The challenges for India largely lie in developing basic sanitation, food, infrastructure, providing clean and accessible water source and attaining satisfactory energy generation through renewable resources,” he added. “Wasting just 10g of food may leave millions in hunger. He urged the research community to concentrate more on reducing waste while generating beneficial products.ICACSE - 2018, which would be held till December 8, is being organised by the Department of Chemical Engineering at NIT-T, focussing on various trends and challenges to advance the technological aspects of design and operation of chemical plants, development of advanced/novel functional materials and processes. Trichy: The ‘green chemistry’ concept will play a major role in the future as it is of utmost importance to minimise waste and unwanted by-products, said G D Yadav, vice-chancellor of Institute of Chemical Technology (ICT), Mumbai, here on Thursday.Yadav was speaking at the inaugural session of International conference on the advantages and challenges for sustainable ecosystem (ICACSE – 2018) at the National Institute of Technology (NIT-T), where he was the chief guest.Green chemistry involves designing chemical products and processes that reduce or eliminate the use or generation of hazardous substances. As examples, Yadav said carbon dioxide sequestration (extracting and storing carbon dioxide emissions to prevent its release into the atmosphere), improving bio-methanol production, hydrogen energy and solar-based transportation would play a major role in the future.Addressing the crowd, Yadav said implementing green chemistry principles would go a long way in terms of minimising waste and reducing unwanted by-products.He also stressed on the importance of collaboration between the academic fraternity and industrialists on a multi-disciplined research outcome, which may largely benefit the basic needs of people in the country.
