The Department of Chemistry, Punjab Engineering College (Deemed to be University), Chandigarh, organized an expert talk on 22 March 2023 under Industry Academia Expert Lecture Week. Dr. Jaspreet Dhau, Vice President of Research and Development at Molekule Inc., USA, delivered a lecture on "Sustainable Technologies: Air Purification and Fire Fighting Foams". The expert lecture was organised to promote industry-academia interaction and inform the students about the applications of chemistry in developing sustainable technologies.

The event started with a floral welcome of the chief guest by Prof Harminder Kaur, Head of the department.

Dr. Jaspreet Dhau apprised the students about the significance of sustainable development and sustainable technologies in the current time. He shared his insights on the latest trends and advancements in the field by sharing details of his research on the firefighting foam and preclinical testing of Air Purification Technologies Against Type II Inflammation and Asthma. The session was followed by a question-answer session.

The expert lecture was attended by BTech 1st year students, faculty members, and research scholars in the PEC auditorium. The event was a great success, with participants from various engineering disciplines, engaging in lively discussions and gaining valuable knowledge from Dr. Dhau's expertise.

The Convenor (Prof Harminder Kaur) and coordinators (Dr Navneet Kaur and Dr. Balwinder Kaur) expressed their gratitude to Dr. Jaspreet Dhau for sharing his valuable insights and knowledge with the participants.
