Bringing a host of mechanised solutions, ‘Clean India Technology Week’ began at Hitex Exhibition Centre in Hitec City on Wednesday.
GHMC Commissioner Dr B Janardhan Reddy formally inaugurated the platform, which is showcasing cleaning solutions for a gamut of industries with exhibitors from across 20 countries.
"Today, technologies are changing. We need to alter accordingly and optimally utilise what is suitable to us and that can be customised to our requirement,” said the Commissioner after the launch.
“There is a huge scope for mechanised cleaning, as in many areas we cannot completely depend on labourers, in terms of efficiency, cost and availability.
Further, labourers are not keen in doing cleaning job and hence, today or tomorrow we have to adopt mechanised cleaning,” added Reddy.
Speaking on behalf of the Telangana State Road Transport Corporation (TSRTC), Managing Director GV Ramana Rao informed that they have processes in place to clean their fleet.
“We do have machines at bus stations. At the same time, it is important to look at the technologies that are being offered here and find out how it will be useful for us.
We would certainly like to understand indigenous solutions that will be on display,” he said.
"Clean India Technology Week will provide exposure to newer technologies which will reduce the drudgery attached to manual cleaning.
Unlike the common belief that mechanisation reduces the number of people required for cleaning, it in fact reduces the inhuman way of cleaning.
If mechanisation is introduced in cleaning of highways, it is much safer,” opined Dr TK Sreedevi, Director-Municipal Corporation, MD-TUFIDC, Mission Director-MEPMA Live Demo.
The cleaning solutions being showcased encompass road sweepers required by the Civic authorities and high pressure jets needed in industrial cleaning.
In addition, a host of waste management solutions are on display. Exhibitors are also demonstrating innovative products like the Poona Brush Company's Clean-o-Vac, Hand Care Solutions' Hygiene Foam Soap Dispenser and others.
The show has four concurrent exhibitions - Clean India Show, Laundrex India, Waste Technology India Expo, Car Care Expo and a separate section for Pest Management.
Organised in support of the GHMC and GRAPCCI, the event is set to attract over 8,000 trade and industrials visitors.
