The National Forum «Waste Management in Ukraine: Legislation, Economics, Technology» (organized by Ukrainian Ecological League, Center of Municipal Technologies, Media DAK) became the leading event of the business program. The most important issues were raised, such as legal regulation of waste management due to decentralization trends and sustainable development of local communities, tariff policy in waste management in certain local communities.

During the event the scientific-practical conference «Environmental Safety» took place (organized by Informational and Educational Aarhus Center, State Environmental Academy of Postgraduate Education and Ministry of Ecology and Natural Resources of Ukraine), where relevant issues of waste management were discussed, including dangerous wastes, recycling profitability, environmental safety and other urgent topics that aroused interest of professionals.

In the framework of the Trade Fair the round table «Key Aspects of Drinking Water Supply Quality to the Population of Ukraine» was held (organized by the Ministry of Regional Development, Construction, Housing and Municipal Services of Ukraine), devoted to solving of environmental problems such as drinking water quality, sanitary, use of chlorine for water disinfection, etc; as well as Conference of innovation projects «New Power Energy. Eco-safety. Energy Efficiency» (organizer – «Environmental Initiatives Support Center»).

Special attention was paid to innovative solutions on water resources protection and disposal of hazardous wastes. A wide diversity of equipment and technologies was presented by exhibitors, namely SUEZ Environnement (France) – resource protection and recovery, renewable energy from waste and recycling; Tarkom Ecoservice (member of Association of entrepreneurs in hazardous waste management) – recycling company for waste I-IV classes of danger using thermal disposal method; Gloria-Eco offered an alternative to gas – high-quality, less expensive, liquid and solid pyrolysis fuel made of waste tire covers and other rubber. At exposition of Eco-Energoprom the visitors were introduced with projects for collection, preparation and utilization of recycled materials, used tires and hazardous wastes. Team of Spetsenergocomplex provided consulting service on scientific and technical permission documents in industrial ecology due to the current legal requirements of Ukraine. National Technical University of Ukraine «Kyiv Polytechnic Institute» and National University of Life and Environmental Sciences of Ukraine presented research and development projects on efficient environmental management, environmental monitoring of air and soil treatment.

Since electric vehicles become more popular in Ukraine, this trend was observed in many developed countries long ago. Unfortunately, Ukraine is an energy-dependent country, and the use of electric cars would help to reduce this dependence. The increasing cost of fuel, together with benefits of electric transport (comfort, ecological compatibility and growing availability), have forced Ukrainians to prefer electric cars.

The high interest of visitors, caused by electric vehicles, wasn’t surprising. The following models were exhibited: Nissan e-NV200 with zero harmful emissions and low operating costs; «bestsellers» – Nissan LEAF; Renault Fluence ZE, which are able to pass 185 km using one battery charge; and Tesla Model S, with powerful electric motor Tesla. Kharkiv Tractor Plant, PJSC also presented its latest development – innovative electric tractor «Edisson». The tractor will become the first Ukrainian serial machine of this type. The model was designed jointly with AutoEnterprise and is unique in the world. Machine is equipped with 24-kW lithium-ion batteries and electric motor by Nissan Motors with capacity of 35 hp. Full battery charge needs 2-4 hours from the charger and 8-10 hours from 220V unit.

On the results of trade fair, participants noticed the necessity of this annual event for all branches of economy, since introduction of innovative environmental technologies is one of the main solutions for environmental protection.
