The Central Mechanical Engineering Research Institute (CMERI) exhibited a number of technologies associated to ginger-turmeric processing and municipal solid waste management in a conclave in Meghalaya, the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) mentioned on Monday.

The technologies have been exhibited within the ‘Conclave and Techno-Fair on Transforming Meghalaya State by Science and Technology Interventions’ organised by the North East Centre for Technology Application and Reach (NECTAR), an autonomous physique of the Department of Science and Technology (DST), on April 9-10.

”The technologies exhibited by CSIR-CMERI on the conclave are the ginger-turmeric processing technologies, municipal solid waste management, photo voltaic tree and artifacts, full water purification technologies (arsenic-iron-fluoride) and options, effluent remedy plant, hybrid mini-grid amongst others,” the CSIR mentioned.

CMERI is a constituent laboratory of CSIR. Meghalaya Chief Secretary M S Rao visited the CSIR-CMERI exhibit and expressed a whole lot of curiosity within the technologies, particularly the ginger-turmeric processing unit, solar-based hybrid mini-grid and municipal waste management.
