Following its successful premiere in 2018, POWTECH India, the leading trade fair on the Indian subcontinent for powder, bulk solids and process technologies, will enter its second round this year. POWTECH India will take place at the Bombay Exhibition Center in Mumbai from 9 to 11 September 2020. Companies can register as of now for the trade fair with accompanying congress and supporting programme. Since 2010, NürnbergMesse India has been involved in organising events for the powder and bulk solids industries in India.

Every two years, POWTECH India brings together India’s experts from the production and processing technology environment. Decision-makers from the chemical, pharmaceutical and food production sectors, but also from the energy, recycling and non-metallic mineral (pit and quarry) industries, can find out all about the technologies that matter to them at the exhibition and accompanying congress. There are solutions on offer for all mechanical processes like pulverising, separating, mixing and shaping, as well as the technologies that support these processes, from handling and filling to dust and explosion protection and process control software. The wide range on display and the presence of international market leaders make POWTECH India, which was previously known as Powder and Bulk Solids India, an important industry gathering. Exhibitors benefit from direct and focused access to the Indian market. The organiser NürnbergMesse India is expecting around 60 exhibitors and some 2,000 trade visitors at POWTECH India 2020.

“We launched POWTECH India in 2018 with a new concept and name to accommodate the extended scope of the event and the needs of the Indian market even better. We are now going into the second round with a lot of positive feedback. We are delighted to be once again welcoming exhibitors and experts from all around the world to Mumbai in September,” says Rucheeka Chhugani, Director POWTECH India at NürnbergMesse India. “Pharmaceutical production in particular, but also the chemical, food and energy sectors, are currently experiencing positive economic growth in India. There is a large demand for innovations and equipment for production. POWTECH India stands ready as a leading business platform for the process industries and makes it easy for exhibitors to strengthen their contacts in the subcontinent,” adds Miriam Hempel, project manager international POWTECH World at NürnbergMesse.

Accompanying congress publishes Call for Papers

In addition to the exhibitor stands, the accompanying conference programme also attracts high-calibre trade visitors to POWTECH India. The trade fair is complemented by a three-day programme of seminars and lectures covering all aspects of powder and bulk solids processing, analysis and handling. This also includes measurement, control and particle technologies. In the past, researchers and developers from India, Australia, Japan, the USA and Europe have presented their solutions at this event. “We welcome contributions from researchers in universities, industrial companies and other research organisations. Contributions covering all aspects of particle science and applications are welcome,” says Dr Vijay K. Agarwal from the Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi, who is also the Chairman of the POWTECH India Conference Board. The Call for Papers is open until 31 March 2020.
