Chemical Industries are the prime factors to convert the raw materials into desired products that we use in our day-to-day life. This has brought a tremendous change in the way the things operate. It is very important for us to understand the importance of the chemical industry which has touched all our facets of life. Chemical Industries are the principal areas of any country used to convert the raw materials into desired products that we use in our day-to-day life. This has brought an enormous change in the way the things operate. It is very important for us to understand the importance of the chemical industry which has touched all our aspect of life like agriculture, environment, food, hygiene, catalysis, construction etc. It has also significantly used in re-cycling industries to curb the usage of virgin products. The proposed course will cover all these aspects in relation to the developments at the international level.
