The first BulkSolids India – to take place in Mumbai in the Nehru Centre (Fig.) on 02.–03.03.2010 – will address the issues of handling, transporting and storing industrial bulk materials. As the Indian manufacturing and process industries have grown, the effective handling of bulk materials has taken on an enhanced significance. As a simultaneous conference and exhibition it is a unique event, which focuses on all aspects relating to the characterisation, handling, transportation and storage of bulk materials. The conference will cover such important topics as port handling, rail transportation, belt conveying, energy efficiency, and storage.
