Entech Pollutec Asia 2018

June 6, 2018 - June 9, 2018


ASEAN presents multiple business opportunities for environmental technology firms. Each country has individual challenges to deal with, most notably for water and wastewater – An excellent opportunity for much-needed business. For example.

At the recent Copenhagen Climate Summit Malaysia adopted a plan designed to reduce emissions 40% by 2020. It also committed to water treatment technology and the cleanup of energy projects such as soil remediation.
The Philippines also suffers from water-related problems and 20-50% of the population still does not have access to safe drinking water. The state and local governments are funding these projects.
Thailand’s pollution control equipment and environmental services market has been estimated at 15 bilion USD. It is expected that the industry will grow at 5-10 percent per annum.

Industrial expansion, rising public awareness, strengthened legislation and economic growth has already given environmental firms a significant advantage in the ASEAN market, especially in Thailand. In fact the government has prioritized development of water supplies, wastewater management, and sewerage development. Big opportunities also exist in the area of solid waste removal and management in Bangkok and its Provinces. Another environmental problem that needs to be addressed in Thailand is hazardous industrial waste. Major opportunities consist of on-site treatment at industrial estates and medical waste management in many areas.

Expansion of the environmental industry relies on the technology and expertise of foreign products and services. Locally made products meet general standards for environmental needs, but specialized products must be imported. Currently 70 to 80 percent of environmental equipment is imported each year.
