Waste Valorization Lab


Waste valorization laboratories are pivotal in mitigating environmental pollution and resource depletion concerns by devising sustainable waste management strategies. These facilities specialize in converting various waste streams, including construction and demolition waste, agro waste, foundry waste, and industrial waste, into valuable products or resources. Specifically focused on civil engineering applications, these labs seek to develop innovative approaches for effectively managing such waste materials.

The establishment of a Waste Valorization Lab at PSG Institute of Technology and Applied Research is a strategic response to the environmental challenges associated with the discharge of construction, industrial, and agro waste. By leveraging cutting-edge research, expertise, and innovation, this lab is instrumental in fostering resource efficiency and advancing sustainable building practices. Its endeavors significantly contribute to transitioning towards a more circular and environmentally responsible construction industry.


Academic research facilities serve a variety of purposes and play a crucial role in advancing knowledge and innovation across different fields. Research facilities felicitate fundamental research, applied research, experimental and testing, data collection and analysis, collaborative research and education, technology development etc. The following are the research facilities available at Waste Valorization laboratory.
