Renewable Energy and other Green Technologies

WZCC Mumbai Chapter has organized for its members a Program on “Renewal Energy and other Green Technologies”. The program seeks to inform us how best we can economise on the use of fossil fuel and see how we can use the renewable sources of power at our command such as hydro, solar, wind, biomass, wave and geothermal to meet our needs.

The field of Green technology is expected to bring innovation and changes in daily life and which will be of similar in magnitude to the “Information Technology” explosion over the last two decades.

In the present day context Renewable Energy and Green Technology is also viewed as a big business opportunity.

The talk will indicate the direction in which business and technology is likely to develop in the future.

The talk on this subject will be by Prof. Soli J. Arceivala, Environmental Engineer, from Harvard University USA who also introduced a post-graduate course on Environmental Engineering in 1959 at VJTI, Bombay University. He is also the first person in India to establish a Consultancy Company specializing in water and environmental engineering work as far back as 1961, long before any legislations for pollution control existed. He was invited to join the UN/WHO as Regional Advisor, first with the European Region for 10 years and then as Chief of Environmental Health, South East Asia for 16 years.
