Vertical growth in the use of polymer products is responsible for the associated environmental issues. End of life treatment plays crucial role in the solution to this problem. Polymers by nature are non-degradable and stay for long time in the same state under the earth. Trials on biodegradable plastics and polymers are not convincing so far and also not economical. They are associated with many other issues like usable life and early bio-degradability. Other properties are also at question mark. Under this scenario, it is very much essential for the polymer technocrats to think a fresh from the root. Hence, polymer processing and possible maximum reclamation is an issue to be raised among the researchers. As learning from the history, it is also essential to think about the ecofriendly polymer processing, product and reclamation process. This seminar is focusing on this burning issue and provides a platform to the researchers working in this area to showcase their work amongst the intellectuals of similar area. Participatory response to solve such issues may be very effective.


This seminar is primarily aimed at fruitful discussion on the possible solutions to the issues associated with the polymer industry in terms of life cycle and end of use treatment. It also aims the below mentioned, but not limited to, objectives:

·  To provide a platform to share the inventions in the area of polymer engineering.
· To identify the better solutions considering the environment effect due to the use of polymers.
· To suggest for the suitable alternatives against the use of conventional polymers in routine life.
· To suggest for the possible changes in the existing policies for polymer use and disposal norms.

· Polymer processing techniques
· Advanced techniques for polymer reclamation
· Eco-friendly polymer production
· Copolymers and Polymer Composites
· Recent Advances in Polymer Reaction Engineering
· Enhancement in the properties and characteristics of polymers
· Polymer Characterization and mathematical Modeling
· Alternatives to the polymers
· From end of pipe treatment to the sustainable development approach in polymer industry
· Environmental issues associated with polymer industry
Global trend in the polymer industry
· Global technological advancement trends in polymer industry
· Industry practices for polymer processing and reclamation
· Emergence of reclamation industry


The Institution of Engineers (India) or IEI is the largest multidisciplinary professional body that encompasses 15 engineering disciplines and gives engineers a global platform from which to share professional interest. IEI has membership strength of more than 0.7 million. Established in 1920, with its headquarters at 8 Gokhale Road, Kolkata – 700020, IEI has served the engineering fraternity for over nine decades. In this period of time it has been inextricably linked with the history of modern-day engineering.

In 1935, IEI was incorporated by Royal Charter and remains the only professional body in India to be accorded this honour. Today, its quest for professional excellence has given it a place of pride in almost every prestigious and relevant organization across the globe. IEI functions among professional engineers, academicians and research workers. It provides a vast array of technical, professional and supporting services to the Government, Industries, Academia and the Engineering fraternity, operating from 105 Centres located across the country. The Institution has established R&D centres at various locations in the country and also provides grant-in-aid to its members to conduct research and development on engineering subjects.

IEI conducts Section A & B Examinations in different Engineering disciplines, the successful completion of which is recognized as equivalent to Degree in appropriate field of Engineering of recognized Universities of India by the Ministry of Human Resources Development, Govt. of India. Every year as many as 90000 candidates appear for these exams. For details, please see:

The Gujarat State Centre

The Institution of Engineers (India) Bombay State Centre opened a Local Centre at Ahmedabad in the year 1959 after which this was established as Gujarat State in the year1960. ThisCentreisoneofthemostvibrantStatecentresofIEI.Thefoundation stone of building was laid by Hon’ble Governor of Gujarat K. K. Vishwanathan & the inauguration of the building was done by Shri Babubhai Jashbhai Patel, the then Chief Minister, Govt. of Gujarat. State Centre building bears the name of the building as ‘Bhaikaka Bhavan”, after the eminent engineer of Gujarat Shri Bhailalbhai Patel. Enriched with an excellent infrastructure in with library with 15000 books associated with small AC conference hall of 50 audience, AC board room with a capacity of 30 people with full audio-visual aids. Sitting capacity of hall is approximately 375 people. With Dias/Stagetoaccommodate15dignitories.

About Ahmedabad

Ahmedabad the biggest city of Gujarat, lies on 23.03o North Latitude and 72.58 East Longitude on the bank of River of Sabarmati. The city is well connected by rail, roads and airways with all the important cities of the country. It is Seventh largest city of the Country. Ahmedabad is now a district head quarter and many state-level and district- level offices are located in the city. City of Ahmedabad is unique even for India, for is bleeds harmoniously as ancient heritage with a vibrant present. A model city in terms of its ideals and aspirations, what is remarkable about Ahmedabad in it’s harmony between art and industry between a reverence to the past and a vision for the future. Dubbed as the Manchester of India in the days of yore. Ahmedabad is again at the crossroads in the history of its existence. Change came in the form of an announcement of Finance Minister declaring Ahmedabad as one of the mega cities of India. The path to the mega city status is fraught with challenges but keeping in mind the entrepreneurial nature of the citizens of Ahmedabad the city is bearing up to take up the challenge and truly acquire the status of MEGA CITY.
