The CAAQMS will ensure that India’s most populous state, Uttar Pradesh, will have access to the most advanced air quality monitoring technology available and that Amity University will act as the epicentre for research that sets thresholds and targets for air pollutants.
ECOTECH’s close working relationship with Amity University and UPPCB is championed by Manoj Kumar, International Business Development Manager for ECOTECH in India and the Middle East. Manoj has been instrumental in forging the collaborative efforts of ECOTECH and Amity University. Relationships like this and ECOTECH’s direct presence in the Indian market underpin and demonstrates its long-term commitment to the region and its institutions.
