2 Östen Ekengren, May 2013 The world population is increasingly urban Global population by type of area and by region – ,000 9,000 8,000 7,000 6,000 5,000 4,000 3,000 2,000 1,000 0 ■ Urban - Less developed ■ Rural - Less developed ■ Urban - More developed ■ Rural - More developed Population in millions Source: UN Population Division, World Population Prospects: The 2008 Revision, 2008

3 Östen Ekengren, May 2013 Global Water Stress 2011

4 Östen Ekengren, May 2013 Global economic power is shifting Top 10 economies by GDP in 2050 Source: Goldman Sachs, BRICs and Beyond, 2007

5 Östen Ekengren, May 2013 What we have: A treatment facility Problems/Challenges  The water sector is a major energy user  GHG emissions  Treated water is not used  Outflows may contain pollutants, viruses, pathogens, pharmaceutical residues etc.  Sludge seen as a problem Wastewater in Energy in Sludge out Treated Water out GHG out

6 Östen Ekengren, May 2013 What we want: A production facility Opportunities  Waste as a resource  Net energy production  Nutrients recovery/reuse  Improved treatment (P,N Pharmaceutical residues)  Water reuse Wastewater in Nutrients out Water reuse Energy out

8 Östen Ekengren, May 2013 Barriers-solutions-opportunities  Invest in demand driven research  Invest in the Clean Tech companies presenting low Life Cycle Cost Technologies  Demo installations should be supported  Customers demanding solutions exceeding the capacity of the product/company  System solutions-new combinations- need of regulation- need of new business models  More than well-developed technology is needed to sell efficiently  Co-operate more between companies, countries and continents

9 Östen Ekengren, May th European Forum on Eco-innovation Why EBTC?  European Service Provider – EBTC is working with European organisations, bilateral Chambers of Commerce and Embassies to leverage existing efforts and build synergies.  Global Europe Strategy – EBTC in India is part of the EU’s strategy to enhance Europe’s competitiveness in a globalised market.  Knowledge of the Indian Market – EBTC publishes periodic studies and reports on the Indian market scenario and has the practical know-how in all aspects of doing business in India.  Technical Expertise – EBTC has experts working in the focus sectors of Biotechnology, Energy, Environment and Transport.  Network – EBTC is well connected with government organisations, R&D institutes, private companies, financial institutions and industry associations across India.  Geographical Coverage – With headquarters in New Delhi and regional offices in Kolkata, Mumbai and Bangalore, EBTC’s network stretches across India.

10 Östen Ekengren, May th European Forum on Eco-innovation Guiding European Businesses to India EBTC services: taking European companies from the point of considering the Indian market to implementing their projects Step 1 Market Insight  Guidance on doing business in India  Information on regulatory framework  Information on market access barriers  Intellectual Property Rights (IPR)- Help desk  Focused market reports Step 2 Market Access Roadmap  Screening of projects in India at national or state level  Identification of potential business partners  Design of market entry strategy  Customised market intelligence Step 3 Market Strategy Implementation  Proactive incubation services to acclimatise with minimum risk and costs  Hands-on-support in bidding for projects  Assistance in finalising pilot projects  Liaising with government and financial institutions

11 Östen Ekengren, May 2013  Global demand driven research and dissemination.  Financing. Early stages and first installation. More life cycle cost driven approaches.  Demonstration sites boost the interest from academia, applied researchers, SMEs, large companies, investors and the customers.  To be member of one or more network is important.  Governments (legislation, labelling, BAT, standards) and political leadership should promote the sustainable infrastructure investments in developing countries.  SMEs and large companies from different countries can better compete on the world market when they co-operate.  European countries will be more resource efficient if we co-operate in the export to the BRIC countries. (No business without finding the customer)  Establish strategic research co-operation with BRIC countries. 13th European Forum on Eco-innovation
