Nandan opens facility at Icrisat ASP

Our Bureau

Hyderabad, June 7

Nandan Biomatrix Ltd has opened a research and development, process and formulation and biodiesel facility at the Agri-Science Park (ASP) of ICRISAT.

Dr William Dar, Director-General of ICRISAT, said Nandan Biomatrix' decision would strengthen public-private partnership for improving agricultural productivity in the semi-arid tropics. The ASP offered infrastructure and facilitated commercialisation of technology that would ultimately help farmers.

The park achieved this through public-private partnerships. "The partnership will give an opportunity to take a scientific look at bio fuel cultivation in the drylands," said Dr Dar, who inaugurated the facility here. The Nandan Biomatrix facility would use multiple feedstock, such as jatropha and pongamia.
