News Update

Deadline for Submission of Extended Abstract in ATIPC-2020 has been extended till 20th November, 2020. Intimation of Acceptance: 27th November, 2020. Deadline of Registration and Submission of Full-length Paper: 30th November, 2020.


Industrial activities are developing day by day with the concomitant release of a variety of pollutants in environment. A large number of pollutants in air, water and soil medium now remain persistent due to their low degradation potential. In case of highly degradable pollutants, the quantum of generation becomes enormous in most cases, causing severe adverse effects. Thus improper waste management of various industries poses a serious threat to the ecological system and biodiversity. In spite of source reduction, recycling and recovery a number of industries fail to comply with the stringent standards for effluent discharge, stack emission and disposal of solid waste. Therefore, various state-of-art technologies need to be developed, which will ensure efficient waste management practice leading to zero discharge, zero emission and zero disposal. However, it becomes a great challenge to all sectors of industries to maintain desired environmental standard under a competitive market scenario. In order to address the above issues and to explore the newer technologies in the arena of industrial pollution control, the International Conference on Advanced Technologies for Industrial Pollution Control (ATIPC ‒ 2018) was held during December 17 ‒ 19, 2018. The present international conference is the second version of the earlier conference.
The conference is oriented to create an effective forum for the environmental scientists, engineers, technologist and the industry persons for sharing their research initiatives and real-life experience through oral presentation of the technical papers on relevant focus themes.


The Second International Conference on Advanced Technologies in Industrial Pollution Control (ATIPC-2020) will be conducted through on-line mode under Google Meet Platform. There will be a schedule of various activities of the conference including Paper presentation sessions with specific Meeting Links. All such links will be communicated to the participants well in advance. Participants should have an active Google mail account for joining in all the sessions of the conference. On clicking the link sent to them, participants will be able to enter their desired session.


The International Conference (ATIPC-2020) is planned to include the following themes.

Water quality monitoring and treatment in industrial area

Industrial effluent treatment, reuse and conservation

Monitoring of industrial emission and control

Industrial solid waste management

Handling and disposal of hazardous waste

Role of EIA and EMP in industrial pollution control

Case Studies on industrial pollution control

Industrial noise control and radioactive waste                 management

Innovative technologies in industrial waste                     management


Extended Abstracts in given format are invited from Academicians, Scientists, Engineers and Research scholars in the allied field of industrial pollution control. Such Abstracts should be formatted in MS-Word in A4 sheet clearly mentioning name and contact mail of all the contributing authors.The Template is available in the website. EXTENDED ABSTRACTS SHOULD BE SUBMITTED THROUGH ONLINE SYSTEM.


Extended Abstracts of all the accepted papers will be published in the Conference Proceedings with ISBN. The papers presented in technical sessions will be peer-reviewed and selected ones will be published in one or more Special Issues of JICS.

Dr. Sachchida Nand Tripathi is a Higher Administrative Grade (Senior) Professor and Head of Department of Civil Engineering at IIT Kanpur. He is the recipient of Shanti Swarup Bhatnagar Award – the highest recognition in Science and Technology awarded by the Government of India. He is an elected fellow of the Indian National Science Academy (INSA), Indian National Academy of Engineering (INAE) and National Academy of Sciences of India (NASI) and recipient of the Distinguished Alumnus award of Banaras Hindu University. He was a Senior Fellow at NASA Goddard Space Flight Centre. He has made impactful contribution to address challenges of Air Pollution and Climate Change. Prof Tripathi has built ground-breaking innovative approaches for indigenously built low-cost sensor-based network technologies for nation-wide urban air quality monitoring and Real Time Source Apportionment (RTSA). His work on Taj Mahal discolouration led to policy interventions in Agra city. His pioneering work provides evidence of aerosol-induced cloud invigoration effect (AIvE) during the Indian summer monsoon. Another study led by him provided robust evidence that high rainfall downwind of metropolitan cities can be an outcome of a synergy of coupling between urban land use and land cover, and Cloud Condensation Nuclei-induced AIvE. These findings are significant for future urban planning to avoid flash floods. He is also the lead Coordinator of the National Knowledge Network, formed under the National Clean Air Mission and an expert member of the Steering Committee, NCAP, MoEFCC and Member, Executive Council, Climate Change Program, Department of Science and Technology. He is the Principal Investigator of National Aerosol Facility created with the support of Department of Atomic Energy.
