Spread over more than 130,000 square metres at Rimini Expo Centre, the two events will represent the main pillars of the green economy: the circular (bio)economy, waste and wastewater management and valorisation, soil and sea regeneration, sustainable blue growth and hydrogeological risk, together with solutions and technologies in the field of solar power and storage systems, onshore and offshore wind power, energy efficiency in industry and buildings and a focus on sustainable cities and electric mobility.
