In recent years, waste disposal has shifted its emphasis away from traditional disposal operations to evolve into an innovative and dynamic sector that serves as a reliable supplier of high-quality secondary raw materials to industry.
Accordingly, the key focus at the world’s leading environmental technology trade fair, IFAT 2014, is on technical innovations, future- and practice-oriented solutions and cutting-edge expertise. Mercedes-Benz vehicles provide the backbone, ensuring the mobility of many private- and public-sector enterprises. From 5 to 9 May 2014, Daimler AG will be in the spotlight at the “Messe München” exhibition grounds in Munich, presenting specialised vehicles for tailor-made disposal solutions inside at the Mercedes-Benz stand and partners’ stands as well as on the grounds outside. Decision makers, purchasers and practicians from the public service, waste disposal and utilities sectors will be able to view its new products in the areas of multifunctional trucks, light duty trucks and vans.
The focus will be on the innovative engine technology of the Euro VI model series, future-viable drive systems and, last but not least, comfortable and safe workplaces for truck and van drivers. Various bodybuilder partners will additionally be presenting efficient solutions involving industry-specific bodies and conversions.
The supporting programme at the IFAT covers an exceptionally broad range of subjects. Experienced practicians, influential national and international organisations, authorities and ministries will all help to make the IFAT the defining international event for the industry once again in 2014. The programme includes forums with company and panel sessions, country specials, expert discussions, special events and practice-oriented live demonstrations on the exhibition grounds outside.
