Plastic Bottle Recycling Machine
On the occasion of World Environment Day (5th June, 2019), Pillai College of Engineering; in collaboration with Reliance India Ltd. has installed a Biocrux Plastic Bottle Recycling Machine (PBRM) at Dr. K. M. Vasudevan Pillai Campus, New Panvel. Biocrux India is a pioneer in providing sustainable 360 degree solution for PET waste. Installation of PBRM is indeed a small step towards environment conservation, taken at Dr. K. M. Vasudevan Pillai Campus, New Panvel and will definitely turn out to be a large leap towards developing a cleaner and greener, Smart New Panvel, in the near future.
