About the College
The college is an autonomous institution funded by Government of Puducherry and is affiliated to Pondicherry University which is a Central University of Government of India.
Energy is an important ingredient in the development of any country. India imports petroleum to an extent of 80% of its total requirement. It implies that oil prices and oil availability are not under our control and such a kind of dependence on imports leads to energy insecurity. In this context, renewable sources of energy especially bioenergy gains significance. Besides, biomass is a storehouse of various chemicals. Much advancement has taken place in the utilization of biomass for deriving energy as well as chemicals.
The NCECB will bring together professionals who will show-case the progress achieved by them in the field of biomass research. The conference will have (i) plenary sessions of eminent professors from IITs, IISc, NITs, Anna University, etc., (ii) oral presentations by the researchers / professionals working in this field, and (iii) exhibition.
