IFAT is the world's leading trade fair for water, sewage, waste, and raw materials management and takes place from May 5 - 9 at Messe München in Munich, Germany.


In 2012, almost 3000 exhibitors used the opportunity to present their companies and products to an international audience. Well over 100,000 visitors came to the last IFAT in 2012 to find out about the latest trends in the area of waste and raw materials management. With an exhibition area of 230,000 m2, IFAT 2014 is not only the most important trade fair but also the world's largest trade fair in this industrial sector.


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 waste bunkers, sorting systems and waste recycling plants 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.


Special applications

Alongside stationary extinguishing systems, Rosenbauer also offers special applications for other areas, such as cleaning rainwater tanks, for example. Find out more information here about special application cases.
