Our research expertise Indo:UK Centre for Environment Research and Innovation

Our research applies multidisciplinary environmental science skills at the interface of ecology and engineering. The University of Greenwich is working extensively on contamination remediation via waste-derived products with potential for use in sustainable construction materials. Similarly, the research expertise of CSIR-CIMFR extends from underground and surface mining to industrial waste management. Identification of various environmental problems and their value-added management is one of the major thrust areas of CSIR-CIMFR research.

Resource and waste management

Centered on:

  • End of waste : hazardous and non-hazardous industrial and biomass waste valorization
  • Carbon dioxide sequestration and carbon foot print studies
  •  Use of geo-materials and waste materials as construction materials

Contamination remediation

Our research into contamination remediation includes the application of chemical and biological methods for land and water remediation.

Ecological restoration

The themes of ecological restoration include:

  • Reclamation of mine wastelands and degraded lands
  • Soil nutrient dynamics in alternate land use systems
