Market Expansion Program: Recycling Technologies for Portugal’s Waste Management

From October 12 to October 15, 2021, as part of the Market Expansion Program for SMEs, a digital business initiation trip to Portugal is organized for German suppliers and service providers in the field of recycling technologies with a focus on plastics and organic waste.

Portugal’s waste management continues to face significant challenges, especially in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite recycling nearly 13% more in 2020 compared to the previous year, Portugal’s recycling rate was still considerably below the EU average, while the volume of municipal waste generated increased. Therefore, the Portuguese government is making efforts to significantly improve waste management, with the aim of increasing the recycling rate and reducing the amount of waste per person in the coming years.

As part of the implementation consortium, eclareon is supporting the organization and execution of this event.
