Eco-robots and a human waste-powered VW Beetle were some of the technological highlights of the inaugural Environmental Trade Show (ETS), run by Bristol-based trade association Low Carbon South West.

More than 100 exhibitors and 1,600 visitors attended the event in October at the University of the West of England (UWE) Exhibition and Conference Centre. ETS was organised by Ontrac Agency on behalf of Low Carbon South West.

According to the organiser, the Technology Demonstration Zone had ground-breaking eco-robots and a Sustainable Transport Zone featuring electric powered super vehicles and a ‘poo-powered’ Biobug VW Beetle.

“We are delighted the event was such a resounding success in the first year,” said Low Carbon South West chairman Alan Bailey. “ETS UK hopes to get bigger and better and we have high hopes for the future.

“The show should be the number one national environmental trade event with a UK wide draw while keeping the local focus, which is so beneficial and important to the low carbon community.”

Earlier this year, Low Carbon South West said the high concentration of industry in the South West providing low carbon technologies and services made Bristol a prime location.
