Messe München is expanding its international trade fair network in the
environmental technology sector with an additional event in South Africa:
The “IFAT Environmental Technology Forum – Water, Sewage, Refuse
and Recycling – Solutions for the Mining and Construction Industry” will
take place for the first time from September 15 to 18, 2015 co-located
with BAUMA CONEXPO AFRICA. Messe München International and its
subsidiary MMI South Africa (Pty) Ltd. are organizing the event.

Gerhard Gerritzen, Deputy Managing Director of Messe München,
explained the opportunities of the local market: "Mining in South Africa is
one of the 'key waste contributors'; according to the Organization for
Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), approximately 315
million tons of waste – mainly contaminated sewage – must be disposed
of every year. The IFAT Environmental Technology Forum picks up from
there and brings suppliers and consumers of innovative solutions and
technologies in the areas of water, sewage, refuse and recycling
together." The forum will also be supported by an adjacent exhibition.
The organizers expect area occupancy of around 3,000 square meters as
well as 60 exhibitors and 2,000 visitors.

The co-location with the already successfully established International
Trade Fair for Construction Machinery, Building Material Machines,
Mining Machines and Construction Vehicles is sure to provide substantial
synergy effects for both exhibitors and visitors. In spite of sitedependency
to BAUMA CONEXPO AFRICA, the IFAT Environmental
Technology Forum will be a component of the IFAT brand family. The
essential nomenclature points are water and sewage treatment, water
distribution and sewers, refuse disposal, air pollution control, noise
reduction, measuring, control and laboratory technology as well as
services such as science, research and technology transfer.

Forum is available online at www.ifatforum-africa.com.
