Dr. K. U. Mistry
Chairman
Gujarat Pollution Control Board

The "Knowledge Platform" is led by the Gujarat Pollution Control Board (GPCB) and it is supported by the Gujarat Cleaner Production Centre (GCPC), German Federal Environment Agency (Umweltbundesamt - UBA), in cooperation with Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH under Indo-German Environment Partnership (IGEP) Programme. All the supporting partners are playing a distinct role in working towards promoting the Best Available Techniques (BAT) principles and environmental friendly techniques, without entailing excessive costs.

GPCB is steering the knowledge platform to propagate the BAT principles for the larger audience in the Gujarat Industries through its various regulatory directives. This would in-turn help developing this as a model ‘Knowledge Exchange Platform’ from the regional perspective, which subsequently can be expanded to the national level.

The idea of the ‘Knowledge Exchange Platform’ on Environment Friendly Techniques is culmination of various discussions and consultations that were initiated during the last more than a year with regard to the promotion of the ‘Environmental Friendly Techniques’ in the state of Gujarat. GPCB, GIZ, UBA and GCPC have developed the Platform and made it operational.

The Knowledge Platform brings with it relevant publications of GPCB, GCPC, GIZ etc. and is hoped to become a repository of knowledge that would be beneficial for the industry in Gujarat.
