Environmental protection and regeneration. From ´trenchless technologies´ to the remediation and redevelopment of polluted sites and the regeneration of coastlines, the very best of authentic, made-in-Italy, environmental protection solutions that provide planning services for major works, will all be on show in Rimini. Food waste. In order to achieve objective 12 of the 2030 Agenda, institutions, companies and citizens must reduce food waste: Ecomondo will present the latest technologies and good practices that combine food quality and waste reduction in the pre- and post-consumption phases.
