Producers and importers of electronic and electrical equipment of the Russian Federation started to implement Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR). Responsibility for their product is provided by the principles of a Circular Economy in accordance with technical standards and Best Available Technologies (BAT). Environmental and recycling charges are provided for WEEE and vehicle waste. Many activities on the market are carried out by the authorities, manufacturers, associations, collectors and processors.

EWEEES – is an efficient key-platform for developing and maintaining a dialogue with the authorities, producers, recyclers, scientists, associations, NGO’s and media in the field of WEEE management in the EAEU.
The EAEU is the new and fast growing recycling market which generates ca. 1’500’000 t of WEEE per year, with a value over 400’000’000 Euro.

ECATSS – is a new and growing platform for recycling solutions for Cars, Airplanes, Trains and Ships. This is a significant secondary materials flow with high values estimated over 10’000’000’000 million Euro each year.

Currently, the industry of production and consumption waste management is under the close supervision of the state, incentive measures are being developed. Environmental programs such as the National Project Ecology, Clean Country, Extended Environmental Responsibility of Producers and Importers, Best Available Technologies; as well as the decrees of the President of the Russian Federation V.V. Putin on ecology and environmental protection are being actively implemented.

The year 2019 will be very active in terms of renovation of technological and property funds of processing enterprises. A key role is assigned to the Waste Management industry. The market of secondary raw materials is fast-growing and promising; the secondary resources are involved in the turnover within the country and are exported. As a result Russian enterprises have an increased demand for the purchase of new equipment.

Traditionally, the Congress provides a great amount of expert information and innovations. Therefore, the key players use it to build a strategy for the upcoming year. That results in a high percentage of transactions concluded directly at the exhibition as a survey of participants shows.

We will be glad to make your Business a part of the Strategy for waste management and environmental improvement in Russia!
