The National Environmental Engineering Research Institute (NEERI) is a research institute created and funded by Government of India.National Environmental Engineering Research Institute (NEERI), a constituent laboratory of CSIR endeavours to provide Leadership in environmental science and engineering for sustainable development. NEERI dedicates itself in the service of mankind by providing innovative and effective solutions to environmental and natural resource problems.
It was established in Nagpur in 1958 with focus on water supply, sewage disposal, communicable diseases and to some extent on industrial pollution and occupational diseases found common in post-independent India. NEERI is a pioneer laboratory in the field of environmental science and engineering and part of Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR). NEERI has five zonal laboratories at Chennai, Delhi, Hyderabad, Kolkata and Mumbai. NEERI falls under the Ministry of Science and Technology (India) of central government.

The interviews for the post were held on July 9 at Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR). Six candidates, including Asha Juwarkar, head eco-restoration division of Neeri, were vying for the post. Wate, present head of the environmental impact and risk assessment (EIRA) division, as well as Chakrabarti, who were working as scientist 'G', have been elevated to scientist 'H' category.
Wate could not be contacted as he was in Mumbai. Known for his hard work and expertise in EIRA, Wate has been working for Neeri from the beginning of his career. Hailing from Hinganghat, Wate is an MSc in biochemistry from Nagpur University. He is known among his colleagues and scientific community for his exceptional work.Some major projects brought to Neeri include the Kalpasar project in Gujarat and the famous Setusamudram project. He is associated with number of projects in EIRA including the country's leading nuclear power plant.

NEERI2010 is the second Networking Event of its kind, providing a follow-up to NEERI2009 held in Helsinki. The goal of NEERI2010 is to exchange ideas on a number of topics relevant for research infrastructures and to clear common ground on the further development and application of these topics. NEERI focuses on what we share and what we can learn from each other. Examples of such commonalities are architectural issues, communication with users and integration of services and tools.

There has been a quest for eco-friendly Ganesh idols for quite some time. And for the past three years, Pramod Vitthal Palav, a resident of Kankavali in Sindhudurg district, has been experimenting formulae to come up with such idols.In August, in a special session organised by the Maharashtra Pollution Control Board (MPCB) for the benefit of the city’s Ganesh mandals, Palav demonstrated one of his formulae.

A 15-member team from the National Environmental Engineering Research Institute (NEERI) has also started collecting water and sediment samples from “new in-between areas” such as Thane creek and Vashi apart from those reported such as Sassoon Dock, Sewri, Colaba and Alibaug.We have started analysing the samples collected during the spill. Collection of samples will continue because we could get surprises or may also need to redo the process in some areas,” said Rakesh Kumar, director, NEERI, Mumbai.
