Font Size :



The National Environmental Engineering Research Institute (NEERI), Nagpur was established in 1958 as Central Public Health Engineering Research Institute (CPHERI), when environmental concerns were limited to human health with a focus on water supply/sewage disposal/ communicable diseases and to some extent on industrial pollution and occupational diseases. Shrimati Indira Gandhi, the then Prime Minister of India, rechristened the Institute as National Environmental Engineering Research Institute (NEERI) in the year 1974.

National Environmental Engineering Research Institute (NEERI), Nagpur is devoted to research and innovations in environmental science and engineering besides solving a range of problems posed by industry, government and public. It is a constituent of Council of Scientific & Industrial Research (CSIR), New Delhi and has a nation-wide presence with its five zonal laboratories at Chennai, Delhi, Hyderabad, Kolkata and Mumbai.NEERI is served by competent and experienced team of about 125 scientists in various core disciplines of relevance to environmental science and engineering, viz. environmental engineering, chemical engineering, environmental chemistry, environmental biology and fourteen other science and engineering disciplines. Professionally competent and highly skilled and experienced technical officers and technicians support the scientific personnel.

The Institute has necessary infrastructure and around 500 scientific and technical staff to monitor, analyze and characterize various elements and substances in the environmental samples on a national/regional scale with state of art equipments and methodologies.

Based on the directives from Honble Supreme Court of India, besides Honble High Courts of various States, NEERI has submitted several reports from time to time for resolving various critical environmental disputes/issues concerning industry, ecology and environment.

The Institute has considerable capabilities and experience in the domain of environmental management and at present, the major R&D thrust areas pursued by the Institute include:
R&D Thrust Areas :
  • Environmental Monitoring
