Waste Expo 2012 – Where Environment Meets Innovation

May 7, 2012

5 Austrian companies exhibit at the largest waste & recycling event in the U.S.

This year’s show took place from May 1 -3 at the Las Vegas Convention Center and once again featured over 500 exhibiting companies and a comprehensive conference program with more than 40 workshops, seminars and sessions. Among the exhibitors were the following five Austrian companies represented by their US subsidiaries:

Komptech USA Inc. - Styrian specialist for the treatment of solid waste and biomass
Lindner America LLC - specializing in shredding technology and alternative fuel processing systems
Palfinger North America Group - manufacturer of truck-mounted material handling equipment
UNTHA America - shredding technology expert for a wide range of applications from Salzburg
Zimmer America

The Waste Expo serves both the private and public sectors. Exhibitors were from the public sector as well as small, medium and large private sector companies in waste management and manufacturers and suppliers from all over the world. Visitors to the expo were very open to innovative solutions for recycling and energy saving. Recycling (of municipal solid waste MSW and construction and demolition waste C&D) and waste-to-energy (waste incineration, landfill gas-to-energy, cogeneration, etc.) are the prevailing and upcoming trends in the waste management sector.
Due to the adaptation of stricter waste management laws and regulations, the demand for green technologies for re-use, landfilling, and waste-to-energy applications is increasing. The lack of technical know-how in the U.S. may also drive the demand for technologies from the international marketplace.
