Online seminar Spanish environmental sector

01.06.2009 By: Transfer based on Invest in Spain

The 15th of June 2009 an online event will be held about the business opportunities in the Spanish environmental and water sector.

This so-called webinar will highlight the areas where Spain faces significant challenges. As in reality it looks unlikely that Spain´s own resources will be sufficient for the future to introduce the number of changes required within the timeframes stipulated.

Foreign companies can benefit from these "insufficient Spanish resources" by providing solutions that feature techniques which offer characteristics that have advantages over current techniques.

Those opportunities lie in the fields of waste management, both municipal and hazardous, with particular emphasis on certain materials such as plastics and rubber, and including separation and energy generation.

In addition, the Spanish government has budgeted generous sums for soil remediation and certain elements of water distribution infrastructure that can offer interesting opportunities for companies that offer relevant products and services.

Keynote speakers of this event will be Mrs. Sharp (Invest in Spain), Mrs. Patricia Rullán (Tecnoma S.A) and Mr. Reig (13 12 agua y recursos s.l.).

The webinar is open to companies with technology or services that could enable them to take advantage of the following business opportunities:

  • Selective collection of organic MSW
  • Certain elements of end-of-life vehicles: glass, plastic, wood, textiles, foam, catalysers, oils and brake fluid
  • New ideas for end-of-life tires
  • Plastics treatment, especially agricultural plastics
  • Generation of biogas from livestock manure or landfill
  • Hazardous waste treatment including hospital waste
  • Soil remediation
  • Small, modular waste water treatment plants for small residential areas or those in protected rural or green belt zones
  • Remote control systems for pipe leakage etc.

The webinar can be followed online Monday, June 15th, 2009
9:00am – 10:30am EDT or 3:00pm- 4:30pm CET (GMT+1 )
