Centre for Excellence in Agrinanotechnology (CEA)

The National Centre of Excellence for Advanced Research in Agricultural Nanotechnology is the first of its kind research platform in India, which endeavours to carry out end-to-end research to innovate green and efficacious for Agriculture, Environment and Energy.

Vision and Mission

Global food demand is increasing rapidly, as are the environmental impacts of agricultural expansion. Food demand is expected to increase anywhere between 59% to 98% by 2050.

A more efficient agricultural productivity approach – one that uses less agrochemicals and – is vital to meeting the global food demand along with protecting environment and human health. Nanotechnology is a multi-disciplinary scientific field with the potential to revolutionize the agriculture and food industry with new tools that promise to increase food production and control diseases in a sustainable manner. The Centre endeavours to innovate next generation nano-fertilizer, nano-pesticide and nanocarrier products and technologies. The developed products would provide twin solution by enhancing efficacy and reducing risk to human health and environment in comparison to their bulk-counterpart. The collaboration between TDNBC, TERI, New Delhi and its Partners – All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), Tamil Nadu Agricultural University (TNAU), will create region specific nanotechnology solutions for the selected locations in India.

In addition to nanoagro-inputs, CEA also specializes in the Biomass refining and converting waste to wealth using green and biomining approaches; nano-sesnsors for pathogen detection in food and field; development of nano-technologies for addressing issues such as water contamination and soil health.

CEA area is a global network program DBT-TDNBC-DEAKIN "Research Network Across continents for learning and innovation" (DTD-RNA) in the field of nanotechnology from across the globe that develops capacity for nano research and technology development among researchers, academicians, industry and regulators.
