Advanced water technologies help solve India water supply issues

GE has been working in India to help it efficiently use available water resources and expand its usable water supply.

GREATER NOIDA, INDIA, April 9, 2013 -- Population growth and increased demand for water are shrinking India's available water supply, especially in urban areas. GE (NYSE: GE) has been working in India to help it efficiently use available water resources and expand its usable water supply. At Aquatech India, taking place April 8-10, 2013, at the India Expo Centre in Greater Noida, GE is displaying its water technologies, products and services that are helping India address its water and wastewater challenges.

"India remains a water-stressed country, and demand continues to outpace supply, making water reuse imperative," said Hoshang Subawalla, business leader, India—water and process technologies for GE Power & Water. "Local engineering, project management and local manufacturing help GE deliver the most effective solutions to its Indian customers."

GE is involved in water and wastewater projects in the commercial and institutional, municipal, refining, power, metals, food and beverage and textiles industries throughout India. GE is providing on-site treatment services at more than 25 sites and has an in-country services team for post-commissioning and operations and maintenance support.
