They are ready to go to the industries for mass production. Instead of Chemicals, Nanobiotechnology uses Microorganisms are used to convert Microns size material to nano size.

TERI is already into mass production of MyCorrhiza. TERI's Centre for Mycorrhizal Research (CMR) has successfully translated the nutrient-tapping potential of this system and developed a technology that eventually produces mycorrhizae-based biofertiliser. Research for multiple products like fertilizers, fungicides, natural colors and their efficiency trials etc are always been done at TERI. They have made a reactor, which makes nano salts for producing microorganisms. TERI is effectively translating this lab based research into practical applications and they are ready with prototypes, very well validated over the last two three years and now are ready with products and the processing is on the pipeline said Mr Alok. In Conclusion, he reiterated the future directions of TERI into  application and technology development mode where they would will try to reduce the  foot print on the environments.
