Seminar on Ecological & Toxicological aspects of Colorants

Jan '12
The Ecological and Toxicological Association of Dyes and Organic Pigments Manufacturers (ETAD) based in Basel, Switzerland along with Indian Operating Committee (IOC) with its office in Vadodara, Gujarat is organizing a seminar titled “Ecological and Toxicological Aspects of Colorants – Current Implications, India and Global” on 24th January 2012 at The Mayfair Banquets, Worli, Mumbai from 1000 hrs to 1700 hrs.

This is the second such seminar ETAD is organizing, encouraged by the response from the first one in 2009. This seminar coincides with the first Board Meeting of ETAD that will be held in Mumbai.

The seminar will principally address the topics like REACh, Sunstainability, Waste Management , Responsible Care, GHS, Nanopigments etc. The Keynote address on “The Indian Specialty Chemical Industry – Focus on Colourants” will be delivered by Mr. Ravi Kapoor, President ETAD. He was elected as President ETAD in May 2011 and is the first Asian to hold this post in a growing awareness of the importance of India and Asia in the field of colourants.

Presentations will also be made by international and national experts from industry and Government like Dr. Clemens Grund from Dystar, Dr. Dileep Wakanker from Clariant, Dr. (Mrs.) Vijay Malik from BIS, Dr. Bernd Hochstein from BASF, Dr. Peter Scheibli from Huntsman (Switzerland), Mr. Reynold D'Souza from Sakata Inx, Mr. K. P. Nyati, CEO - SMI and Dr. M. U. Rahman from Atul Limited. The experts will address delegates from Paint, Textile, Ink, Plastics and Dyes industry.

The Indian Dyes and Pigments industry which is at present a $3.5 bn industry has the potential to become a $10-15 bn industry by 2020. India itself is a huge consumer and will continue to grow at an aggressive rate.

The per capita consumption of dyestuff and pigments is 50 gms versus a global average of 300 gms and the industry is slated to grow at about 15% per annum. The path to this growth is challenging with regulatory, product safety and environmental issues expected to play a major role. It is these issues that ETAD seeks to address and bring to the forefront of discussion and debate such that the industry and other stake holders better understand these issues and plays a key role to help regulators regulate effectively and realistically with the national and global perspective in mind.

ETAD focuses on sector specific issues and initiates activities based on scientific data and which are guided by ethical values. ETAD tries to establish links between regulators, industry, stake holders etc.

In India ETAD was successfully introduced to the Central Government and State Government bodies, and the contact will be further reinforced by additional interaction with the government, particularly stressing the regulatory aspect and the positive role ETAD could play in harmonizing the international and national regulatory norms.

Additionally ETAD will strive to address environmental concerns on waste management by highlighting environmental technologies by way of seminars and Private-Public co-operation. A Round-Table Conference was organized on “Responsible Waste Management For Responsible Growth” in December 2010 at Vadodara, Gujarat, which was supported by Government of Gujarat, Department of Chemical & Petrochemicals –Govt. of India, Indian Chemical Council, Federation of Gujarat Industries and Industrial Extension Bureau - Govt. of Gujarat.
