Hi this is Hardik. I am a student of Institute of Chemical Technology-Mumbai (formerly known as UDCT). I am currently Presiding the Annual Technical Festival of our college named EXERGY.

Our theme for the year 2011 is Think Different. Be Innovative.

Via EXERGY we conduct Paper Presentations, Poster Presentations, Industry Defined Problems, Chemical Quizzes etc.

To give the attendees a deeper exposure to chemistry, we are also conducting a Lecture Series where Scientists are invited to throw some light on the upcoming clean and green technology.

This years theme will also be used to change the chemical industry's bad image for creating pollution and depleting resources by spreading green chemistry's awareness and sustainability.

EXERGY-2011 is expected to be the best under-graduate technical festival in relation to chemistry in INDIA.

We are expecting footfall of 8000 people from 150 different colleges all over INDIA.

Being a part of IYC 2011 will help creating awareness with an impact. We also being in nexus with both the print and electronic media, will help publicising IYC 2011 to a wide range of audience.
