About IPCA Centre for Waste Management and Research

IPCA Centre for Waste Management and Research is established jointly by Indian Pollution Control Association and TERI School of Advanced Studies. We are instrumental in undertaking evidence-based research, developing technology, bringing innovations, conducting capacity building programmes, and developing sustainable supply chain of waste. We publish insights by eliciting inputs through organizing working group sessions, conferences and collaborating with similar national and international institutes. We also enroll research scholars in the Centre for their Ph.D Degree.
Through our activities, we aim to contribute immensely to generating data on waste management which can inform policy interventions and lead to sustainable solutions in tackling waste.
To successfully accomplish project objectives and goals, the centre draws knowledge and experience of large pool of faculty from TERI SAS, researchers from TERI and action researchers from IPCA.
