RecyclingAKTIV & TiefbauLIVE

Welcome to RecyclingAKTIV - throughput is a top priority here!

RecyclingAKTIV is a demonstration trade fair that provides both information and excitement in equal measure. Across three days, the event is the perfect platform for machinery such as metal and sorting facilities, presses, shredders, shears, crushers and screens, along with special equipment for material handling, transport and logistics. Exhibitors showcase their machinery and facilities in action across over 90.000 sqm of open-air exhibiton area on a realistic working environment.

RecyclingAKTIV takes place alongside TiefbauLIVE, the Demonstration trade fair for road construction and civil engineering. These twin events complement each other perfectly. After a successful inaugural event at a new location and with a new organising team in 2017, the twin trade fair has found the perfect place to develop in Karlsruhe. In September 2019, the event was back on the exhibition grounds of the Karlsruhe Trade Fair Centre.

And from 27 - 29 April 2023, the grounds of Karlsruhe Trade Fair Centre will once again turn into a mobile recycling yard and an open construction site. On the first platform for the construction and recycling industries in 2022 there will be more action, more technology and more demonstrations than ever before.
