As a part of the “Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav” campaign, the Department of Students’ Affairs at SRM University-AP is organising an awareness programme to avoid the threat of single-use plastics. Ms Janki Govani, Environment Advisor at Corpseed ITES Pvt. Ltd will be the guest speaker of the event scheduled to be held on October 28, 2021, at 6.30 pm.
Between 4 and 12 million metric tonnes of plastic enter the ocean each year due to rising plastic production, low recycling rates, and poor waste management—enough to cover every foot of coastline on the earth! In the next 20 years, that figure is expected to quadruple. Plastic pollution is one of the most serious threats to the health of the world’s oceans. However, there are a variety of plastic pollution solutions that you may get involved in. Join this engaging webinar to know more!
About the Speaker:
Ms Janki Govani is currently serving as Environment Advisor at Corpseed ITES Pvt. Ltd., Noida, Uttar Pradesh. Her major work involves advisory for plastic waste management, plastic waste recycling plant setup, extended producer responsibility (EPR), e-waste management, hazardous waste treatment and biomedical waste management. She has pursued MTech in Environmental Engineering earning a Gold medal from Marwadi University, Rajkot, Gujarat. She has worked on various plastic waste projects that are published as 2 articles and 4 book chapters on various international platforms. She has also been awarded for her work on making bioplastics from Gujarat Cleaner Production Centre. Her major area of interest is plastic waste management and waste-to-energy from refused derived fuel.
Tune in to this informative awareness programme on plastic pollution on October 28, 2021, at 6.30 pm.
