The CENSTEC was established during the year 2014. Its objectives are to promote interdisciplinary activities that lead to sustainability associated with Built Environment, to develop cost effective solutions in the areas of green building materials, health monitoring of structural systems, water, air, solid waste management, renewable energy related to environmental resources and also to develop technologies for cleaner production.
The research activities of the CENSTEC includes synthesis of green building materials (artificial aggregates from ceramic waste, lathe waste, plastic waste, fly ash and GGBS), health monitoring of structural systems, production of renewable energy (hydrogen from sulphide wastewater, biogas production from solid waste, energy efficient buildings), treatment of pollutants and CO2 sequestration.
The 1stInternational Conference on Sustainable Environment & Energy (ICSEE – 17) organized by Hindustan Institute of Technology & Science witnessed a phenomenal success through the active participation of Leaders, Scientists, Scholars and Academicians who are actively involved in the research and policy making in sustainable environment and energy. International Journal of Hydrogen Energy (IJHE) brought a special issue covering a large number of scientific works presented in the 1st ICSEE-17. It covers topics related to hydrogen production, fuel cells, super capacitors, and batteries, where authors shown various aspects and latest trends involved in the development of their respective field.
Motivated by the successful organization and outcome of the constructive scientific deliberations along with brain storming sessions of 1stICSEE – 17, the present 2nd International Conference on Sustainable Environment & Energy (2nd ICSEE – 19) is being organized. It aims at a common platform for the Scholars, Scientists, Academicians and Industrial persons who are actively involved in the promotion and execution of research in the field of sustainable environment and energy. This conference will discuss the current trends and developments in topics like sustainable building materials, waste management, hydrogen production and storage, sustainable energy production, materials and manufacturing etc.,
