  • Istanbul 2020

BIR performs many services for its members, but none of them are more visible than the BIR World Recycling Conventions. They help BIR fulfil its mission to help grow the global recycling industry, as well as offer to the members a unique global business platform.

BIR works throughout the year to create a policy environment that enables the industry to continue to achieve its vision of bettering the world through raw materials recycling, the basis for both industrial value creation and environmental protection.

This October, the world's premier recycling event awaits you in Istanbul from 12 to 14 October 2020.

Building on the success of the newly-created Opening Session at our last convention, this year’s edition is putting forward a key theme: the Social and Economic benefits our industry is creating worldwide. 

For the first time, the Convention presents a revised conference concept with a focus-day on Wednesday, dedicated to Plastics and Tyres & Rubber commodities. A special day-rate is offered to delegates particularly interested in these topics and wishing to attend only these sessions.

From shredding, screening and sorting equipment, container loaders and unloaders, telescopic cranes, industrial fans and recycling systems, material handling machines and mining equipment, to innovative solutions for the separation of valuable materials and dust collection plants - the BIR exhibition reflects the multifaceted dynamics of the recycling industry and offers great potential for networking and business making. 

We very much look forward to seeing you in Istanbul!
