Dr. Vikas Amte

Vasundhara Sanman

An innovative scientist, creative researcher, environmental entrepreneur, liberated management executive, financier, sincere social worker, and physician by education, Dr Vikas Amte dons many hats. An environmentalist and engineer at heart, he has dug several lakes that have solved the water scarcity problem in Anandwan and Somnath. While discarded truck tyres are used to build dam spillways, bricks made out of shredded plastic and concrete are used in the construction of buildings and roads, and artistic gift items and greeting cards are created out of other waste material.
