Welcome to the German Pavilion at IFAT India 2018!

India’s Leading Trade Fair for Water, Sewage, Refuse, Recycling and Energy Conservation

IFAT India 2018
15 – 17 October 2018
Bombay Exhibition Center
Mumbai, India

IFAT India gives the environmental industry the most comprehensive range of products and services in the region, the latest state-of-the-art technology and a wide range of superior quality services for all sectors of the environmental industry. It covers the sectors for water, sewage, refuse, recycling and energy conservation.

India is one of the most populated countries in the world. As one of the rapidly developing countries it is also the source of a humongous amount of waste per annum, be it the municipal solid waste, hazardous waste, bio-medical waste or e-waste. Segregation at source, collection, transportation, treatment and scientific disposal of waste is largely insufficient leading to degradation of environment and poor quality of life.

Also in 2018 the German Ministry of Economy and Energy supports IFAT India with an official German Pavilion. The Federal Ministry has commissioned Messe München subsidiary IMAG to organize the German Pavilion
