In December 2013, Knauf participated in the highly successful event, Hospital Build & Infrastructure in New Delhi, India.
The event highlighted the importance of safety and security against fire and urged people to consider the seriousness of protecting themselves and their property against this hazard. Under discussion were the effective thermal and acoustic insulation of a building that depended on the unique properties of gypsum. Subjects such as recyclables, eco-efficiency and sustainability which are key factors in the ever-growing building and construction industries were also brought to limelight. The event deliberated on innovative solutions arriving into the market and the vital role advanced technology plays in operational growth and productivity.
It is important to note that gypsum products are fully sustainable as they are manufactured using gypsum rock. In addition, it is a magic product which is 100% recyclable with no health issues, very efficient as a fire retardant and much appreciated for the indoor air quality as it regulates humidity; revealed company representatives. “We see there is huge scope in India for our products and services as the technical properties of gypsum will improve the overall eco-efficiency and sustainability of buildings.
In fact, we have recently embarked upon a very unique project, Shivananda Ashram in Uttarkashi known as the untouched natural beauty, situated in the Himalayan valley of India. This is a small step towards our long-term plans for opening up the Indian market,” said Amer Bin Ahmed, CEO Knauf LLC, at the launch of Hospital Build & Infrastructure Expo at Pragati Maidan on a 12th to 14th event in New Delhi last December.
