While delivering the Keynote address, Dr.Pushpito Ghosh, Director, Central Salt & Marine Chemicals Research Institute, Bhavnagar traced various facets of the Colorants industry from the very discovery of indigo, to the latest innovations in the usage of solar energy cells and electronics. ince many Colorants units are located in Gujarat under SME sector, who cannot afford large investments in R&D individually, he advocated the setting up of a dedicated institute for Colorants research and development on a co-operative model, which would go a long way in its growth in the days to come.

"This is the first time that salt has been produced from a vegetable source, and we have filed an international patent," says Pushpito Ghosh, director of India's Central Salt and Marine Chemicals Research Institute (CSMCRI), where the research was conducted.
Most plants are salt intolerant, but some can grow under high saline conditions.CSMCRI scientists investigated one such species, Salicornia brachiata, which accumulates salt within its tissue, and developed a process for extracting salt from the plant.Dr Ghosh says that his group is now trying to assess the commercial potential of 'vegetable salt' as a health product.The researchers also suggest that their discovery could help in the commercial development of wasteland with salty soils."The finding that the plant can also be a source of nutritive salt has made large-scale saline soil cultivation an attractive proposition from the point of eco-restoration and making money from wasteland," says Dr Ghosh.

The challenge is manufacturing high-quality biodiesel at a reasonable cost, according to Pushpito K. Ghosh, director of CSMCRI.

"Although the demonstration aimed at proving road worthiness of micro-algal biodiesel, it remains to be seen whether such mat-forming marine micro algae can be cultivated inland or induced to grow rapidly and on large scale in the sea itself," said CSMCRI Director Dr Pushpito Ghosh. "A number of other marine micro-algae strains are being investigated under the project especially those having high lipid productivity," he said.
"The production of bio-fuels must not affect food security and the micro-algal project gains significance on this count," Ghosh said.
"A model farm will be set ..., 11 Dec 2012 [cached]
"A model farm will be set up in cooperation with the Gujarat government on 10-20 acres of land having a scientific design and layout suitable for a solar salt works," Dr Pushpito Ghosh, Director, CSMCRI told the press. The farm model would demonstrate how over 99% purity salt can be obtained with virtually no environmental hazard, and would help facilitate salt cluster development, Ghosh said.
It would also demonstrate effective brine management practices and how to produce high purity export grade salt both from the sea and underground water without compromising on yield, Dr V P Mohandas, Sr Principal Scientist CSMCRI, said. The technological highlight of this farm shall be perfecting brine chemistry to obtain high purity salt through solar evaporation, he continued. Producing 15 million tonnes of salt annually, Gujarat accounts for 73% of total India's salt production.
