University Extension Lectures
The Department of Industrial Chemistry has organized a University Extension Lecture Series. The renowned scientist Datu Prof. Ir. Dr. Mohd. Omar, retired Professor University Sains Malaysia and Director, PICORP delivered following two lectures on 21st and 23rd April:
1) Environmental effects of Mining Industry and its Mitigations
2) Designs of groundwater treatment for drinking in remote areas
The program was held in the Conference Hall, Department of Physics, AMU. In his first lecture, Prof. Omar highlighted the effects of the Mining Industry on the environment and it's mitigation. He emphasized the careful mining of natural resources involving all stake holders with proper care so as to prevent pollution of soil, ground water, flora fauna and other habitat to maintain sustainability and diversity including the social fabric of the region. He also presented the case study of some Manganese mining sites in Malaysia.
In his second lecture, Prof. Omar discussed the drinking water treatment system in remote locations wherein he presented the design of few large treatment plants for the local population in hilly areas of Malaysia. The process initiated with the sampling of drinking water and studying physicochemical parameters to identify the common pollutants in order to devise a strategy for treatment.
In both the lectures he presented the models of good economic returns from projects of public welfare. He also emphasized that the University Intellectuals especially faculty members of Science and Engineering disciplines could join hands and extend their scientific skills for community services to solve National Problems so that all stake holders may be benefited.
The program was attended by faculty members from Departments of Industrial Chemistry, Chemical Engg, Civil Engg, Remote Sensing and Geology along with research scholars and post graduate students.
Prof. Anees Ahmad Chairperson, Department of Industrial Chemistry welcomed the speaker while Dr. Shahab AA Nami proposed the vote of thanks. Dr. Mohammad Zain Khan, conducted the two days program.
