Each of the 37 CSIR (Council of Scientific & Industrial Research) Labs spread across the country is dedicated to a different exclusive area of work and the "one week, one lab" campaign will offer an opportunity to each one of them to showcase the work being done by it so that others can avail of it and stakeholders learn about it
Secretary, DSIR & Director General, CSIR, Dr N Kalaiselvi informed that the "One Week One Lab" campaign of CSIR is a way to establish the right connect and to showcase not only the technological breakthroughs & innovations in CSIR laboratories, but also Future Technologies on which CSIR labs are working.
We welcome all to CSIR-National Chemical Laboratory for a week-long celebration of our recent achievements as part of CSIR’s “One Week One Lab (OWOL)” initiative. We plan to showcase our contributions in creating new knowledge and translating the science through innovation into best in class process and product technologies for the benefit of society
About The Program
Hon’ble Minister (S&T) Dr. Jitendra Singh emphasized that each of 37 CSIR laboratories is unique and specializes in as diverse areas as the genome to geology, food to fuel, minerals to materials, and so on.
To showcase and propagate such diversity across society Hon’ble Minister announced the idea of “One Week, One Lab” to be a nationwide theme- based campaign to showcase the technological breakthroughs and innovations in the CSIR labs.

Clean energy is energy in full development to fulfill our current desire to conserve the environment and deal with the non-renewable fuel crisis.
The objective is CO2 and CO fixation into various valuable chemicals and using catalysis for energy.
It is a key element for sustainability since recycling, reusing, and remanufacturing contribute to the long-term use of resources and helps to reduce waste and its negative effects.
Sustainable Chemical Industry
A ‘green’ or ‘sustainable’ plan for the R&D that serves the chemical industry is crucial to overcome different barriers.
The conversion of waste/ biomass to valuable materials and energy (i.e., valorization) is crucial due to the depletion of natural resources.
Biotherapeutic products and methodologies are widely used and this research is among the fastest growing segments in the industry.
Adopting advanced and improved technologies significantly contribute to increasing productivity and agricultural growth and it will help farmers enhance their income.
