Significance of green and nano-technologies for sustainable development highlighted
A two-day national conference, sponsored by Department of Science and Technology (DST) of the Government of India, on 'New Dimensions in Green Technology for Sustainable Development' was organized recently in February at Jaipur's Swami Keshvanand Institute of Technology (SKIT).

The conference had the aim of providing a platform to exchange recent information and researches in all disciplines of chemistry and environmental science to meet the diverse challenges thrown up by industrialization and globalization leading to degradation of environment.

A panel discussion on nano technology was the main highlight of the conference besides presentation of invited talks and research papers on various topics related to the theme of the conference.

Various experts from various engineering colleges, Indian Institutes of Technology, National Institutes of Technology along with industrialists, chemists, environmental scientists and students took part in the conference. Research papers on green technologies, sustainable development and nano-technology were presented in the conference.

It emerged from the conference that the integrated and closed cycle bio-energy systems to utilize the industrial and bio-degradable wastes should be brought to center-stage for sustainable development currently.

Much of research and development effort needs to be diverted towards discovering micro and nano materials for inventing efficient bio-reactors and better bio-hydrogen production processes.
