            The aim of this Conference is to explore the advances on design and operation of chemical plants, development of advanced/ novel functional materials and processes, analyzing substances, measuring the physical properties of substances and testing theories. This event brings you an immense opportunity to interact with young scholars and scientific delegates to utilize the expertise and novelties that brings a new era for innovations in the fields of Chemical Engineering, Energy and environmental engineering for sustainable ecosystem. As part of the golden jubilee celebration of chemical engineering department, life time achievement awards and young researcher awards will be given at the end of the conference.


            National Institute of Technology (formerly known as Regional Engineering College) Tiruchirappalli, situated in the heart of Tamil Nadu on the banks of river Cauvery, was started as a joint and co-operative venture of the Government of India and the Government of Tamil Nadu in 1964 with a view to catering to the needs of man-power in technology for the country. The college has been conferred with autonomy in financial and administrative matters to achieve rapid development. Because of this rich experience, this institution was declared an Institution of national importance and renamed as National Institute of Technology. NITT was registered under Societies Registration Act XXVII of 1975
