Welcome to the German Pavilion at IFAT India 2016!

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

IFAT India 2016
28 – 30 September 2016
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.

Indus media together with partners has organised the second Business Delegation to IFAT India with the aims at providing international companies with a substantial overview of the Indian solid waste management market, business opportunities and new incentive programs such as Swachh Bharat Mission.
