Promoting Swedish Solid Waste Solutions

Brazil produces over 60 million tons of domestic solid waste every year and less than half of it is adequately disposed of. The federal government is confronting this challenge with legislation forcing the municipalities to close open dumps. This law has spurred demand for more environmental friendly waste management solutions.

Aiming to support Swedish companies in taking part of these opportunities, Business Sweden organised a Swedish pavilion at the RWM exhibition – Brazil’s trade fair dedicated to resource efficiency and waste management solutions. Last year’s edition attracted over 2 200 buyers and influencers as well as 70 exhibitors from 16 countries. This September, two of the most relevant global conferences in the segment, International Solid Waste Association (ISWA) and the IPLA Global Forum, are organised simultaneously which is expected to raise the number of visitors. It will also give the national and international government leaders, industry experts and key decision makers an opportunity to share experiences, perspectives, trends and case studies related to waste management.

Avfall Sverige, the Swedish Waste Management and Recycling Association, will support four Swedish companies in the pavilion showcasing how Sweden manages its waste and present solutions that Sweden can offer. The goal is to increase awareness of and to position Swedish solutions as efficient and cost-effective options for key decision makers in the sector.
