Words from the EDA President

Published 22/12, 2015 at 14:16

Goodbye 2015…
Welcome 2016

Another year is finishing and an interesting 2016 is upon us.

This year has been very prolific for the European Demolition Association. The main event was the Annual Convention, held in June in Helsinki, Finland. Great speakers, well-prepared conferences and a beautiful place made this meeting one of the most successful in EDA’s history.

From this moment, until almost the end of 2015, EDA focused on the elaboration of the European Demolition Industry Report, the very first report produced about the European Demolition Industry.

This document is the result of work by the EDA in its objective of helping the European demolition industry. The price of the publication is €200 and can be requested on the link: http://www.europeandemolition.org/industryreport

Looking at 2016, the prospects cannot be better. In February, the European Decontamination Institute, partner organization of EDA, celebrates its Forum, the first in the frame of the European Decontamination. To promote the debate about decontamination activities and those non-identified hazardous waste streams, the event will take place on 10 February in Brussels, Belgium. http://www.decontaminationinstitute.org/forum/edi2016/presentation

In June, the EDA will hold its 2016 Annual Convention in Glasgow, Scotland. This will be a special event for the EDA because there will be a change of president. After three years with the honour of being president of the EDA, my presidency is finishing. My colleague William Sinclair, currently EDA vice president will take over the mantle. I would like to wish him good luck, an excellent professional who perfectly knows our association after his many years of experience in it.
