Bennett University (Times of India Group) organised the 1st national seminar on “Green Biotechnology and its Impact on Indian Economy” at its campus in Greater Noida on Thursday, February 14, 2019.  The intent of the event was to provide a platform to various participants of the industry including producers, policymakers, academic research institutions, commercial biomass growers, traders, regulators, etc. to brainstorm on maximizing outcomes in bio-economy and bio-entrepreneurship through bio-based products and technologies. 

The event had eminent thought leaders including Acharya Balkrishna, CEO, Patanjali Ayurved; Mr. Kishore Desai, OSD, Economic Advisory Council to the Prime Minister (EAC-PM) & NITI Aayog; Mr. Narendra Bhooshan, (IAS), CEO, Greater Noida Industrial Development Authority (GNIDA) to express their views on the future and direction of the Biotech industry from strategy, planning, evangelisation and industrial application perspective.

In addition, plenary speakers from prominent biotechnology organisations, including Emami Ltd., Panacea, Dabur India Ltd., Biocon Academy, Mrida, Evolva Biotech, etc. addressed to bring out gaps and opportunities in R&D and biotech education.     

Green Biotechnology has come into focus dues to rapid degradation of the environment caused by pollution intensive industrial processes, products and technologies. On the other hand, bio-based products made entirely or partially from biological biomass present a sustainable alternative to products solely produced by conventional and non-renewable resources and thus present the potential for a long-term shift away from fossil-based towards a bio-based economy.

Department of Biotechnology (DBT), Ministry of Science & Technology, Govt. of India has funded a multi-institutional network research programme to produce genetically authentic herbal biomass of high-value medicinal herbs and develop engineered production platforms for industrially important phytochemicals. 

The seminar was a part of the scientific collaboration between Bennett University; G.B. Pant National Institute of Himalayan Environment & Sustainable Development, Kullu, H.P.; and the Zandu Foundation for Health Care to develop technologies for mass production of quality herbal biomass as per the needs of industry as well as creating entrepreneurial avenues among rural communities.
 
The seminar aimed to ignite enthusiasm and bring together different stakeholders from biotechnology industry to deliberate on maximizing entrepreneurial avenues among rural communities, right from the production of biomass to processing bio-based products and marketing. The national seminar was structured in two sessions with expert panel discussions on; i) Biomass Production, Bio-based Products & Rural Entrepreneurship; ii) Biotech Professionals in the 21st Century.
