DHAKA, Dhaka Chamber of Commerce and Industry (DCCI) and its METABUILD (Resource-Efficient Supply Chain for Metal Products in Buildings Sector in South Asia) project is organizing a two-day International Clean Technology Fair from tomorrow at Institution of Diploma Engineers Bhaban in the city.

Sustainable and Renewable Energy Development Authority (SREDA) Chairman M Helal Uddin will inaugurate the fair as chief guest while SREDA Member (Additional Secretary) Siddique Zobair, DCCI Senior Vice President Waqar Ahmad Choudhury and Vice President Imran Ahmed will be present at the opening session of the event, said a press release.

The fair will be open for all from 10.00 am to 7.00 pm.

METABUILD project is working to promote sustainable consumption and production in SMEs and suitable technology solutions are required for improving energy efficiency and resource (materials, water etc.) efficiency.

In this context, this International Clean Technology Fair is being held to bring technology suppliers and SMEs together.

The fair will host around 70 exhibitors from Bangladesh and India to interact with about 300 METABUILD partner companies as well as other industries. This will be an ideal platform for the technology suppliers to explore the potential market with a scope of establishing new partnerships.

Industry owners will gain insights about different products which can be useful in their factories to reduce resource consumption and waste generation leading to corresponding cost savings.

METABUILD is a four-year project supported by the European Union (EU) under the SWITCH Asia Programme emphasizing sustainable consumption and production in small and medium enterprises (SMEs). DCCI is the implementing partner of METABUILD project.
