IFAT was a great success for BIRCO. It was the presentation of our new sedimentation system BIRCOprime® as well as the many very valuable discussions that made the trade fair a highlight. And after the long period of only digital discussions, the personal reunion was a special experience. The organization of the fair was perfect, especially in view of the pandemic. This deserves great thanks and praise.
