With urbanization in the past century in India at a fast pace, the water and waste management issues multiplied throwing challenges to the municipal administration and public health. Except capital cities of the States, most of the municipal corporations did not have water and waste management facilities.
With the scarcity of land and other geographical problems, building centralized waste management facilities as existing in the developing countries is cost prohibitive, and not possible. India has already adopted for decentralized wastewater treatment for Industries, apartment houses and commercial facilities.
The Conference and Expo format is unique and will focus on water, wastewater, and solid waste issues facing both the urban and rural areas. This will also create a forum to bring together people from Indian administration, industry, commercial sector and academia to interact with International experts and vendors in water and waste management. The conference provides an opportunity to explore cost-effective technical solutions for water and waste management problems facing the Indian urban community and exchange knowledge and expertise. The conference will also feature competitions for the young Indian students in the technical arena to motivate them to enter the water and waste management sector.
The Water and Waste Management Conference is planned in Hyderabad, India the capital of Telangana. Hyderabad is the IT & Pharma capital of India with campuses of international corporate giants like Google, Microsoft, GE, BOA to name a few. The city has a historic presence of more than 400 years and is home to about 8 million people spread over 250 square miles. The city is well connected to all major international and Indian cities.
