Making economic development more sustainable

The reduction of waste imports by China left little doubt that the economic powers in The Middle Kingdom have resolved to develop in a more sustainable manner. Among other things, this includes restructuring their own recycling industry, in which waste is seen as a valuable commodity. Furthermore, since the start of January, the government has required companies that contribute directly to air, water and noise pollution to pay their way. The need for environmental solutions in China has never been higher, and IFAT is responding with a trio of trade fairs in 2019. These are Asia’s top trade fair, IE expo China, held in Shanghai; its sister fair IE expo Guangzhou, covering southern China; and, for the first time, IE expo Chengdu, the new solutions platform serving western China.
