With this investment in the high-growth ISWM field, Yokogawa aims to develop its business in the Indian market.
Founded in 2017, i3X has been backed since its inception by Unison Capital Group, a Japanese private equity firm. i3X possesses unique know-how in the ISWM field, such as technology for producing high-quality alternative fuels from waste.
In addition, due to Unison Capital’s support, the company’s ESG management has been highly evaluated and is one of the factors for it being entrusted with waste treatment projects in three Indian cities, including New Delhi.
Tsuyoshi Abe, a Yokogawa senior vice president and head of the Marketing Headquarters, commented, “Yokogawa has been investing strategically to develop business opportunities in the growing Indian market. This investment enables us to bring together Ideation3X's knowhow, the ecosystem that will form around its business, and Yokogawa's technology and experience. I feel confident that we will be able to expand our business while helping to address one of India's most serious social issues. According to the United Nations and other sources, the world population continues to increase at a rate of 140 people per minute. In addition, the average life expectancy is getting longer, and we must be prepared for the increased burden on the global environmental as we approach the age of 10 billion people and 100-year lifespans. By utilizing our ability to measure and connect, we aim to fulfill our responsibilities for the future of our planet.”
Yokogawa established a local subsidiary in the Indian market in 1987 and has since been delivering control systems for plants in the energy industry, monitoring systems for water supply and wastewater networks, and other industrial products and solutions. The company also has significant experience in providing control systems for waste-to-energy plants around the world.
Through this investment in i3X, Yokogawa will be able to contribute to the formation of a circular economy based ISWM framework that is appropriate for the Indian market, and make full use of its measurement and control technologies to support the achievement of the Clean India Mission.
While providing technical support for the development of i3X's business, Yokogawa will also look to expand its engagement in this sector by undertaking the formation of a consortium with related organizations and companies.
