Professor (Dr.) Ganapati D. Yadav, Institute of Chemical Technology Mumbai, India has been named among Asia’s top 100 most outstanding researchers.

Every year since 2016, Asian Scientist Magazine compiles a list of Asia’s most outstanding researchers. Now into its eighth edition, the Asian Scientist 100 list celebrates the success of the region’s best and brightest, highlighting their achievements across a range of scientific disciplines.

To be acknowledged on this list, the honouree must have received a national or international prize in the preceding year for his or her research. Alternatively, he or she must have made a significant scientific discovery or provided leadership in academia or industry.

Speaking on the development, Prof. (Dr.) Yadav said: “I am really happy to be counted among the top 100 scientists in Asia. This is a great honor to my alma mater and Karmabhumi Institute of Chemical Technology (iCT) Mumbai where I spent my entire life from my student days till I retired as the Vice-Chancellor. It is a reflection of the excellent work done by my 111 PhD, 147 Masters and 48 post doctoral researchers. I was also recognized as the only second Indian to be elected to the US National Academy of Inventors. I must thank all my students, colleagues and family for supporting me. I also thank the many industries I am associated with and have funded my research. This is the honor of India.  Particularly my research and technology development of green hydrogen (less than a dollar per kilo), carbon dioxide valroziation, biomass conversion to chemicals, fuels and materials and waste plastic recyciling is recognised.”

Professor Ganapati D. Yadav is one of the topmost, highly prolific, and accomplished engineering-scientists in India. He is the National Science Chair of Govt. of India, which is a very prestigious national honor and is Emeritus Professor of Eminence and is the former Vice Chancellor of the Institute of Chemical Technology, Mumbai.
