Nano-biotechnology Centre (NBC)

The TERI-Deakin Nano-biotechnology Centre was established in 2011 by TERI’s Biotechnology and Bio resources Division in collaboration with Deakin University, Australia with the mandate of developing innovative Nano-biotechnology-based solutions to address current challenges in the field of agriculture and environment. It brings together the complimentary expertise of TERI in agriculture, biotechnology, green energy, bioremediation and nanotechnology and Deakin's expertise in material, chemical and physical sciences. Jointly supported by both organizations, the Centre aims to take global space through the Nano biotechnology interventions in sustainable agriculture, environment, and energy by employing or developing multidisciplinary approaches, tools and technologies.

Nano-devices for Agriculture & Environment:
Many diverse opportunities for nanotechnology exist to play an important role in agriculture and food production. Productivity enhancement through nanotechnology-driven precision farming and maximization of output and minimization of inputs through better monitoring and targeted action is desirable. Nanotechnology enables plants to use water, pesticides, and fertilizers more efficiently. Nanotechnology use may bring potential benefits to farmers through food production and to the food industry through development of innovative products through food processing, preservation, and packaging. Anticipated agri-food nanotechnology applications include nanosensors/nanobiosensors for detecting pathogens and for soil quality and for plant health monitoring, nanoporous zeolites for slow-release and efficient dosage of water and fertilizers for plants and of nutrients and drugs for livestock, nanocapsules for agrochemical delivery, creating biofuels, nanocomposites for plastic film coatings used in food packaging, antimicrobial nanoemulsions for applications in decontamination of food and nanobiosensors for identification of pathogen contamination.
