Biodegradable Plastic Bags Tuesday, Feb 26 2008 

Approximately over 200 million tones of non-degradable plastics are manufactured around the world. Inimical to mankind by nature, these plastics turn toxic when discarded carelessly. Plastics dumped into sea are highly toxic and endanger most of the sea species. Because of their toxic nature, lands become highly polluted and grow hazardous. They also increase global warming. The only solution to all these harms lies in using biodegradable plastics. These plastics are fully degradable and prevent the soil from getting polluted. Some of the biodegradable plastics are degradable even in sea water which is a great help for the sea animals. They reduce pollution on land and water. Some of the useful applications of these plastics are carry-out bags, packaging films, trash bags. They can also be used as extrusion coat papers which are used in coated paper cups, trays and others.

Environmental Technologies Thursday, Feb 14 2008 

With the globe becoming increasingly pollution-prone, all of us face the threat of a dark future devoid of the present beauties of the world. Globally, there is an alarming increase in environmental pollution. Considering the depletion of useful natural resources and the pollution of the environment, the predictions about the end of the Earth no more seem to be wild fantasies. In such a bleak scenario, only environment-friendly technologies can save us from environmental disasters.

Environmental Technologies (Clean or Green Technologies) are the only way to control pollution and create a hazard-free environment. The main concept behind environmental technologies is to convert environmental beneficial material into value added products and services. The purpose of implementing environmental friendly technology is to minimize environmental pollution. Some of the beneficial factors are:

    1. Minimum materials as input
    2. High energy conservation.
    3. Least pollution.
    4. Minimum waste disposal.
    5. Numerous valuable by-products are recovered.

      NTIC is an extremely environment-friendly and eco-conscious organization which has completely understood the concept of environmental technology. NTIC stands in offering an environment-beneficial clean technology to the public.
