Waste to Energy
Is incineration of city garbage a good idea?

5:30 pm – 7:30 pm
5th Floor, International Convention Centre (Crossword Building)
Senapati Bapat Road
Municipalities are struggling to cope with increasing volumes of garbage and demands for a clean city. As dumpsites get filled and with no more land available new solutions are being sought.
