Facilities & Resources

Vel Tech TBI has state- of- the- art facilities to train and facilitate young graduates to become entrepreneurs in the field of E-Waste Management and other related areas like 3D Printing, Embedded Systems/VLSI, MAV/ Robotics, Automobile, Renewable Energy and IT/ITES.E-Waste Management: A Training Centre, established for processing E-waste. The Centre is equipped with the following facilities capable of treating the waste under the three stage treatment processes.

Manual operations

Suitable Workbenches and Hand Tools are provided to the trained work men for carrying out manual operations involving dismantling of E-Hardware, segregating and storing of various components so as to keep them ready for the second stage operations. Many Computers are dismantled and various components are segregated for feeding to the second stage operations.

Discarded articles made out of non-bio degradable Plastics materials such as Polyethylene, polypropylene, polystyrene, polyurethane, polyester, polyethylene, nylon, Kevlar, Teflon etc. pose enormous environmental problems. As such, these are to be treated appropriately and find alternate uses for the treated materials. In order to treat such materials, the TBI has installed Facilities like Plastics Crusher and Plastics Baler for processing the Wastes and dispose them for alternate uses.

Machine operations

Machines consisting of Shredders and different types of Separators equipped with Conveyors for material handling, Control panels etc. are under installation. Using these machines, the E-Wastes will be separated in to Ferrous, Non Ferrous and non metals.

Laboratory analytical work and Research on Separation of Heavy metals & Noble metals

With a full- fledged Analytical Laboratory consisting of essential Lab Equipment / Instruments and sophisticated Equipment like Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer created under VelTech TBI, the focus on the important stage of separation of metals can be carried out by research mode. The Incubatees with business interests on E-Waste Management will be oriented on the three important R’s in preserving the Environment, namely “Reduce, Reuse and Recycle” principles and trained in E-waste treatment processes so that they can make business venture in this important area.

bio-waste management

Dealing with Bio-Wastes (both solid and liquid types) and arriving at safe methods of treatment and disposal require extensive analysis of the samples to be carried out in the laboratory to study the effects of the contents and prescribe Solution for disposal or converting into useful byproducts. Typically, the solid wastes generated by agricultural and domestic areas are taken up for treatment by composting methods for deriving useful products like bio manure etc.

The Liquid wastes, primarily the Effluents generated by Leather Tanning Industry and Textile Industry are analyzed and treated from the point of view of separating heavy metals like chromium and harmful chemicals like various dyes and the treated water can be used for gardening and other useful purposes.

With a view to focus on Bio- Waste Management, the VelTech TBI has set up an air-conditioned Lab consisting of state of art Equipment and Instruments. To name a few are

1. “SHIMADZU” Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer model AA- 7000 PC based and operating on WINDOWS Vista WizAArd Software with Double Beam Optics
2. “CYBER LAB” Digital UV spectrophotometer
3. BOD Incubator
4. Bacteriological Incubator
5. “REMI” Orbital shaking Incubator
6. Autoclave
7. Fume Exhaust Hood
8. “REMI” High speed Centrifuge etc.

More than thirty such facilities with required Chemicals, Glassware etc. are available in the Laboratory. The Incubatees can avail the facilities at very nominal Testing charges to get the required analysis done for their Business ventures.

Bio Incubator

An Incubator cell has been created to facilitate the Incubatees in having a separate office and transacting their business. The Pre-Incubation space/cell (150 to 200 Sq.ft ) will be provided free of cost for first 18 Months and from Nineteenth month onwards would be charged at the rate of Rs. 7/- per Square feet. The cell will be provided with furnished and equipped with individual terminals and Internet facilities so that each Incubatee can utilize the facilities for the Business networking purposes.. Any specific requirement to meet the demands of the incubatee may be created at additional cost by Incubator; the cost may be borne by the incubatee.
