WHAT: “Innovative Solutions for Greener Cities” is the theme of this year’s Eco Expo Asia, the region’s leading event in the thriving environmental protection industry.

WHEN: 26-29 October 2017

WHO: Exhibitors will showcase their products under such categories: air quality, waste management and recycling, eco-friendly products, green buildings and energy efficiency, as well as water treatment and quality management.

Ceiling fans that can compete with air conditioners were among the pioneering green tech ideas on show from some 320 exhibitors at the 11th edition of Eco Expo Asia in Hong Kong

WHY: Asian countries are emerging as influential investors in the global renewable energy market. Between 2014-2015, green investments by the world’s top 10 countries totalled US$243.1billion. The Chinese mainland, Japan and India ranked among the top-five, with total investments accounting for US$149.3 billion. Meanwhile, the Chinese mainland, Indonesia, the Philippines and Vietnam are projected to have a combined investment potential of US$16 trillion for green building construction in the coming decade.  

Leading international scholars will host in-depth discussions on environmental topics at the fair’s three-day Eco Asia Conference, focusing on sustainable water supply, green building and renewable energy.

WHERE: AsiaWorld-Expo, Hong Kong

And You Can Quote Me: “I found high-potential Chinese and Hong Kong sludge and wastewater treatment, as well as waste-to-energy solutions and service providers here at Eco Expo Asia. I hope to introduce these new and cost-effective solutions to Malaysia. I met local exhibitors whom I am very interested in introducing to the Malaysian government; for example, E Tech Management, an e-waste provider; and Baguio Green Group. They can be potential partners for various green joint-ventures in Malaysia. I would like to work with local research providers, such as the Nano and Advanced Materials Institute Ltd, which can offer useful case studies that we can refer to before we sign off such important deals. The Asian green market is highly lucrative with generous bank loans, subsidies and SME financing support pouring in from the governments in the region. Malaysia is also taking an aggressive role in expanding its green industries, which is the main reason why I am here – to look for opportunities to bring back to Malaysia.” (Leong Kin Mun, President, Malaysia Biomass Industries Confederation, Malaysia, talking about last year’s fair.)
