Efforts taken by the university to make campus eco-friendly

All the campuses of the University designed eco-friendly and landscaped with extensive gardens, Plantation with recycled water. The entire university campuses are maintained as non smoking zone.
The significant initiatives implemented are:

  •     Energy Conservation
  •     Use of renewable energy through solar systems and wind mill turbine unit.
  •     Rain water Harvesting and Sewage Treatment and Recycling Plant
  •     Carbon neutrality effort by tree plantation

An e-waste management policy and its implementations are coordinated by the Computer Science Department. Between the periods of 2011-2015, two Environment awareness programme conducted and both of these programmes were funded by Ministry of Environment and Forests (MOEF) and one "Renewable energy Resources Mela" was conducted successfully for the Students and teachers from 15 schools in the districts of Chennai, Chengalpattu and Kancheepuram.

Initiatives Status
Production CFL Lamp, LED lighting have been provided to all new buildings to reduce power consumption.
Staggering of electric power loads to reduce huge demands.
Use of Renewable Energy 126 kWp solar power plants has been setup on the top of the main building.
A stand alone wind mill of the capacity 2 kW was installed as a students' project in the year 2011.
Rain Water Harvesting, Sewage Treatment and Recycling Plant Rain Water Harvesting System is installed to collect rain water from roof top of the buildings.
All the septic tank waste water collected to the Sewage Treatment Plant with the processing capacity of 6,00,000 litre per day.
Efforts for Carbon Neutrality Tree Plantation, Ban of Two and Four Wheelers within campus, Trap vehicular and fugitive dust emission.
e-waste Management A technical team has been formed to take care of e-waste management.
Biogas Plant Kitchen waste based biogas generation is in the pipeline for the campus
Others Awareness Programmes on Environment (Through NEAC)
Awareness Programme on Renewable Energy Resources (Through Renewable Energy Mela)

Energy Conservation

  •     5% LED and 35% CFL Lamp bulbs provided within the campuses. 250 sodium vapour lamps have been replaced by 90 and 55 watts CFL. In a phased manner all lights will be replaced by either for CFL or LED.
  •     Staggering of electric power loads to reduce maximum demands.
  •     All the Fans, Lights and Air conditioners are maintained in the switched off mode when not in use. The slogans insisting the necessity to switch off the Fans, Lights & ACs displayed above to all the switch boards in the campus.



Use of Renewable Energy Sources

126 kWp solar power plants has been setup on the top of the main building. To that extent EB consumption has been reduced and hence non renewable energy consumption to generate 126 kW is reduced and also CO2, SO2, SPM emissions reduction have been achieved. Moreover, many solar energy related student projects have been undertaken in Thermal and Electrical Engineering programmes.


1. 100 kWp Grid Connected Roof Top Solar Power Plant

A 100 kWp Grid connected solar power plant is under installation on the left and right wing of the main building. The output of the plant is converted to AC using five string inverters of Refusol make of a capacity 20kW respectively are the inverters have a MPPT controller and the inverters itself have the mechanism to synchronizes the generated power to the local grid. It is estimated that it will generates around 600 Units per day. The plant was installed by M/S V.D. Swami and Company Ltd., Chennai.


2. 26 kWp Grid Connected Roof Top Solar Power Plant

A 26 kWp Grid connected solar power plant is installed on the left wing of the main building. The output of the plant is converted to AC using tow string inverters of delta make of a capacity of 11kW and 15kW respectively are the inverters have a MPPT controller and the inverters itself have the mechanism to synchronizes the generated power to the local grid. It generates around 130 Units per day. It was commissioned in December 2012. The plant was installed by M/S TATA Power Solar, Bangalore.


3. 2 kW Stand alone Wind Mill

A stand alone wind mill of the capacity 2 kW was installed as a students' project in the year 2011. It has a 3 phase Brushless Permanent Magnet Synchronous Generator, and the output of the generator is used to charge the batteries through a charge controller. The output of the batteries is converted to AC using a 1.5 kVA inverter and is used in the ground floor of the girl's hostel.


4. Water Harvesting

Rain Water Harvesting System is installed to collect rain water from roof top of the buildings and allow it to flow to the nearest open well. Rain water is not taken for recharging ground water because of the unfavourable soil conditions


5. Efforts for Carbon neutrality

Tree Plantation, Ban of Two and Four Wheelers within campus, Campus waste water (100kLD) is treated in a treatment plant and treated water is used for gardening and hence equivalent carbon credit is achieved by this


6. Sewage Treatment Plant

All the septic tank waste water collected to the Sewage Treatment Plant with the processing capacity of 6,00,000 litre per day and storage capacity of 4,00,000 litre, aeration tank, settling tank, clarifier with 3,00,000 litre capacity, filtered water used for gardening, ultra filtered water used for flushing urinals.


7. Hazardous Waste management

No hazardous waste are created nor managed.


8. e-waste management

A technical team has been formed to take care of e-waste management. This team consists of one expert from IT department and two environmental specialists. The technical team visited ELCOT (Electronics Corporation of Tamil Nadu) and TNPCB (Tamil Nadu Pollution Control Board) in connection with e-waste management. The guidelines prescribed by MOEF (Ministry of Environment and Forests) were collected. The details of authorized e-waste recyclers, registered with TNPCB were also collected. As a result 400 computers along with monitors, CPU, Key boards, mouse and UPS were disposed off in an environment friendly manner.


Plans are in place to replace all CRT monitors of computers in the University by TFT monitors


9. Biogas Plant

Kitchen waste based biogas generation is in the pipeline for the campus waste as well as for the waste of nearby villages


10. Environment Awareness to students & Public

Campus cleaning day is followed periodically with about 200 students participating as part of awareness creation

Environmental Awareness Programme on Biodiversity Conservation – Vermicomposting – Awareness to Public including local farmers in Pandithamedu Village, Kanchipuram District, funded by Ministry of Environment and Forests (MOEF) Under National Environment Awareness Campaign 2013 – 2014 (Rs. 12,000/-) Programme organized on 8th February, 2014.

Environmental Awareness Programme on Combating Desertification, Land Degradation and Drought Awareness to Public in Pothys Textile shops, Chennai and to school students at KPJ Gurukulum Mat. Hr. Sec. School in Kolattur, Chennai, funded by Ministry of Environment and Forests (MOEF) Under National Environment Awareness Campaign 2014 – 2015 (Rs. 12,000/-) programme organized on 11th January 2015.
