India being among the most populated countries in the world and the fastest growing major economy today generates humongous amount of waste, apart from being among the largest consumers of water and energy. Ecologically sustainable and Environmentally responsible development have therefore gained prominent attention in Policy matters as well as public discourse.
Government’s ambitious projects such as “Swachh Bharat Mission” (Clean India Mission) and “National Mission for Clean Ganga” are set to stimulate adoption of scalable, sustainable and cost-effective technologies and solutions in Waste Water and Sewage Treatment, Industrial Effluent Treatment and Solid Waste Management.
On the other hand, the country’s ambitious Climate plan which took the world’s attention at the COP21 Summit 2015 in Paris, aims to cut emissions upto 33-35 per cent of year 2005 levels and source 40% of the total electricity demand from solar and other renewable sources by year 2030.
All of these open up enormous opportunities for modern Technologies and Solutions. The Indian water and wastewater market, presently over US $ 4 billion is growing at a steady rate of 10-12 percent every year while the Solid Waste Management market in India is expected to be worth US$ 13.62 billion by 2025. Besides, the Government targets to reach an installed Solar capacity of 100 GW by year 2022 from the present installed capacity of 5500 MW and towards this end, the recent Union Budget has allocated Rs. 5036 Crore for Renewable Energy in year 2016-17.
With an understanding of these opportunities and building on the success of its three successive annual editions of the event, Messe Frankfurt India is back with the 4th edition of Watertech Wastetech Cleantech 2016 (WWC 2016) scheduled on 26th August 2016 at Le Meridien, New Delhi. The event will feature three parallel focused conference tracks on “Water and Waste Water/Effluent Treatment”, “Solid Waste Management” and “Solar Energy” alongwith an exposition showcasing cost-effective solutions by select technology pioneer companies.
WWC 2016 would be attended by over 200 Delegates and distinguished Speakers comprising of top-most Government authorities, international partners, technology pioneers, researchers, engineers, scientists and representatives from the Industry, thereby serving the prime objective of bringing together various key stake holders in the sectors of Water, Waste Water, Solid Waste and Solar Energy from India and internationally at a common platform and forum to exchange insights and best practices in applications, share latest experiences as well as explore possibilities of future collaboration and partnership.
Over the years, WWC has established itself as an important gathering of top Government authorities and decision makers, eminent subject-matter experts and key stake holders. Past successive editions of the Summit have been well attended, enabling active discussions, deliberations and networking at the highest level.
“Messe Frankfurt India's environmental shows is certainly a fine attempt to create a platform for green technologies for the progressive local market. I had discussions with several exhibitors displaying wastewater treatment technologies and it was good to see the kind of products on display.”
– Mr Atamjit Singh, Director, Global Sourcing Company
“I was happy to see a lot of exhibitors presenting technologies for solid waste and wastewater management under one roof. This will certainly help heavy industries choose the right kind of products for long-term business and environment sustainability.”
– Mr. V K Chaurasiya, Joint Adviser (PHEE) & Project Director (NMSH), Ministry of Urban Development, Govt. Of India
