Veena Sahajwalla wins Jubilee Professorship Award

Veena Sahajwalla wins Jubilee Professorship Award

Bengaluru, Feb 14 (UNI) Indian-born scientist Professor Veena Sahajwalla, who is currently Director of the Centre for Sustainable Materials Research and Technology (SMaRT) at the University of New South Wales (UNSW- Sydney), has been awarded the Jubilee Professorship by the Indian Academy of Sciences. She is the first female to have received the prestigious accolade, according to a release here today. Professor Sahajwalla is at present working on a mission to deal with the omnipresent crisis of e-waste in India. She is piloting micro-factories to turn unwanted electronics into valuable metal alloys. These factories promise a safe new way for poor communities around the country to generate an income from the production of metal alloys. She was the inventor of the innovative Polymer Injection Technology which converts old rubber tyres into metal alloys that make ‘green steel’. The Indian Academy of Sciences was founded in 1934 by Nobel Prize-winning physicist Sir C.V. Raman and it celebrated its platinum jubilee in 2009. The Council of the Academy had instituted the Jubilee Professorship in connection with the event. In her reaction, Professor Sahajwalla said, "It is a huge privilege to have been conferred this prestigious professorship by the Academy. India urgently needs a safe, low cost recycling solution for e-waste. Our approach is to enable every local community to transform their e-waste into valuable metal alloys, instead of leaving old devices in drawers or sheds, or sending them to landfill." She said that India is the fifth largest producer of e-waste in the world with around 18.5 lakh tonnes of it heading for landfill every year. With more people using phones and computers, e-waste is becoming a rising problem for the country. UNI MSP CS 1745
