The EU’s new circular economy plan aims to halve waste by 2030 and put industry at the centre. As a part of this process, SE Europe must change the way of production, consumption and trade, and the way it manages the waste. Waste prevention and absolute resource use reduction are both targets to be achieved.
In line with the global trends, seeSUSTAINtec (7 - 9 April, Sofia, Bulgaria) will welcome leading companies. They will present their latest sustainable solutions and engage the business and public attention. In today’s newsletter we are glad to announce some of them.
Have a very nice reading,

How Bulgaria can use the Austrian “Small and Enough” principle in its sustainable development
Interview with Ulrike Straka, Commercial Advisor at the Austrian Embassy
Ms. Straka, for the 11th consecutive year the Austrian pavilion of seeSUSTAINtec 2020 will present eco-innovations from Austrian companies. Why should we invest in them?
Austria is at the forefront of technologies that help protect the environment and improve sustainability - waste management, recycling, energy efficiency, renewable energy, air pollution technologies, and water management. Whether it is a family business with traditions or start-ups, there are many companies in Austria with high prestige and strong market presence around the world. For Austria, whose 5% of GDP is generated by the tourism industry, the Nature's Protection topic is not only a modern and up-to-date issue, but a problem that has been working for years and we are creating new products and technologies.
At the Austrian Pavilion and the Advantage Austria‘s booth, I would like to invite anyone with an interest in energy efficiency and waste management. The Austrian companies will present screening machines, vibroconveyors and magnetic separators, on board weighing and identification systems, biomass boilers, heating systems. More
