245 exhibitors | 86.500 sqm | 3 days

RecyclingAKTIV is a demonstration trade fair that provides both information and excitement in equal measure. Across three days, the event is the perfect platform for machinery such as metal and sorting facilities, presses, shredders, shears, crushers and screens, along with special equipment for material handling, transport and logistics. Exhibitors showcase their machinery and facilities in action across over 85.000 sqm of open-air exhibiton area on a realistic working environment.

RecyclingAKTIV takes place alongside TiefbauLIVE, the Demonstration trade fair for road construction and civil engineering. These twin events complement each other perfectly.

After a successful inaugural event at a new location and with a new organising team in 2017, the twin trade fair has found the perfect place to develop in Karlsruhe. In September 2019, the event was back on the exhibition grounds of the Karlsruhe Trade Fair Centre.

Review 2017

Take a look back at the successful debut event in Karlsruhe. Both the images and facts prove that moving the event to the new location was the right decision. From 27 to 29 April 2017, the international recycling and civil engineering industry came together in Karlsruhe as it hosted the twin trade fairs RecyclingAKTIV & TiefbauLIVE for the first time.

Helping your recycling business

Helping your recycling business

As the owner or manager of a recycling business, you need to make sure that your staff can perform their tasks safely and efficiently. This is the only way to ensure that your business remains competitive. After all, your customers expect a premium service. As a result, recycling businesses need to be constantly developing. At RecyclingAKTIV, you will find exhibitors whose equipment will allow you to work more efficiently and make your business operations more effective.

Shredders

Shredders

As a recycler, you usually have to cut waste into smaller pieces first in order to process it further. Machinery and system manufacturers have now developed a whole range of equipment for this purpose. You can find the perfect machine for every material flow, business size and output.

At RecyclingAKTIV, you will not only be able to see the latest machines from leading providers, but also watch them live in action. That is because the Karlsruhe Trade Fair Centre offers a unique outdoor exhibition space for both visitors and exhibitors. As a visitor, you benefit most of all from this. Not only will the event allow you to see exhibition pieces showcased in the indoor halls, it also gives you the opportunity to observe them at work.

Plants / Facilities

Plants / Facilities

Facility engineering for the recycling industry has seen many changes in recent years. Facilities have not only become more powerful and reliable, but also use less electricity and are less vulnerable to wear. They are also becoming ever easier to use. Furthermore, smart technology means that the digital revolution has reached the world of recycling too.

Bunkers and Conveyors

Bunkers and Conveyors

Conveyor systems are necessary for transporting waste from A to B within a facility. The mechanical and systems engineering companies exhibiting at RecyclingAKTIV have a variety of solutions in their product ranges. These include conveyor belts for recycling and the wood processing industry, as well as systems specially designed for transporting certain materials.

Sorting facilities

Sorting facilities

Waste is rarely delivered to recycling facilities in a uniform batch. This makes effective sorting facilities essential for achieving high-quality secondary raw materials.

Increasingly, waste has to be separated into different material groups in sorting facilities. Both the EU and the German federal government aim to increase the amount of waste material that is recycled and re-incorporated back into the economy. This also affects commercial waste. Germany’s new Commercial Waste Ordinance has been in force since 1 January 2019. It tightens the rules surrounding waste separation for commercial waste producers like workshops.

Screens

Screens

Screens help you process a wide range of waste materials. They are often used on construction sites, where they are perfect for separating various types of earth and mineral substances. Screening machines are also an essential piece of equipment for businesses that process wood, compost or clinker from waste incineration.

Our exhibitors’ latest models are robust and effective, and boast improved energy efficiency. They also require extremely little maintenance. This protects your bottom line and lets your business get on with the job.

See for yourself. Come to RecyclingAKTIV in Karlsruhe and watch demonstrations of the latest innovations in screening technology.

Presses

Presses

Logistics is a decisive cost factor in the waste disposal industry. It is therefore extremely important to fully exploit the limited space on board a truck. Recycling presses allow you to compress waste and material to enable cost-effective transport.

Waste containers that are not used as efficiently as possible are not just a problem for disposal companies. Customers also hate it when their skips and containers overflow. As a result, mobile waste presses not only optimise your logistics, but also help you keep your customers happy.
