Aims and Objectives

• Environmental Toxicology – cause and effect- analysis of
  environmental contaminants (e.g. PAH’s, PCB’s,
  pesticides, Heavy metals, dioxins/dibenzofurans etc.)
  and their impact on eco-system (soil, water, air, flora and
  fauna)

• Safety and Management- Bio-remediation, site
  reclamation, environmental monitoring and data
  collection, waste water treatment, solid waste
  management, E- waste management technologies

Projects:
        Current:
    Ministry of Environment and
    Forests
•   Analysis of surface and ground
    water    contamination    through
    indiscriminate        use      of
    Agrochemicals (pesticides) use in
    the region of crops of maximum
    pesticide usage (Rice, cotton and
    vegetables) ~30Lakh
•   Vegetable and soil samples are
    also being analyses for pesticide
    residue. In addition, training to
    farmers for judicious use of
    pesticide including IPM
• Among the sample analysis 40% of
organochlorine pesticide were detected
above MRL value of 0.1 ppb
• Organochlorine     pesticides      were
detected more in river samples then the
tube well samples. There level range
from 0.124 to 1.894 in river samples,
while in groundwater samples it ranged
from0.017 to 0.917ppb
• Among the sample analysis 26% of
organophosphate       pesticide      were
detected    above    MRL      value.   In
organophosphate pesticide Phorate ,
chlorpyriphos and Quinalaphos were
found to be above MRL value
• Phorate range from 0.141 to 1.914 ppb,
chlorpyriphos range from 0.104 to 0.834
ppb and Quinalaphos range from 0.192 to
1.926 ppb
Department of Science and
  Technology
• To study the dissipation
  leaching and persistence of
  chlorpyrifos in three types of
  soils with different pH i.e.
  acid, alkali and neutral
• As chlorpyrifos is being used
  indiscriminately in India for
  termite control in household
  and in agricultural practices
  for various crop protection
  packages without testing soil
  properties above parameters
  are being studied taking soil
  of different types from various
  parts of India
       Ministry of Earth
          Sciences
Study of contamination of soil
and water through heavily
loaded unlined drains in Delhi
The project work is planned specially
Keeping in view the problem of
groundwater contamination in Indian
context through unlined drains which are
over loaded, with sewage waste from huge
urban population and also waste from
industries, lysimetric studies are
important to know the possible sources
and types of groundwater contamination
through leaching
