The IFAT India Supporting Program 2016 was a remarkable success. Together with our local and international partners we brought together government representatives, industry leaders and leading companies from the environmental technologies sectors. In our Innovation Exchange Forum practitioners and decision makers discussed solutions for India in the framework of high class panel sessions and presentation on water management and solid waste management. They shared knowledge and experiences about reliable, approved and innovative environmental technologies and solutions especially designed for the Indian market. With our new Active Learning Center and our Dialogue Forum we have set a new benchmark by providing a unique platform for young talents and specialist to meet key players from the water and waste industry and prove their skills and abilities.
