Ikbal Nathani has received the lifetime achievement award from the Material Recycling Association of India (MRAI) at its 9th annual recycling conference, held in Delhi.
Recycling veteran Nathani was integral to founding the organisation in 2009 and is currently its president emeritus. Before accepting the award, he was joined on stage to discuss India’s recycling challenges and opportunities by MRAI president Sanjay Mehta, minister of finance Bhagwat Karad and minister of transport Shri Nitin Gadkari.
Nathani was praised for his vision and determination in front of a crowd of 1 500 delegates.
‘The MRAI has grown to be an influential organisation and the leading voice for the recycling industry in India,’ says Robin Wiener, president of the US Institute for Recycling Industries (ISRI). ‘All of us at ISRI are grateful for the seeds of friendship and partnership with MRAI that were planted by Ikbal.’
