When the FILTECH 2022 opens its doors in Cologne next Tuesday, March 8, we will be right in the middle of it all.
It is the first trade fair at which we present Wasser 3.0 detect | remove | reuse and also the first time that our research and development work will be so closely interlinked with our statutory educational and educational mission. The latter as part of the FILTECH Innovation Forum Stop Microplastics Pollution!
It's going to be exciting. We are excited. We are looking forward to it!
: We can be found in Hall 7, at the conference and in the Innovation Forum
At FILTECH, we will give several insights into our work for waters without microplastics and micropollutants. We will present our solutions for the detection, removal and reuse of microplastics, plus circular process designs and ecological-economic levers.
In addition to our booth in hall 7 (booth L35), where we together with our cooperation partners abcr GmbH and smo GmbH will show a 3D model of one of our systems for the first time, you will find us
on Wednesday at 13.00 at the keynote by Dr. Katrin Schuhen entitled "Closing the gaps: How to stop microplastics pollution",
on Thursday at 10.45 a.m. in room 1 at our presentation on our removal technology Wasser 3.0 PE-X® and
on all days certainly also at the Innovation Forum Stop Microplastics Pollution! in Hall 7.
What is to be expected in the area of the Innovation Forum Stop Microplastics Pollution!, we have described in this separate blog post.
One of our major goals is to advance the topic of microplastics in a solution-oriented way based on dialogue and, above all, a cooperative manner. Anyone who knows us and our values and mindset knows that we want to work and act in exactly this way with our business model of a not-for-profit GmbH. People and environment are our top priorities. Be it in the field of research and development or in the field of education and awareness raising - we work for positive changes and added value for society.
More sustainability along the entire plastics supply chain?!
Legislation on plastics and microplastics has taken a huge leap forward this week. At a meeting of the UN Environment Assembly (UNEA) in Nairobi, Kenya, countries passed a resolution on the first treaty that directly tackles the 9 billion tons of plastic produced since the beginning of the plastic age in the 1950s.
On March 2, 175 countries agreed on a legally binding global agreement to end the plastic pollution crisis by addressing the entire plastics supply chain. Work on the implementation of the agreement by 2024 is now beginning.
In her keynote at FILTECH, Katrin Schuhen will also comment on this new political goal.
