The Environment and Biotechnology Division (EBD) is ITDI's R&D division working on environmental concerns and specializes in applied microbiology. EBD was born out of the merging of the former Microbiology and Genetics Division and the Integrated Program on Cleaner Production Technologies of ITDI.  The division has developed considerable expertise in the management of domestic and industrial wastes generated from various sources and its impact on environmental protection has been increasingly felt in recent years.



The EBD is an internationally recognized center of excellence for Research and Development (R & D) on biotechnology and environmental protection with competent staff of high integrity providing quality service and state-of-the-art technologies for industries.
