This year, the exhibition area of IFAT has been expanded to 260,000 m2 for the first time.

Fire protection in the recycling industry

Fire protection is a very important topic, especially in the waste management industry, as fires in recycling systems could have devastating consequences. In the waste bunkers, sorting systems and waste recycling plants of the waste management industry, for the most part large quantities of waste are stored as well as processed. This poses several risks: many materials are highly flammable. Because of the large volume the fire load is correspondingly large. In recycling plants there is also the danger of spontaneous combustion. And last but not least, there are special challenges with regards to fire protection, such as conveyor belts, for instance, which transport waste in the plants. In the event of a fire, enormous expenses will accrue due to manufacturing downtime and reconstruction. Without preventative fire protection, it could also be the case that no adequate insurance coverage is provided. Waste fires often also pose an environmental risk.
