Sorigué debates responsible development and sustainability at Municipalia 2019

October 22, 2019

As part of its participation at the leading municipal equipment and services fair, the group is featuring a series of lectures given by external experts and Sorigué professionals.

Lleida, 22 October – The Sorigué business group participates once again as an exhibitor at Municipalia, the international municipal equipment and services fair held from Tuesday 22 October to Thursday 24 October at the Fira de Lleida at an indoor booth in Pavilion 3, booth number 370, and at an outdoor booth, space E63.
For the three days of the fair, the group has organised a series of lectures by outside experts and professionals from the group, covering a variety of topics including Sorigué urban services business line contracts from a responsible and sustainable development perspective.
Each day has a different thematic focus: Tuesday 22nd, sustainable planning; Wednesday 23rd, responsible development; and Thursday 24th, waste management. On the final day, a roundtable will be held on the implementation and consolidation of the door-to-door waste collection services performed by Sorigué in 22 municipalities throughout the Segrià district, the largest of its kind in Catalonia.
At its outdoor booth, the Group has an area dedicated to presenting its city services and carrying out demonstrations and practical applications of its products from its Materials area, with a special emphasis on asphalt applications.  It will also offer demonstrations of its technical cleaning and pipe restoration system, Hidrojet, and its graffiti cleaning service.
