Projects and Cooperation


Social media project at IFAT 2016

Within the framework of IFAT 2016, the VAK and trainees from its member companies are organising a project to introduce and implement the association’s presence in social media.

Short interviews with members exhibiting their products at IFAT are recorded, edited and uploaded by the trainees in the form of video clips for which they are also responsible. Trainees discuss topics concerning IFAT, SOCIAL MEDIA, BASIC and FURTHER TRAINING, the ENVIRONMENT and the FUTURE with the managing directors of the companies on their own initiative. 

For the VAK and all its member companies, the focus on attracting and fostering young talent is a subject of great importance today. Young talent, or “digital natives” as their generation is also called, will therefore ensure the project’s successful realisation.



Presentation of underground container systems at IFAT 2016

As a highlight of this year’s Truck in Action Show, a cooperation has been set up for the first time with the GGAWB (Quality Control Association of Waste and Recycling Containers) at IFAT 2016. The trucks registered by the working committees for refuse collection vehicles and roll-off tippers, skiploaders, containers and cranes will present these systems and their practical handling in live demonstrations with four manufacturers of underground collection containers.



Not only the GGAWB, but also one of our own members will present an underground system at the Truck in Action Show: SUBWAVE, a system developed by DOSTA Consulting.

Pay us a visit and find out more at IFAT in Munich from 30 May to 3 June 2016!
