A two-day e-pavilion (on Feb 18th and 19th) was organized by Indian Biogas Association in coordination with the German Biogas Association (GBA). The event was as well supported and promoted by National Dairy Development Board, Indo-German Chamber of Commerce, AIC, Mahamana Foundation for Innovation & Entrepreneurship-IM- BHU, and Industrial Outlook Online Magazine.
This year due to the COVID pandemic, IBA had conducted its annual Bio-Energy Pavilion through a virtual platform. In the e-Pavilion, 26 exhibitor companies participated, working in the field of Biogas, Bio-CNG, biofuel, Waste Management, Sewage Treatment Plant, Effluent Treatment Plant, Biomass, Bio-Diesel, Bio-Ethanol, Bio-fertilizer. A special attraction of the event was the SATAT corner and the Investor corner at the e-pavilion. These two informative booths were placed in the pavilion to address the queries of the visitors related to the SATAT scheme and financing options available in the bio-energy sector.
The Bio-Energy E-Pavilion 2021 had over 1100 registrations and the list of participants included corporate professionals, aspiring entrepreneurs, environmental enthusiasts, research scholars, academics and NGOs, and relevant government officials.
