and plastics industries, is showcasing successful lighthouse projects that show how the life cycles of automobile components are already being effectively and sustainably closed today. The entire automotive cycle is illustrated: from dismantling end-of-life vehicles, to recycling the end-of-life materials they contain, all the way through to reusing the recovered raw materials to produce new vehicles.

You can find the spotlight area “Circularity for E-Mobility” here: Hall A6, Stand 129/228
