About Environ Expo 2018

India is surging positively on the great strides of development which can be continued only if a proper environmental balance is sustained. Apart from judicious utilization of the available resources there is need to reduce pollution & other malevolent footprints. The sensitive and vigilant collaboration amongst relevant stakeholders including Industry, Government, Academia and Communities is required to pave the way for an all-inclusive, humane & environmentally sustainable development. Incorporating the use of the relevant modern tools, techniques and solutions that ensures environmental sustainability is the need of the hour.
Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) has been playing a vital role in supporting various affairs related to the sustainable & holistic development. In this context, CII is pleased to announce Environ Expo 2018 scheduled from 06th to 08th December 2018 at the Auto Cluster Exhibition Centre, Pune, India.

Environ Expo 2018

Clean Energy

India is both a major energy producer & consumer. In a bid to ensure 8-10 per cent annual growth up to 2031, India needs to generate and supply 6 to 7 times more power from the present capacity. Nuclear energy can play an important role in augmenting the power generation capacity of the country. While first quarter of 2009 reported average growth, generation achievement during the period April 08 - Jan 09 has been 93.0% of the target. Wind energy is the fastest growing source of commercial energy in the world. And India, surprisingly enough, emerged as world's 5th largest wind energy producer. Aiming sustainable growth, India has targeted a generation capacity addition of 67000 MW in the National Electricity Plan an integral part of the Eleventh five year plan. Same on the heels, the capacity addition for 12th five year plan is estimated to be 60000 MW. With many initiatives from government, we are confident that India would achieve its target to light up life of each person residing in far flung areas in the next five year plan.

Environment Protection

Humans have exploited the nature in accordance of our convenience often neglecting the basic tenets of the mutual co-existence. Due to undue pressure of overconsumption, population and technology, the biophysical environment is being degraded, sometimes permanently. Environmental Protection is an integral part of the overall development process and cannot be considered in isolation from it. Thus there is a serious need to undertake measures for protecting & conserving the environment in the most holistic way. Creating a robust eco-system comprising the varied stakeholders to initiate, implement and promote various environment friendly initiatives, adopting modern and updated technology putting less strain on the resources is the need of the hour. Thoughtful disposal of the waste generated from the civilian, medical & industrial activities, adopting 3R methodology may benefit in achieving the aim of conserving the nature. New initiatives such as Smart Cities Mission that reduces the strain on the conventional mediums and thus promotes environmental and societal sustainability needs to be implemented. Initiatives like Smart cities mission also contribute to an increased sense of responsibility on things such as disposing of waste, proper energy utilization etc.


The Indian automotive industry has started to experience the effects of the global disruption. Electrification is of particular importance, and might significantly impact auto component manufacturers. The global automotive industry is on the verge of disruption. Digitization, increasing automation, and new business models have revolutionized other industries, and the automotive industry will be no exception to such a revolution. The Indian automotive industry has started to experience the effects of this global disruption. How prepared are automotive stakeholders for this disruption? And how can they ride this change to expand into newer areas? Four technology-driven trends—electrification, shared mobility, connectivity, and autonomous driving—are leading the automotive industry to this disruption. These trends will shift markets and revenue pools, change mobility behavior and build new avenues for competition and cooperation. Globally, revenue pools from conventional sources such as one-time vehicle sales and aftermarket sales could continue to grow at their current pace (low single-digit growth depending on geography). The real growth ahead lies in services, which are poised to grow by an average of up to 40 percent per annum globally. Electrification—an attractive solution to growing levels of vehicle pollution in metropolises—is of particular importance to India today. The automotive industry is already feeling the effects of electrification or e-mobility, both globally and in India. By 2030, electrification could lead to electric vehicles (EVs including battery electric vehicles, plug-in hybrid electric vehicles, and hybrid electric vehicles) holding a substantial share (up to 50 percent of new vehicle sales in a breakthrough scenario) of the global automobile sector.1 If India sees a similar momentum, it will significantly impact manufacturers across the automotive value chain. Many countries have promoted e-mobility through a range of incentives, but these alone did not drive EV penetration. A supportive ecosystem that also establishes strict regulations on carbon emissions and regulations driven by strategic intent (eg, reduce current account deficit and geographic dependence driven by crude oil) indirectly prompts the higher adoption of EVs.

Waste Management

Waste Management rules in India are based on the principles of "sustainable development", "precaution" and "polluter pays". These principles mandate municipalities and commercial establishments to act in an environmentally accountable and responsible manner—restoring balance, if their actions disrupt it. The increase in waste generation as a by-product of economic development has led to various subordinate legislations for regulating the manner of disposal and dealing with generated waste are made under the umbrella law of Environment Protection Act, 1986 (EPA). Specific forms of waste are the subject matter of separate rules and require separate compliances, mostly in the nature of authorisations, maintenance of records and adequate disposal mechanisms. With rapid urbanisation, the country is facing massive waste management challenge. Over 377 million urban people live in 7,935 towns and cities and generate 62 million tonnes of municipal solid waste per annum. Only 43 million tonnes (MT) of the waste is collected, 11.9 MT is treated and 31 MT is dumped in landfill sites. Solid Waste Management (SWM) is one among the basic essential services provided by municipal authorities in the country to keep urban centres clean. However, almost all municipal authorities deposit solid waste at a dumpyard within or outside the city haphazardly. Experts believe that India is following a flawed system of waste disposal and management. There has been technological advancement for processing, treatment and disposal of solid waste. Energy-from-waste is a crucial element of SWM because it reduces the volume of waste from disposal also helps in converting the waste into renewable energy and organic manure. Ideally, it falls in the flow chart after segregation, collection, recycling and before getting to the land fill. But many waste to energy plants in India are not operating to their full potential.

Why Maharashtra

Maharashtra has the largest economy in India. It is third-most urbanised state with urban population of 45% of whole population. Maharashtra contributes 25% of the country's industrial output and is the most indebted state in the country. Industries in Maharashtra include chemical and chemical products (17.6%), food and food products (16.1%), refined petroleum products (12.9%), machinery and equipment (8%), textiles (6.9%), basic metals (5.8%), motor vehicles (4.7%) and furniture (4.3%). Although its population makes Maharashtra one of the country's largest energy users, conservation mandates, mild weather in the largest population centres and strong environmental movements have kept its per capita energy use to one of the smallest of any Indian state. The high electricity demand of the state constitutes 13% of the total installed electricity generation capacity in India, which is mainly from fossil fuels such as coal and natural gas. Maharashtra is strongly working towards achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) by United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) as mentioned appended ;
