GMT Cleaner Planet Convention

Oceans free of plastics? Robots collecting garbage? Smart Cities?

Technology, ICT and big-data play an increasingly significant role with the current sustainability demands of our planet. Yet without the pioneers; evangelists and visionaries in the Waste-, Recycling- and Resource Industry, technology is of no use. The 13th of October 2016; GMT will host the Cleaner Planet Convention. An international and interactive event that will present innovations in the global Waste-Industry and application of ICT that accompany those.
