Government of India and IIT-Delhi have collaboratively come up with an initiative to bring solutions for poor waste management in India. The Office of the Principal Scientific Adviser (PSA) to the Government of India and Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Delhi are to introduce the plan to commemorate 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi, which falls on 2nd October every year.

Principal Scientific Advisor to the Government of India, Prof K. Vijay Raghavan and Director, IIT Delhi, Prof. V Ramgopal Rao signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in New Delhi for setting up a Centre of Excellence for Waste to Wealth Technologies for implementation of sustainable, scientific and technological solutions for waste management through validation and deployment of available technologies for transformation of waste to wealth.

The partnership between the two will provide an effective platform for stakeholders to bring together integrated approaches for effective re-cycle, re-use and resource recovery of waste.

The project has been approved under the recently constituted Prime Minster‘s Science Technology and Innovation Advisory Council (PM-STIAC).

PM-STIAC is an overarching body for assessment, creation and implementation of major scientific, technology and innovation interventions for India.

Speaking about MoU with the Office of the PSA, Prof. V Ramgopal Rao, director, IIT-Delhi said, “The idea is to consolidate all possible Waste to Wealth Technologies, learn from the best practices followed worldwide and implement them on the ground for Indian cities.”

Meanwhile, IIT-Delhi is closely involved with the waste management aspects of Delhi and many faculty members are closely involved with the Delhi Administration in addressing waste management issues.
