Circular economy and the development of renewable energies are two of the great changes under way in the green economy universe. Both will be featured in key showcases at Ecomondo and Key Energy, two trade shows organised by the Italian Exhibition Group (IEG) at Rimini Expo Centre (Italy) from 6th to 9th November. At the 22nd edition of Ecomondo, the core focus will be on the circular economy, while the 12th edition of Key Energy confirms its role as a business catalyser and driving force for all the increasingly strategic sectors of renewable energies and energy efficiency. The events, held simultaneously, will occupy 129,000 square metres of exhibit space ready to host over 1,300 companies, with a participation that last year rose to 116,000 attendees and over 90,000 qualified buyers.
In advance of the showcase, Professor Fabio Fava revealed an overview of the North African area priorities and needs (available at the link http://bit.ly/Ecomondo_Fava) to be discussed at Ecomondo 2018: The effects of environmental changes in the Mediterranean area on the local fishery, aquaculture and aquatic biodiversity will be the main subjects of the conference Marine Bioresources in a Changing Mediterranean Sea. The Mediterranean area needs a more sustainable exploitation of fish stocks and aquaculture systems. The conference Sustainable Fishery and Aquaculture: New Strategies and Technologies will be focused on new technologies improving the sustainability. Both events are scheduled on 8 November 2018.The major problems associated with the plastics in the Mediterranean sea and the possible alternatives and EU available policies on the subject will be presented together with experts, policy makers and key representatives of industrial sectors, public institutions, the EU commission and the Parliament at the conference Single Use Plastics and Marine Litter in Mediterranean Sea: Problems and Solutions, scheduled on 9 November 2018.
