  • Sectors that participate
    Throughout its existence, this trade fair has shown a great capacity for aggregating a very wide range of knowledge and experience. This is amply demonstrated by the large number of associations, federations, entities and bodies not only taking part in the fair but also involving themselves in it, forming part of its organisation with working sessions, lectures and seminars. As a result, SRR has become the main trade rendezvous for the recovery and recycling sector held in Spain.

    SRR 2018 featured a wide range of machinery and technological services dedicated to the decontamination, recovery, fragmentation, recycling and valorisation of all types of waste, as well as to logistics and the activities of environmental certification and verification bodies, environmental consultancies and other complementary activities.

    The wastes covered by this Trade Fair include disused vehicles, plastics, textile, glass, wood, ferrous and non-ferrous metals, batteries, packaging, tyres, construction and demolition waste, organic waste, hazardous waste and paper and cardboard.
  • A key event
    Under SRR, the Spanish Recovery and Recycling Federation, FER, will hold its annual congress, which has consolidated its position as the main and most important forum for the whole sector.

    An annual event which will be attended by the main representatives of the leading companies in the sector, and in which the latest developments in recycling machinery and technology will be revealed.

    The annual FER congress will also provide a great opportunity to find out about the sector’s concerns at first hand and to discover new expertise, thanks to the important issues discussed in the various round table sessions that have been scheduled.
