Chengdu is set to welcome, 24-26 September 2020, the largest expo of green technology in Western China. The Chengdu International Environmental Protection Expo (CDEPE) is co-organised by the Sichuan Environmental Protection Industry Association (SCEPI) and Italian Exhibition Group (IEG) company, Europe China Environmental Exhibitions. The show is supported by the China Association of Environmental Protection Industry (CAEPI).
This year, the 16th edition of CDEPE is the first green expo being held live in Western China and, along with the exhibiting companies and industry members taking part, represents not only the resumption of international business, but also the opportunity for building a green future for Western China.
With over 15,000 industry members and professionals from the sector and 300 exhibiting companies, the 2020 edition of CDEPE will also tap into the professional skills and synergies of Ecomondo – IEG’s European expo for the green economy (at Rimini Expo Centre 3-6 November 2020, https://en.ecomondo.com.) Fabio Fava, professor of industrial and environmental biotechnologies at the faculty of Civil, Chemical, Environmental and Material Engineering of the University of Bologna and chairman of the Ecomondo Scientific Committee, and Francesco Fatone, professor of chemical and environmental engineering and head of the water area of the Ecomondo Technical Scientific Committee will both have speeches streamed live to China.
For companies, industry members and professionals wanting to take part remotely, a promotional exhibition corner has been set up at the expo, and companies have registered from Italy, USA and Japan.
The event will also host schools and universities from the province of Sichuan, as well as enterprises and institutions from the environmental protection sector, helping to build a bridge between innovation in entrepreneurship.
CDEPE is Sichuan’s first ‘zero-emission’ expo and will be held in compliance with the principles established by the Sichuan United Environment Exchange.
