The 8th Azerbaijan International Environmental Exhibition Caspian Ecology 2017 has opened in Baku. The exhibition is one of the most significant events in the sphere of ecology being held in the Caspian and Caucasus regions. The event is supported by the Ministry of Ecology and Natural Resources of Azerbaijan and the IDEA Public Association (International Dialogue for Environmental Action), and its organizer is the Caspian Event Organizers company. It was joined by 53 companies from 7 countries, including Azerbaijani companies AZERSU, TEMIZ SHAHAR and SOCAR POLYMER, the State Agency for Alternative and Renewable Energy Sources. Participants also include companies from Britain, Turkey, Russia, Israel and Germany.
This event has already become traditional. The first exhibition was held on the order of the President of Azerbaijan in 2009. Today, we are holding the eighth exhibition. I would like to note that this is the only such exhibition in the Caucasus and the Caspian littoral countries. It is of great importance. The main goal of the exhibition is to demonstrate technologies in the field of ecology and environmental protection. For the first time, a conference focusing on environmental issues will take place during the exhibition this year, Deputy Minister of Ecology and Natural Resources Firdovsi Aliyev said.
In general, Caspian Ecology 2017 will display solutions in the area of efficient use of natural resources, the system of collection and utilization of solid waste, drawing people's attention to the solution of environmental problems. Participating companies will showcase equipment for the recycling and processing of waste, water purification systems and much more.
The international exhibition will also promote the expansion of business contacts, exchange of experience, familiarization with new equipment and industry trends and will give an extra impetus to the efforts aimed at improving the environment.
