Relieving landfills, winning drinking water, making greater use of waste water—from October 15 to 17, at IFAT India 2018 in Mumbai, the environmental technology industry devoted itself to the challenges of the Indian subcontinent. The focus was on water, sewage, solid waste and recycling. The record attendance of 7,449 visitors (2017: 6,765) proves: the demand for environmental solutions in India is increasing.

Stefan Rummel, Managing Director of Messe München states: “The Indian environmental market is gathering momentum. Topics such as seawater desalination, treatment of industrial wastewater and the expansion of the waste disposal systems drive the industry in the country.”

Bhupinder Singh, CEO of the organizer Messe Muenchen India speaks of an excellent trade show result: “On a total of 11,000 square meters of exhibition space, 242 exhibitors (2017: 184) unveiled their latest solutions and technological developments for the environmental technology industry. The growth of IFAT India demonstrates India’s potential with regards to environmental technologies.”
