150th annivesary of Mahatama Gandhi: IIT-Delhi to set up waste management centre

Friday, 03 May 2019 | Pioneer News Service | New Delhi

To commemorate the 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi, the Office of the Principal Scientific Adviser (PSA) to the Government and Indian Institute of Technology Delhi (IIT Delhi) have come together to set up a Centre of Excellence for Waste to Wealth Technologies for implementation of sustainable, scientific and technological solutions for waste management.

Principal Scientific Advisor to the Government, Prof K Vijay Raghavan and Director, IIT Delhi, Prof V Ramgopal Rao inked a pact in this regard.

The waste to wealth mission project has been approved under the recently constituted Prime Minister's Science Technology and Innovation Advisory Council (PM-STIAC), which is an overarching body for assessment, creation and implementation of major scientific, technology and innovation interventions for India. The partnership will provide an effective platform for stakeholders to bring together integrated approaches for effective recycle, reuse and resource recovery of waste.
