TERI-Deakin Nanobiotechnology Research Centre
The TERI-Deakin Nanobiotechnology Centre, a collaboration between TERI and Deakin University, Australia has been working on using nanobiotechnology to provide sustainable agriculture solutions
The TERI-Deakin Nanobiotechnology Centre (TDNBC) was established under this project in 2011 by TERI's Biotechnology and Bioresources Division in collaboration with Deakin University, Australia. Its mandate is to develop innovative nanobiotechnology-based solutions to address current challenges in the field of agriculture and environment.
The Centre brings together the complimentary expertise of TERI in agriculture, biotechnology, green energy, bioremediation and nanotechnology and Deakin University's expertise in material, chemical and physical sciences. Jointly supported by both organisations, the Centre aims to take global space through the nanobiotechnology interventions in sustainable agriculture, environment, and energy by employing or developing multidisciplinary approaches, tools and technologies.

Nano biofertilisers can be a 'disruptive technology' in Indian agriculture
There are no dangers of fertiliser runoffs that contaminate natural water bodies and adversely impact human health and environment. Also, miniscule amounts of nano biofertilisers give maximum impact, making these a much better an option than the chemical ones.
