CAB Decides to Expand the Scope of Refining & Petrochemicals Conference
Prior to liberalization of economy, the trend was to have standalone refineries or petrochemical plants which has now evolved to setting up integrated refinery and petrochemicals facilities which are going to be the future. Indian refiners are significantly investing in debottlenecking, upgrading and expanding the facilities which are of the range of Rs. 8000 to Rs. 1 lakh crore which is further going to grow to meet the increasing product demand.
The board has decided to organise technical session on refinery upgradation of refineries to produce to BS VI fuel as mandated by the Government and cover topical issues of Safety, Technologies, Projects and Project Management, Improving Refinery Economics, Impact of Alternative Fuels on Future of Refineries, and Petrochemicals and Polymers during the conference.
Specialty Chemicals World Expo 2017 to Showcase India’s Emerging Potential
Municipalities Show Interest in WaterEX
National water policy of India has given lot of thrust to municipal and industrial waste water treatment and reuse which has created ample opportunities for the Indian as well as international companies. Though in terms of market size and opportunities India is a huge market but the expenditure has continued to be low so far. Municipal sewage waste treatment market in India is huge in India. According to some guesstimates, it is only ten percent of waste in rural areas and thirty percent of waste in urban areas is treated. The market for industrial waste water treatment in India is growing at a healthy rate of 10-12 percent per annum and will continue to maintain positive growth momentum.
WaterEX World Expo 2017 and international conference will bring together the experts from end users of municipal and industrial wastewater treatment sectors to interact with the water and waste treatment solution providers. Mr G S Jha, Chairman, Central Water Commission, Ministry of Water Resources, Govt. of India and Technical Chairman, WaterEX World Expo 2017, Mr A B Pandya, former Chairman, Central Water Commission, Ministry of Water Resources, Govt. of India have been at the helm of structuring the conference program.
