Dr Rajat Kumar Panigrahy, ITI principal, said:  “Our Waste to Wealth concept brilliantly merges skill development with responsible waste management practices.” 

He said, ITI takes a proactive stance in addressing the growing demand for a “green workforce” by equipping trainees with skills to breathe new life into waste materials generated during their training. This innovative approach empowers trainees to become not just skilled technicians, but also responsible stewards of the environment.
