Eima Green: Back in Style
The 2012 edition of Eima International is marked by the return of Eima Green as a specialised salon within the fair, with all the equipment, machinery and technology needed for gardening and the care of parks and other green spaces. Leading manufacturers from all over the world will be on hand to show their new wares to professionals and specialists, but also with an eye on the broad public of home gardeners. There will be a number of conferences and workshops on topics such as park maintenance, sports grounds and landscape gardening and architecture, as well as the broader issues of health, quality of life and a ‘green’ view of the world. Eima Green offers a privileged vantage point for getting a direct and concrete knowledge of this universe and an intelligent reading of market trends in various parts of the world.
The specialised salon for components is one of the most original additions to Eima International’s panorama and makes a major event for ‘business to business’ contacts. Manufacturers from all over the world display an apparently limitless range of products for immediate incorporation in new designs or as spare parts and accessories, filling a role at the heart of mechanisation, a role that is to a large extent decisive in the evolution and perfection of the equipment and machinery used in agriculture and related ‘green’ activities. A large amount of space is devoted to integrated components which, given the synergies between mechanics, hydraulics and electronics, are also decisive in product innovation ensuring improvements in reliability, performance and energy efficiency as well as respect for the environment and safety. A novelty at this year’s Eima International is the decision to allot the day before the fair’s inauguration for meetings between components exhibitors and manufacturers showing finished products with a view to promoting business relations in the production and supply of machinery and tools.
Eima Energy, the Green Challenge
Agricultural and forestry biomass, residues from a range of activities and specific energy crops represent an economic resource for many countries and an increasingly important type of business for farmers. This specialised salon at Eima International is devoted at agro-energy and supplies a high-level panorama of the equipment and technology needed for the rational and economical management of sustainable product chains in the field of energy, in all geographical contexts, both for farms and on the industrial scale. Eima Energy’s open-air exhibition space is available for tests and demos of equipment and systems designed to convert biomass into energy. Covering over 4,000 m2, the demos will include working examples of the machinery needed for the whole wood to energy product chain, energy specific crops, the use of agro-industrial wastes and their transportation and treatment for energy uses. The exhibitors include manufacturers and distributors of gas and liquid bio-fuels, of the plant and technology involved in converting solid, liquid and gas bio-fuels into energy, and of the plant and technology for the production of solar, thermal and wind energy.
Eima MiA for Multifunctional Tech
Eima MiA is a specialised salon covering all the technology you might need for complementary country activities alternative to traditional farming. Grouped under the heading of ‘multifunctional agriculture’, they include agro-tourism and rural recreation, maintenance of the countryside and urban green spaces, and small-scale agro-industrial production. The relevant equipment and systems are displayed against a scenic backdrop inspired by the architecture and philosophy of green in the world. ‘Multifunctional agriculture’ is a catchword of great interest, especially for European agriculturists, thanks to the new guidelines of the EU’s agricultural policy in which growing resources are devoted to this ‘second pillar’ of the policy.
