Description

Conference Theme
One of the primary concerns of present day humankind is the environment. Rapid industrialization and development are increasingly posing a danger to the environment. This would lead to a point where human endeavour would ultimately become unsustainable. Fortunately, the world has begun to realize the importance of the environment in sustainable development.

The aim of the conference is to create awareness in young minds about the importance of the environment and the developments being made with regard to protection of the environment. Specifically, the conference will focus on the current research trends and advances in applications of biotechnology in environmental pollution assessment and control and in the development of environment friendly technologies.

Technical Sessions
The following technical sessions have been slated:
 Biofuels
 Environmental Biotechnology
 Water - Waste Water Assessment, Treatment & Management
 Biometallurgy
 Biotechnology and Sustainable Ecosystem (Climate Change & Biodiversity)
 Applications of Biotechnology in Industrial Pollution Control
