Northern Ireland Companies at Top Environmental Show

Ten Northern Ireland companies will be bidding for business at Ireland’s leading event for professionals in the waste, water and environmental industries from 8-9th March.

They will be exhibiting expert services and equipment at the Irish Waste, Water and Environmental Show (IWWE) at the RDS in Dublin on an Invest Northern Ireland group stand.

On show from Northern Ireland will be expertise in waste disposal, recycling, drain repair, trenchless technology, environmental remediation and innovative equipment for sewage treatment, grease removal and storage tanks for slurry and chemicals.

Alan Hingston, Invest NI’s Trade Director, said: “Environmental technology and products is a sector in Northern Ireland that we have identified as having significant growth potential. It’s a broadly-based and growing cluster in Northern Ireland within a global marketplace in which demand for cost-efficient solutions is developing fast.

“To assist the growth of the cluster, our strategic Trade development programme now features opportunities for companies to take part in major exhibitions for the sector and business missions to markets in which demand for environmental services and products is strong.

“IWWE is an important Irish event that will enable our companies to make useful business contacts and also to keep abreast of global market trends. The show, in addition, offers our companies an opportunity to develop partnerships and alliances with other Irish businesses that can be used in targeting other international markets,” he added.

IWWE is geared to environmental professionals in both public and private sectors in the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland. It also attracts professionals from outside Ireland.

Areas covered at the exhibition, which is held every 18 months, include air technology; analytical/laboratory services; chemical treatment; environmental management; filtration and screening; infrastructure/sewerage; effluent treatment; water systems; recycling and sludge treatment.
