An online Short term Program on
Bio privilege and Sustainable Chemistry
Organised by Department of Chemistry Manav Rachna University, Faridabad India
ManavRachna University (MRU) is a leading State Private University (established by Haryana State Legislature Act No 26 of 2014 & under section 2(f) of UGC Act 1956), offering globally relevant education. The University has evolved from ManavRachna College of Engineering (MRCE), which was established in the year 2004, a NAAC accredited ‘A’ Grade institution. ManavRachna University is among the Top 2 Emerging Engineering Institutions of India and has been ranked the No. 1 Engineering Institution in India for Research Capability & Placements in the Times Engineering Survey 2021. The accreditations/rankings are testimonial to the trust of accrediting bodies in the quality of education being offered, a well-established teaching and learning process guided by the global best practices and a culture of academic excellence promoting research, innovation & entrepreneurship.
Chemistry Department offers B.Sc.(Hons), M.Sc. and doctoral programs. Chemistry programs at MRU allow students to integrate and reinforce chemistry principles learned from formal course work, as well as develop scientific and professional skills. Major thrust areas of the department are Green chemistry, Bio-fuels, Wastewater treatment, Heavy metal remediation, Polymer synthesis and Corrosion inhibitors. Department has established a Chapter of Green Chemistry Network Centre at the Campus and keeps organizing conferences, seminars and workshops to propagate awareness about Green Chemistry Practices. Details can be accessed at www.mru.edu.in
The scientific programme will deal with the global trends and developments in the field of green and sustainable chemistry, as well as with research and technology aspects of high importance to specific parts of the world. For example, the topic of biomass valorization will be discussed both with regard to agricultural as well as forestry wastes in order to be of interest to the relevant countries and regions. On the other hand, the use of non-toxic solvents, the development of low/no waste industrial chemical processes, the use of bio- and degradable plastics and the increase of societal and political awareness towards green chemistry practices, will comprise of topics with a broader audience. The contribution of Green Chemistry to the implementation of Sustainable Development Goals set by the United Nations will also be highlighted. Within this context, both novel fundamental chemistry approaches as well as dedicated industry-oriented processes will be discussed, in the different areas of chemistry and chemical engineering.
The STP programme will comprise of both offline and online presentations, and will include special workshops, e.g. on bio-polymers and plastics recycle, etc.Furthermore, modifications in existing technology and development of new processes are very important not only to alleviate environment and energy-related problems but also for fast and flexible response to market need. The tools and techniques such as life cycle analysis are complimentary for designing sustainable processes and products. Green chemistry and engineering are allied and integral for a sustainable future.
To emphasize the importance of green chemistry for sustainable development, and to promote novel research and collaborations by bringing together experts from the academia, industry and government agencies.
