NEERI’s Chief Scientist Nitin Labhsetwar said, “The gigantic increase in diesel-run vehicles, massive use of diesel in generators and mobile towers emitting tons and tons of hazardous gases containing deadly combination of carbon dioxide and carbon mono oxide.”
The National Environment Engineering Research Institute (NEERI) and Qushu Industrial University, Japan, have signed “Common Research Agreement” for reducing poisonous emission caused by thousands of vehicles and other equipments run by diesel. The emission contains harmful particles of carbon dioxide and carbon mono oxide, poisonous gases which damage the environment balance and takes heavy toll of human beings and animals as well. The “Common Research Agreement” signed by NEERI and Qushu University will jointly work for Government of India in reducing the diesel emission, said NEERI’s Chief Scientist Nitin Labhsetwar at a press conference held on Monday.
The NEERI Scientist further said, “The gigantic increase in diesel-run vehicles, massive use of diesel in generators and mobile towers is emitting tons and tons of hazardous gases containing deadly combination of carbon dioxide and carbon mono oxide. The emission of hazardous gases have been damaging the delicate environment and creating havoc for mankind by way of fatal diseases related to the environment. The research is going on the technology which would stop emission at the very source and absorb the gases. The Professor and Scientist of Japan’s Qushu Industrial University Dr Yasutaki Teraoka is leading the team that will work with NEERI on the project,” Nitin Labhsetwar said.
Dr Teraoka said, “The hi-tech technology has to be developed for India at lesser cost. The Agreement will give the necessary momentum for developing the technology. India’s students are of curious nature and the Agreement would provide the scientists of NEERI and Qushu University, students an opportunity to work together,” the Japanese scientist stated.
