NAGPUR’S very own son, Archis Ramesh Ambulkar has created history after the prestigious Encyclopaedia Britannica featured his contribution on ‘Wastewater Treatment’. The legendary publication is an extensive database referred by readers worldwide. It includes works of elite and international experts in various fields including Nobel laureates, Pulitzer prize winners and past-Presidents of the United States. Ambulkar has contributed on a feature on wastewater treatment which is also called sewage treatment. The latest volume of Britannica includes his work on the topic and author biography.

Hailing from Nagpur, Ambulkar is an environmental engineer in Ohio, USA. The 41-year-old is an alumni of Dharampeth Science College and CP & Berar School. He did his B Tech (Chemical) in 1999 from Laxminarayan Institute of Technology. In 2003, he went to the US to pursue Masters degree in Environmental Engineering from Bucknell University, Pennsylvania. The Britannic entry is another feather in Ambulkar’s decorated professional career. Some of his outstanding achievements include contribution towards Oxford University’s Research Encyclopaedia, expert reviewer for Inter-Governmental Panel for Climate Change (IPCC) reports, participation with the United Nations programmes like World Ocean Assessment and Global Soil Partnership.
