Waste Management and Recycling India will be held from 8-10 April 2013 at India Expo Centre and Mart, Greater Noida Expressway, Delhi, India.

The conference is being organized by Inter Ads-Brooks Exhibitions of India in partnership with Mack Brooks Exhibitions Ltd. of the U.K.

The event is planned to provide a meeting place in India for businesses, products and services engaged in the waste and recycling industry, to connect the businesses involved in this sector and to assist professionals in discovering more about doing business in a country with one of the fastest growing economies, reports Michelle Amer, a spokesperson with Mack Brooks Exhibitions.

According to information posted on the conference website, India’s population produces some 68.8 million tons of municipal solid waste per year, a level of 188,500 tons per day. If the current growth trend continues, the organization has estimated, urban India will generate 160.5 million tons by 2041, and over the next decade some 920 million tonnes of solid waste will need to be properly managed.

Amer observes that with its current population of 1.2 billion people and a rapidly developing infrastructure, there are many opportunities in India for businesses in the recycling, waste management and energy from waste sectors. Amer also reports that by 2050, Indian economic output could be equivalent to that of the United States.

A number of U.S., European and U.K. companies are already working in India to take advantage of its waste infrastructure growth, Amer says.
