Grant of Accreditation (1.2 MiB, 245 hits)
The Environment Technology Division is actively engaged in creating indigenous technologies for pollution control and value addition to the region’s natural resources. The divisional activities converge into three main areas of waste management, Dioxin research and Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA).
The group has made a niche in “end of the pipe” technologies for mitigation measures, through its expertise in waste water and effluent treatment, solid waste management solutions, dioxin research, perchlorate remediation and extraction of useful fibre from biomass.
NIIST is a NABET accredited, Category A consultant organisation in Kerala with accreditation in the two areas of Mining and Ports & Harbour. The EIA services are used by government and private sector for statutory clearance of projects.
CRTDH (Common Research & Technology Development Hub) is a project funded by DSIR, Govt. of India. CRTDH provides facilities for R&D and services enabling environmental interventions for MSMEs. Environmental issues associated with MSMEs are taken up for development. Technical support is provided to meet regulations as well as to reduce resource consumption and improve efficiency of operation. The state of the art dioxin and PCB analysis facility has been established under the CRTDH project.
Some of the licensed technologies are the organic waste digester cum biogas plant, biofilter for odour control applications, fibre extraction from biomass (coconut and banana) and simulation software for the metal casting foundry sector. We strive to create an ecosystem of “development without destruction” by translating our R&D efforts into innovative, cost-effective technologies.
