Sao Paulo, Brasil | May, 2023Waste Expo Brasil 2023 the leading trade fair for environmental sustainability, is issuing an urgent call to business leaders and companies in Brazil to confront the pressing challenges posed by the country's plastic problems. Waste Expo Brasil 2023 invites for a transformative event that will bring together industry experts, innovative businesses, and local associations to address the urgent need for plastic waste recycling and recovery, promote sustainability, and create a better world.


According to a publication by Agência Brasil, based on the Panorama of Solid Waste in Brazil 2022 by the Brazilian Association of Public Cleaning and Special Waste Companies (ABRELPE), it was revealed that the generation of plastic waste in Brazilian cities reached 13.7 million tons in 2022, equivalent to 64 kilograms per person for the year. 

The previous year's panorama indicated that only 23.4% of post-consumption plastic waste was recycled in Brazil. Additionally, a survey conducted by the Worldwide Fund for Nature (WWF), using data from the World Bank, positioned Brazil as the fourth-largest producer of plastic waste globally, following the United States, China, and India.


It is important to point out that plastic takes up to 400 years to decompose. Considering that a significant portion of the plastic waste generated by individuals decomposes slowly and is often not recovered, the world is currently facing a shortage of environmentally sustainable space for all of this global refuse. Plastic waste stands out as the most prevalent pollutant in the planet's water bodies, accounting for 48.5% of the materials entering the oceans. Every year, more than 3 million tons of solid waste ends up in rivers and seas, the equivalent of covering more than 7,000 soccer fields. About 80% of the total waste found in the oceans originates from human activities carried out on land, either on the coast or in regions were rivers flow into marine environments. This alarming situation calls for immediate action and collaboration among industry leaders and stakeholders to turn this crisis into an opportunity for positive change.

"We are pleased to once again present Waste Expo Brasil, the largest show for waste and recycling management and technologies in Latin America. The demand for creative solutions is more important than ever as the world grapples with increasing environmental problems. Waste Expo Brasil offers an exceptional opportunity to find ways to address these problems and shape the future trajectory of the waste and water management sector in Brasil and Latin America. It brings together international industry leaders, specialists, and decision-makers, making it a unique platform for collaboration."
