Street cleaning, maintenance, and winter road services
When it comes to street cleaning as well as highway maintenance and winter road services, the focus is on maintaining a high degree of safety and cleanliness without losing sight of cost-effectiveness. Suppliers of the vehicles, devices, and systems required to perform this task support these objectives by constantly developing new solutions. Visitors to IFAT have come to expect to find a comprehensive overview of the market.
When deicing roads in the winter, the general rule is to use as much deicing agent as is necessary to guarantee the safety of road traffic, but a small enough amount to keep the environmental impact and costs low. New scatter and spray technologies to help achieve this are on display at IFAT alongside the latest solutions for snow clearance.
Modern road sweepers should go about their tasks in our cities with minimal emissions and noise. Local authorities and street cleaning teams in municipal services are thus increasingly opting to use vehicles and machines powered by natural gas or fitted with electric or hybrid engines.
Products and exhibitors from the sector street cleaning, maintenance, and winter road services will be found at IFAT in halls C5 and C6, which can best be reached via the North and East Entrance.
Municipal vehicles at IFAT 2018
Diesel vehicles being put to the test. Municipalities and their vehicle fleets are facing huge challenges. But there are also alternative drive options. A novelty at this year's IFAT trade fair: Small municipal vehicles with propulsion and sweeping units that work entirely electrically. And converting the municipal vehicle fleets completely to e-mobility is just one option here.
