Visaka Industries Limited to build ‘Climate Lab’ at Anant University, using their range of sustainable building materials
Ahmedabad: Visaka Industries Limited, a leading name in indigenous sustainable construction materials, has collaborated with Anant University, to help build a first-of-its-kind Climate Lab for their Ahmedabad campus. The lab will be fabricated using Visaka’s Vnext Fibre Cement Boards, which are an eco-friendly alternative to climate-damaging plywood & gypsum and the entire lab will be powered using Visaka’s proprietary and patented ATUM Solar – World’s 1st Integrated Solar Roof.
Commenting on the launch of this collaboration programme, Vamsi Gaddam, Joint Managing Director, Visaka Industries – “There is no denying the impact of climate change. It affects us every day and in every aspect of our lives. We applaud Anant National University for taking the initiative to build this Climate Lab and are extremely proud to have been involved in its construction with our eco-friendly boards and integrated solar roof. We have been in the sustainable building materials industry for four decades and have no doubt that THIS is the need of the hour – to educate our students, and our future, and pass the baton of responsibility to them. Congratulations, Anant U. “Here’s to a more sustainable tomorrow.”
Furthering the thought, Dr Anunaya Chaubey – Provost, AnantU, said, “As the world is realising the severity and impact of climate change, we have to intensify efforts to study, research and build sustainable solutions. Anant Climate Lab is our effort in that direction. Here the students will get a chance to experiment, test and build on their ideas. Hand-on experience is crucial for such new and evolving sectors as climate sciences and technology”.
