Mexico City, August 30th, 2019.- The XXVII edition of THE GREEN EXPO® and the CONIECO International Environmental Congress, the fourth edition of Aquatech Mexico, and the first edition of Intersolar Mexico will be held simultaneously September 3rd to 5th, 2019 at the World Trade Center and Pepsi Center in Mexico City; international events that conform a one-of-a-kind sustainability week in Mexico and Latin America to tackle Climate Change in the journey towards a Circular Economy.   

Attending the official presentation of this major event were José Navarro Meneses, CEO of Tarsus México; Carlos Sandoval Olvera, President of the National Board of Industry Ecologists (CONIECO in Spanish); M.Sc. Odón de Buen; Managing Director of the National Board for Efficient Use of Energy (CONUEE); Klaus Rudischhauser, ambassador and  Leader of the European Union Delegation in Mexico; and Héctor Olea, Phd, President of the Solar Energy Mexican Association (ASOLMEX).

“The impact of these international events will serve as a milestone in our country and in the region”, said José Navarro; “we expect more than 13,000 attendants from 35 countries and the participation of 350 exhibitors from 26 countries to promote business generation and offer the most innovative solutions, brands, products, and sustainable technology in the supply sector; and water treatment; waste management and recycling; solutions for efficient energy usage and power generation using renewable sources; leading technology, and key information for the development of green building projects, among others”, Navarro added. 

THE GREEN EXPO®emphasizes the first participation of the European Union, which purpose is to develop and analyze the most pressing topics in Circular Economy to tackle Climate Change, as well as the participation of international delegations from Germany, the US, Italy, and Canada, as well as specialized sectors in Cogeneration, Waste, and Recycling from Austria, Brazil, China, South Korea, Spain, France, India, England, Mexico, Portugal, Czech Republic, Sweden, and Switzerland.

With 27 years of experience, THE GREEN EXPO® remains a key arena and B2B leader platform to find solutions to tackle Climate Change, which has become one of the greatest challenges of humanity, requiring immediate action to prevent an increase in global temperature of up to two grades by 2050.

“The European Union is currently in a transition from a linear economy to a circular economy aimed at benefiting the environment and creating the conditions required for a socially-sustainable economy. Our goal is to become the first continent to reach climate neutrality by 2050; to become the leaders in circular economy and clean technologies to save the oceans from having more plastic than fish in 2050. Additionally, companies that adopt a circular model are saving up to 600 billion Euros per year”, said Klaus Rudischhauser.

With regards to training and exchange of knowledge, the XXVII International Environmental Congress of the National Board of Industry Ecologists (CONIECO, in Spanish) is the main academic forum to analyze sustainability strategic topics with regional and national relevance, with the participation of national and international experts.

“The involvement of academia experts, such as the Mexican College of Civil Engineers and the College of Environmental Engineers, in our congress foreshadows positive results, and evidence of this is the interest of students that come from top universities in Mexico who are highly interested in environmental issues and areas of opportunity with an outlook into the future”, said Carlos Sandoval.

The International Environmental Congress highlights topics such as resilience in cities regarding Climate Change, sustainability efforts; success stories such as Building Projects using Sargassum Bricks; sustainability with plastics and Circular Economy, Circularity of plastic and electronic waste, implementation projects in Latin America and India; as well as an Environment Board with representatives from Guanajuato, Jalisco, and Quintana Roo; among others.

As for energy topics, other conferences will take place; for instance, Impact of Energy Efficiency in the National Energy Consumption, with the participation of the National Commission for Efficient Energy Usage (CONUEE, for its acronym in Spanish); Contribution of Renewable Energies to Clean Energy Generation presented by CESPEDES; as well as Electrical Energy Generation through Isolated Supply and Local Generation, presented by the Energy Regulatory Commission (CRE, for its acronym in Spanish).

In this regard, M.S. Odon de Buen mentioned that “nowadays, energy efficiency has resulted in energy savings equivalent to the total global energy output for 20 years. Mexico must improve automotive transportation technologies, increasing supply, but reducing consumption to meet energy efficiency demands.”

The purpose of the fourth edition of Aquatech Mexico is to jointly seek efficient alternatives to address hydric stress. This international exhibition displays state-of-the-art technology that favors smart handling and water supply. This year will have the presence of international speakers from 21 countries across the globe: Germany, Austria, Brazil, Canada, China, Denmark, United States, Spain, France, The Netherlands, Hungary, India, Japan, Mexico, Poland, United Kingdom, Switzerland, Taiwan, Turkey, Ukraine, and Vietnam.

A leading international B2B and B2G event for the water industry that, through its conference program, seeks to share experiences and success stories. These conferences include the participation of renowned experts, including The water company and sanitation of the XXI century; Hydric Plan 2019-2024; the Israel Embassy will present its own experience, Circular Economy in the hydric segment, among others.

On the exhibition floor, Aquatech Mexico will have the participation of international delegations, including the United States and the Netherlands, as well as the Water Environment Federation Delegation; not to mention the Aquastage, which is an area for featured presentations and workshops, as well as Wetskills for young professionals eager to work in mixed teams to find cross-sectional solutions for water issues.

For launching Intersolar Mexico, which is a world-class leading event focused on energy segments, photovoltaic generation, and energy storage, manufacturers, suppliers, distributors, and business partners will join-in to contribute with their insights, as well as to work on developing the advantages of solar energy.

According to Dr. Florian Wessendorf, Managing Director of Solar Promotion International GmbH and Daniel Strowitzki, CEO of Freiburg Management and Marketing International GmbH (FMMI), THE GREEN EXPO®, Intersolar Mexico will offer the industry a suitable platform for renewable energies and clean technologies in Mexico. They mentioned that “the co-located events will be the largest event for enery professionals in Mexico and will bring together more companies from across the solar value chain than any other event in the region. Intersolar Mexico attendees can expect an innovative show as well as a high-impact conference and workshop program with national and international industry experts”.

Currently, Mexico is one of the main countries in solar deployment and potential for dynamic growth. The goal for 2024 is that 35% of its energy comes from renewable sources and 50% as of 2050, not to mention that, Latin America will represent more than 10% of the global solar demand for 2022.

Along the same line of thought, Dr. Hector Olea mentioned that, in 2013, the first solar power plant in the country was put into service with an output of 30 megawatts; six years later, it now has 50 photovoltaic power stations that supply electrical energy to the people. Furthermore, 85% of the national territory presents optimal conditions for electricity generation through solar technology.

“The distributed generation represents one of the fastest-growing industries in the last few years. Only few months ago, the number of contracts achieved surpassed 100 thousand, now there are 112 thousand contracts for the distribution of generated energy, most of which are residential, but also include commercial and industrial clients, more so for Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs). Additionally, from 2010 to date, the cost of technology to generate electricity has decreased by 80%”, mentioned Olea.

This is how more comprehensive international platforms for sustainability, water industry, environment, renewable energies, and waste handling, among others, are set to take place in the same location; throughout three key days with 124 conferences, 162 speakers, and more than 75 hours of training to learn about strategies, innovation, technology, and success stories in a global scale for all industries looking into profitable and sustainable solutions within a Circular Economy.
