What is IGCW


  • “IGCW 2017 was yet another outstanding landmark since the inception of the event in 2009. Powered by creative, diligent and committed eco-conservers the 2017 event raised the bar to a higher level of sustainability narrative and can rightfully take its position as one among the few global transformational forums. IGCW also has become an acronym for Integrated Green and Connected World”

    -- R.Rajagopal, KnowGenix, 2017.
  • overall experience is that, much knowledge is gathered at IGCW and means for green Chemistry

  • My experience at attend this conference I's very nice I good a Chance to interact with many eminent personalities

  • STEP winning the SERB-IGCW 2017 award was a good boost to the efforts STEP team and our partners in this technology, have taken in last 2 years to demonstrate and commercialize the novel Downflow Gas Contactor (DGC) technology for use in effluent treatment and chemical reactions. We are happy that SERB and IGCW have recognized our innovative technology through this award. Weare now looking forward to successfully commercialize the technology for effluent treatment. It was my pleasure to attend IGCW 2017 conference at Ramada Hotel last week. I was impressed with the participation and contents of the presentations. The thematic sessions were interesting and useful to participants as I gathered from persons I interacted with. It is heartening to see that more persons are exploring green chemistry & technology in India. The movement & thought process which Newreka & Green ChemisTree have started, is taking shape and will help the chemical industry in India. Great job by Newreka & GCT teams! Our company had a booth in the conference. It was a good experience for us, as STEP team had good interactions with many customers who visited our booth. We have received encouraging response from companies who visited our booth. We wish you & IGCW team more success in next conference in 2019, and will look forward to participate in it.

    -- MG Palekar, Step Solutions Pvt ltd
  • Firstly, we would like to thank Team IGCW for presenting us with the SERB-IGCW 2017 for Green Chemistry in the Green Start-up companies’ category. It was a great honour to participate in IGCW and get shortlisted amongst highly deserving and reputable contestants. We were overwhelmed with the hospitality offered to us by the organizers and the entire committee members of the IGCW. We also truly appreciate the efforts put by your TEAM who left no stone unturned to make it a successful event. In conclusion, we would like to say that this award has bolstered our confidence and lifted our spirits to further our work in the field of Green Engineering.

    -- Mr.Venkatesan Rajendran, Growtech Innovations India Pvt Ltd.
  • We are very happy to receive the SERB-IGCW Award 2017 in Technology Developer Category. Award like this motivates companies like us to invest more efforts in creating Technologies which creates difference.
    Thank you very much to Jury Panel, SERB & IGCW!! Hope to have one more nomination in IGCW- 2019.

    -- Vikram Dhumal, GEIST research India Pvt Ltd.
  • Thank you very much to organizing committee of IGCW conference. As a student I personally found that this is a first conference in my life which was really connecting multidisciplinary fields under one roof of IGCW. It is a really the best platform for young researchers to get glimpses about the current status of chemical industries, research and market scenario in India. I really impressed by the invited talks which was organized in IGCW conference. SERB-IGCW award is not only monetary recognition for me but it has occupied more precious space in my heart. It's my great pleasure that I have received this prestigious award in front of many dignitaries/experts in different fields. Monetary recognition of Rs.50000-/ will directly or indirectly help me to smooth the current economical challenges in my research. My tentative plan is to buy the laptop for secured storage of my research data.

    -- Ms.Nalinee Suryawanshi, CSIR – NCL
  • I want to express my sincere thanks to IGCW for recognizing me and the green technology on ‘biohydrogen production for waste feedstock’ as well for the SERB-IGCW Award 2017. I am truly humbled and honored to receive it. Specifically, by selecting our technology, I consider it as a very vital step to promote the technology from pilot scale to commercial level. The recognition conferred to this green technology will help and motivate us to take positive steps to promote and commercialize the technology with more confidence and enthusiasm. This will obviously pave way to much awaited ‘hydrogen economy’ which is needed for the sustainable future. I would like to express my deep sense of gratitude to IGCW for recognizing the technology at the appropriate time and focusing it to the stakeholders. I would like to congratulate IGCW for taking up the excellent initiative to recognize the work going on in green chemistry domain from both academia and industry as well. I believe, this initiative will directly relate to the SDG goals and is crucial to promote sustainable community on the whole.

    -- Dr S Venkata Mohan – CSIR- IICT
  • I am very proud of make part of your community and you are starting to become a tradition in my calendar! Great job! Our industry is going to be exposed to massive changes and India/ Green Chemistry are going to be at the fore front!

    -- Rafael cayuela, Chief Economist, The Dow Chemical Company
  • It was great for me to see, as an Indian living abroad, how India is taking its responsibility seriously, and your great efforts to spread awareness (not all countries are doing that). Even though we had some “issues”, we really enjoyed the conference. Karim got a lot of traction after his talk, and we have started discussions with many companies, interested to know more about Green Chemistry. It’s like Paul Anastas says: “Green chemistry is the best chemistry”, why shouldn’t all companies want that. Looking forward to meeting you again soon.
