Centre for Pollution Control and Environmental Engineering

About Department

Established in 1991, this centre has developed a vigorous culture of applied environmental research, teaching, and industrial consultancy. Several dynamic PhDs and MTechs, trained in frontier research areas, in India and abroad, contribute to the pool of manpower expertise of the centre; the laboratories/units manned by them provide the momentum for cutting edge R&D that strives to carve fresh niches and open new vistas. The effort has been peer-recognized in the form of major international and national prizes, election to the fellowship of premier academies/professional bodies, and nomination on the editorial boards of prestigious technical journals. The most recent of the honours include the National Design Award in Environmental Engineering (conferred by the Institution of Engineers), nomination on the Board of Governors of IITR and other premier institutions, and a succession of three best paper awards received for pioneering research in eco-friendly nanoparticle synthesis. The centre has thus far published over 250 papers in high impact-factor international journals including Critical Reviews in Environmental Science & Technology, Bioresources Technology, Journal of Hazardous Materials, Biochemical Engineering Journal, Environmental Modeling & Software, Applied Energy, Journal of Cleaner Production, Renewable and Sustainable Energy Reviews, Journal of Loss Prevention in Process industries, , Trans IChemE (UK), Trans AIChE (USA), etc. The centre has also been providing expert advice to government departments, industry, and academia across the world. The Hirsch Index of the centre’s publications as per SCOPUS is 22, which is among the highest in the departments dealing with environmental engineering in India. Several of the publications have become citation classics in the fields of chemical and environmental engineering. The centre’s efforts in innovative teaching and curriculum development have also resulted in the creation of 33 popular textbooks and reference books, published by Oxford University Press, Prentice-Hall, Orient Longman, Springer, Elsevier, Taylor & Francis, etc.
