RONO HILLS (DOIMUKH): In the quest for innovative projects for all round development of the institute, the Rajiv Gandhi University (RGU) has approved the project for creation of Paper Recycling Unit at the campus on Tuesday. The university has been long exploring the options for management of waste. Being an educational institute, the majority of waste is paper and the most viable mode of managing the waste is a Paper Recycling Unit. Vice Chancellor of the university Prof. Saket Kushwaha visited the site identified for setting up of the unit. He suggested that the project is to be completed under the banner of the ‘Women Technology Park’ which was established in 2005 with a grant by the Ministry of Science & Technology, Government of India in 2005.
The park was established as a knowledge sharing hub for the community. The idea behind creating the recycling unit under the banner is to offer courses on handmade-paper making through the Institute of Distance Education and to create a market for eco friendly stationary.
The site finalization team consisted of the Director (IDE) Ashan Riddi, President, RGUTA Prof. Jumyir Basar, President, RGUEA Sonam Solung, PO, NSS Gomar Basar and Asst. Professor IDE Moyir Riba.
