One Week Advanced Training Program on POLLUTION MONITORING TECHNIQUES AND INSTRUMENTATION
Date: March 14–18, 2016
Centre for Science and Environment, a non-profit organisation set up Pollution Monitoring Laboratory (PML) in 2000 to monitor environmental pollution. PML is an ISO certified laboratory with highly qualified and experienced staff that exercise Analytical Quality Control and meticulously follow Good Laboratory Practices. It is equipped with sophisticated stateof-art equipments including GC, GC-MS, HPLC, AAS, microwave assisted digestion system, PM2.5 & PM10 analyser, ozone monitor, sound level meter, EMF radiation measurement system etc. and has facilities for microbiological analysis also.
PML has conducted several scientific studies that have brought government food standards and food safety policy changes and new regulations in India. This includes pesticides in bottled water, pesticides in soft drinks, phthalates in toys, lead in paints, antibiotics in honey and antibiotics in chicken, etc
PML has been organising training and capacity building programmes for Central and State Pollution Control Boards for mid/senior level officers on water quality, air quality, trace metals and organic analysis. The participants get hands-on experience on the use of sophisticated analytical equipments for analysis of air, water and soil pollution parameters. The programme includes lectures, demonstrations and experiments and on latest equipments and technologies for pollution monitoring.
