Ongoing Projects

Development of polyolefin composites loaded with co-microencapsulated intumescent fire retardant system along with nanosized wear resistant additives

July 17, 2017

In this study a high temperature charring agent i.e. propane terephthalamide will be synthesized. This will be co-micro encapsulated with APP in melamine-formaldehyde resin. The microcapsules thus developed will be blended along with nanosized silicon nitride in LLDPE, PP, LDPE and HDPE. The microcapsules will enhance the fire retardancy. Thus, the developed blend will have effective fire retardancy.

TERI and IGES, along with interested stakeholders from India and Japan, will operationalize the Japan-India Technology Matchmaking Platform (JITMAP) which was initiated in the Financial Year 2016 to promote the dissemination of Japanese low carbon technology in India. Specifically the following key activities will be conducted in the Financial Year 2017: (i) Information collection and sharing; (ii) Feasibility studies; (iii) Dissemination and capacity building; (iv) Outreach activities.

Transforming Pathardi Village into a Model Village

June 13, 2017
| Health & Nutrition

TERI has been extensively working in Pathardi village, Mokhada in Palghar for over 4 years implementing several projects to make the village sustainable in terms of food, energy and water security. Creating better livelihood opportunities for the villagers of Pathardi, especially the women, are important in order to achieve the broader objectives of the project. Sustainable livelihood generation ensures a better shock and stress adaptability, better nutrition for the family members, better access to health services and the resultant low morbidity, thus leading to a better quality of life.

| Environment

The project objective is to study the Economic Rate of Return (ERR) for various Renewable Energy Technologies (RETs) in India. The study comprises determination of Financial Rate of Return (FRR) for various RETs (solar/wind/biomass/ small hydro etc.) based on primary research and estimation of ERR based on secondary research of socio-economic costs and benefits from each RET, e.g. savings in carbon emissions, local air pollution, avoided health impacts, employment generation etc.

Traffic and air quality in India: Technologies and attitudes (TAQIITA) (Indo-Finland collaborative project)

| Environment

Fine particulate matter is the pollutant of most concern in developing countries today on the basis of exposure, toxicity, and ambient concentrations. Two major contributors in transport to fine particulate air pollution are diesel vehicles and two-stroke engine gasoline vehicles. Due to strong motorization, India has become one of the biggest emitters of atmospheric pollutants. The country's fuel consumption in the transport sector has approximately doubled in every ten years since 1980.
