“INDO-GERMAN CONFERENCE ON “WATER MANAGEMENT IN INDIA”

ON 29 MAY 2017

AISSMS organized a one day Indo-German Conference on Water Management in India on May 29, 2017. The main objective of the conference was to give wide publicity to water management course run by AISSMS jointly with VESBE Germany. This conference discussed the issues related with water management in India. At present, India is facing major challenges in terms of availability of pure water, its  equitable  distribution  to  the  masses, scientific  management  of  wastewater  and its  reuse  possibilities  to  reduce  the increasing demand for potable water. About 80% of water is used for the ‘non-drinking’ purpose, which is resulting in wastewater generation. Little quantity of waste water is recycled and reused. However, recycle and reuse  has  not  received  much  attention because  of  the  lack  of  viable  models, technology  support  and  lack  of  sufficient trained  and  skilled  manpower. In view of these, the conference on water management in India was organized by AISSMS’s Department of Chemical Engineering and Department of Civil Engineering and ITI, Boribhadak Pune at Sheraton Grand, Pune.

On the Dias:  Chief guest Dr. Devanand Shinde, Vice-Chancellor, Shivaji University, Kolhapur, Shri Malojiraje Chhatrapati Hon.
