Major Activities conducted/ policies implemented by UPES:

  • Through awareness campaigns and project-based learning, students are encouraged to develop eco-friendly products such as edible cutlery, which are nutritious as well as have significant potential to replace plastic menace.
  • Tree Plantation Drive
  • Cleaning Drives
  • Integrated Wastewater Reclamation Plant: UPES engages in a pilot-scale project for an integrated wastewater reclamation plant, utilizing microalgae to treat sewage water. This innovative project produces byproducts such as bio-oil, bio-gas, and bio-manure, aligning with sustainable industrial practices and efficient resource use.
