Posted On : 4th April 2014

Under the auspices of the Technology & Energy Expert Committee, ICC in co-operation with Green Chemistree Foundation is organizing a Two-day Awareness Seminar on GREEN CHEMISTRY & ENGINEERING on 22 - 23 April 2014. The venue of the Seminar is the Conference Hall, Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar Technological University (dbatu), Lonere, (off Mumbai-Goa Highway, NH-17) Tal. Mangaon, Dist. Raigad, Maharashtra – 402 103.

Dr. A. J. V. Prasad, Jt. Secretary, DCPC, Ministry of Chemicals & Fertilizers, Government of India has kindly agreed to be the Chief Guest and inaugurate the Seminar. Mr. Rajeev Kumar Mital, Member Secretary, Maharashtra Pollution Control Board is invited to be Guest of Honour. Prof. G. D. Yadav, Vice Chancellor, Institute of Chemical Technology (ICT), Mumbai has consented to deliver Key-Note Address on first day i.e. 22 April 2014 and Dr.Yogeshwara Rao, Adviser, Office of the Principal Scientific Adviser, Government of India will deliver Key-Note Address on second day i.e. 23 April 2014 of the Seminar.

GREEN CHEMISTREE FOUNDATION is a registered non-profit organization which has vision to bring forth technical know-how regarding green chemistry and engineering applications amongst the chemical community including Industry, Academia, Research Institutes, Government bodies and Students.

The Program of the Seminar is well structured and important areas such as Green Processes, Green Solvents, Green Catalysts and Green Engineering are covered. You will notice from the program that apart from experts from academia, there will be 3 – 4 Case Studies which will be based on local needs (from units operating in industrial areas like Lote Parshuram, Mahad, Roha, Patalganga, Taloja, etc.)


The main objective of the Seminar is to create awareness about 12 Principles of Green Chemistry:

  1. Prevention
  2. Atom Economy
  3. Less Hazardous Chemical Syntheses
  4. Designing Safer Chemicals
  5. Safer Solvents and Auxiliaries
  6. Design for Energy Efficiency
  7. Use of Renewable Feedstocks
  8. Reduce Derivatives
  9. Catalysis
  10. Design for Degradation
  11. Real-time Analysis for Pollution Prevention
  12. Inherently Safer Chemistry for Accident Prevention


Entrepreneurs, CEOs, Chemical / Process Plant Personnel including Chemical Engineers engaged in operation, can take advantage of this opportunity. Certificates will be presented to the delegate-participants.


To defray the expenses, the registration charges will be Rs.3,371/- per delegate (inclusive of 12.36% Service Tax).

Delegates may please note that Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar Technological University has kindly agreed to provide 20 rooms on twin sharing basis for the delegates who wish to stay at the venue during the Seminar.
