The IGEM 2010 was a great success for Danish companies. During 14 -17 October the event attracted nearly 80.000 visitors and created much attention and activity for the Danish Embassy’s participating companies.
During the four day event the DANIDA pavilion was visited by many important persons such as Malaysia’s Prime Minister, the King, Minister of Energy, Green Technology and Water Datuk Peter Chin, Department Minister of Energy in Brunei and The Vice Director of China’s National Energy Administration together with the Director of China’s New Energy and Renewable Energy.
The pavilion was very well visited by IGEM’s approx 80.000 visitors in total which created a lot of activities for our participating companies.
Activities at the DANIDA pavilion included a Technical seminar with company presentation and presentation of the four exhibiting components under the DANIDA programme; the book launch of “Wonderland ..beyond the bin” a book that documents the solid waste management in Malaysia by the Ministry of Housing and Local Government.
An entire day where used by the environmental NGO umbrella organisation MENGO had arranged various activities such as Launching of Books on Indigenous People, SEMAI Traditional Dance and Video showcase of Micro-Hydro Electric project (Tahabas).
The pavilion also had a great response in the EU Pavilion where three Danish companies exhibited. Here the three companies stole much attention with technologies to manufacture valuable products from palm oil waste, composting containers and biodegradable household products.
