The International b2b Exhibition and Conference Save the Planet will open its doors after some months and will bring together the global business. Through the years the event established itself as the innovation and experience platform in waste management in South-East Europe.

Another Czech company is Dekonta which intend to expand its market share in the Balkans in projects related to the remediation of contaminated sites with hazardous substances (oil, chlorinated hydrocarbons and metals). A biofilter technology for capturing and purification of organic pollutants in the air will be presented also at the exhibition.

For the first time there will be a Hungarian National Participation, organized by the Hungarian Investment and Trade Agency, and Italian Pavilion.
