IFAT India 2017 will be held at the Bombay Convention and Exhibition Center, Goregaon from 26th to 28th September 2017. After successful openings at Hyderabad and Ahmedabad, the organizers will be making a stop at New Delhi on September 1, 2017 for a promotional tour of the trade show to raise awareness about various environmental issues in the capital city.
IFAT India 2017 is a three- day trade show which is expecting over 170 participants from 18 countries.

The trade fair will witness technical presentations, panel discussions and tutorials, where industry experts – both from India and overseas –will share their knowledge with the audience at the Innovation Exchange. There will also be a dedicated area for training, live demonstrations, product presentations and skills contests, running parallel to the show. The aim of the Active Learning Center is to promote talent and combat the shortage of skilled workers in the Indian environmental sector.
Bhupinder Singh, CEO of Messe Muenchen India, says: “Being the capital of India, New Delhi is an important stop on our tour. We are happy to be here with India’s leading industry platform and we invite decision makers, investors and the entire environmental community to our event in September in Mumbai. The promotional tour would highlight the state-of-the-art technologies in environmental engineering. The solutions and technology showcased at IFAT India 2017 are specifically tailored to the Indian market and could prove to be critical to the northern region of India, too.”
According to experts, New Delhi is one of the most polluted cities in India. It struggles with a critical level of atmospheric pollution, an insufficient water supply, and huge waste generation. The Government has launched programs like the Smart Cities Mission, National Clean Ganga Mission and the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan which calls for strong participation of the environmental engineering community and the investors alike. Projects like Namami Gange clearly underscore the large demand for state-of-the-art, environmentally and economically sensible components, processes and systems in India. Showcasing innovations and solutions for the segments water, sewage, waste and recycling, IFAT India will offer answers to these demands and covers the following fields: water extraction and treatment, sewage treatment, water distribution, refuse disposal and recycling, generating energy from waste materials, energy efficiency technologies, air pollution and monitoring solutions, decontamination of old sites, soil treatment etc. The trade fair will present a range of solutions and service-providers for municipalities, pollution control boards, water boards and for other players in the industry.
The trade show will also provide an opportunity to industry experts, policy makers and business leaders to discuss regional strategies on numerous environmental challenges and seek solutions through formal interactions.
Along with the trade exhibition IFAT INDIA with its partners will concurrently organize multiple interactive programs, to name a few – Air Quality Management Workshop by SDG (Sustainable Development Goals Foundation); Workshop on entrepreneurship in waste management by ISWA (International Solid Waste Association); Biogas Panel by GIZ, German Biogas Association and Indian Biogas Association; Water Skills Competition by Skill Council for Green Jobs, GIZ and DWA.
IFAT INDIA will also host an Environmental Technologies Conference in association with TERI, which will focus on issues related to Air Pollution, Solid Waste Management and Urban Water Management in the context of Sustainable Development. This edition will also witness a new initiative Business to Government Forum that will provide states an ideal platform to announce new projects, to find matching solutions for new tenders and to inform participants about the latest policies in the environmental sector.
