Swiss Pavilion at IFAT Africa
IFAT Africa

Trade Fair for Environmental Technologies

July 09 – 11, 2019 - Johannesburg, South Africa

Market South Africa

Johannesburg, South Africa

IFAT Africa will take place in Johannesburg from July 9 to 11, 2019 for the third time, after its successful premier in 2015. The emphasis of IFAT Africa will be on water and sewage treatment, refuse disposal and recycling. In 2019, IFAT Africa will co-locate for the first time with analytica Lab Africa and food & drink technology Africa.

South Africa is one of the leading industrial economies on the continent. Wide-ranging water delivery and purification, solutions for the food and beverage industries, as well as laboratory technology, analysis, and other application areas are key issues in the future market of Africa. The premier industry trade fairs  IFAT Africa, analytica Lab Africa and food & drink technology Africa (fdt Africa) will be co-located in 2019, to showcase new innovations in the areas of environmental technologies, analysis and beverage & food. Synergies from the colocation will create added value for exhibitors and visitors.

South Africa determined to modernize environmental infrastructure

Environmental issues have become a matter of public concern, since environmental conditions have threatened Cape Town and other cities in this region lately. The south of the continent has been suffering for many months from a severe drought. South Africa, as are other affected neighboring countries, is determined to invest in water and waste water projects with an investment volume of 2.7 trillion Rand (over 180 billion CHF) to be carried out between now and 2035. Main projects include: making even greater use of surface water, desalinating seawater, reducing water losses and reusing waste water.

As the economy and population rate are rising the waste volume within the country is growing. The South African Department of Environmental Affairs has developed a National Waste Management Strategy to support the recycling of waste and an efficient use of resources. Therefore, instead of the previous strategy of waste disposal in landfills, South Africa is trying to find new solutions as waste separation, recycling, recycling of biowaste, thermal recycling and treatment of special waste and E-waste.

International Audience

Local and international representatives from the environmental sector will meet to network, discuss solutions, present the relevant technologies, exchange ideas and establish premium business contacts. Take the chance to establish yourself in the African environmental market.
