ALWAYS WORKING FOR SUSTAINABLE TOMORROW
Waste Management offers a variety of roll-offs for almost any need.

Research

Team SCWRM is dedicated to providing indigenous, need-based scientific solutions through transformational and applied research for the societal benefit.

Besides the fundamentals, the interdisciplinary diverse research at SCWRM accommodates aspects of biological, chemical, biotechnological, medical, engineering and management sciences among several other fields. The Research Centre is focused to contribute significantly towards utilization of wasted resources for reuse, recycling and resource recovery concomitantly providing smart and green solutions for health, sanitation, energy, and environment. 

In addition to the in-house research currently going on, the Centre has initiated national and international collaborations to develop a truly multi-disciplinary network of researchers working in collaboration to address the global challenge of waste management. 

RESEARCH AT SCWRM

Research at SCWRM is centered on developing need-based solutions for the management of waste resources. We believe in promoting sustainable living for all stakeholders and hence work towards strengthening ecological health of the planet by varied initiatives, extracting value from all available waste resources, conserving natural resources by way of promoting reuse to the possible extent, and enhancing and promoting societal well-being. We are committed to working on diverse environmental issues, reducing carbon footprint and in promoting circular economy. In addition to the basic research on areas ranging from microbial processes, bioremediation, solid and liquid waste resource management and sustainable agriculture, we also work on creating awareness on managing and sustaining better waste practices. Research at SCWRM exploits the microbial world and microbial based solutions for various agricultural and environmental applications. Our research is highly translational and hence we work in tandem, and in a close association with, the local community and policy makers for the implementation of various sustainable products and practices.
