The Eco Expo Asia event is an environmental trade platform that welcomes various industries to showcase their environmental products and solutions. This year the Eco Expo Asia will debut the: Smart Construction for Quite pavilion, which aims to discuss green building products and solutions for noise-related construction issues, a key concern for many rapidly developing cities and regions within Asia.

Amongst the highlights of the showcased products and innovations, will be two sets of hybrid construction excavators from renowned Japanese manufacturer, KOBELCO. These excavators produce low carbon emissions, very little noise and offer a demonstration that a more environmentally friendly solution for the construction industry, and other businesses beyond that, is possible.

Every year Eco Expo Asia welcomes overseas pavilions and large amounts of group participation, and 2018 will see the largest Chinese Pavilion to date. With the debut of exhibitors from Hunan and Inner Mongolia, as well as from a number of cities in the Greater Bay Area.

Returning Pavilions to the event include participants from Austria, Europe, Canada, State of Bavaria, Korea, Japan and Switzerland. The event allows for buyers and attendees to become aware of what market intelligence is available in exploring green products, for a more environmentally secure future.

Mr Urs Heutschi, CEO of Swissenviro, commented on the return of the Switzerland Pavilion: “Eco Expo Asia is a well-organised international trade fair in an important environmental market, covering relevant and current environmental issues with a strong focus on sustainability. As the organiser of the Swiss pavilion it is a pleasure to return and work. Each year there is a high demand from Swiss companies who wish to participate at the expo due to its regional location as well as the number of quality visitors from South China and Southeast Asia.”

The Smart Construction for Quiet symposium, will take place on the fair’s very first day, providing a unique opportunity for acoustic professionals, architects, site engineers, noise control practitioners, and build and civil contractors, to learn about the latest policies, and the best ways to tackle noise construction problems.

The full day event gathers experts on an international scale and gives industry leaders the change to deliver their knowledge to other, like-minded, establishments.

A wide range of environmental product categories will be featured, including green buildings and energy efficient green transportation, alongside water treatment and quality management.

After its debut at last year’s event, the Startup Zone will also make a re-appearance, aiming to encourage greener start-ups from new up and coming companies.
