The Recycling Today Media Group, a business unit of GIE Media, Valley View, Ohio, has announced plans to introduce Paper Recycling Conference India in 2015. The event expands the group’s successful paper and plastic recycling events held in North America, Europe, the Middle East and Asia.
Paper Recycling Conference India will be Jan. 29-30, 2015, in New Delhi, India, at the Taj Palace Hotel.
The Indian Paper Manufacturers Association, the Indian Pulp & Paper Technical Association and the Indian Agro & Recycled Paper Mills Association are supporting the conference. As well, Waste & Recycling India magazine and Waste & Recycling Middle East magazine are organizing partners.
“India’s population of nearly 1.3 billion is some 15 percent of the global population,” says James R. Keefe, publisher of the Recycling Today Media Group. “As well, it is estimated that consumption of paper in India is projected to reach 13.95 million tons by 2015-2016. Further, annual recovered paper requirements are projected to jump from 8 million tons currently to some 16 million tons by 2025. These factors all contributed to our belief that is was important to bring our Paper Recycling Conference to India.”
Keefe continues, “We’re pleased that the event has been embraced by the local industry and that we’ve received such tremendous support. Our global network of industry contacts is allowing us to work closely with people who have an intimate knowledge of the local market. We’re adding to that a global perspective as we begin to fill out the program with speakers who can provide unusually valuable market insight.”
The conference website at www.PaperRecyclingIndia.com will be updated continuously with speaker, sponsor and exhibitor information. The website also will act as a hub for registration details and social and networking events that will be held around the event.
