Professor Biswajit (Bob) Ganguly
Professor Biswajit (Bob) Ganguly is a Scientist and Inventor who developed the living air filter technology from his teenage table-top living fountains and in his Post- Doctoral work in 1999 and 2000. His greatest contribution to mankind may well be the invention of an ignition enhancer for internal combustion engines which combined with his Emikat, non-noble metal based catalytic converter provides EURO6 emission control for diesel and gasoline vehicles even 15 years old. A Philosopher as well as a Humanitarian, he created the concept of “Environmental Peace” while a Post-doc at the University.
Professor Ganguly has Doctoral and Postdoctoral degrees in Applied Science and Engineering.
He is an inventor whose creative engineering talents cover a wide range of environmentally friendly projects. As an international expert in this field, he has visited and lectured widely around the world in many Universities including University of Toronto, Canada, University of Guelph, Canada, University of Tirana, Albania, University of Central Florida,USA, Columbia University,USA, Harvard University, USA, Stanford University,USA, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT),USA, United Nations Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues,NewYork,USA, University of Oxford,UK, University of Cambridge,UK, Imperial College (University of London),UK, Free University of Amsterdam,Netherland, University of Paris Sorbonne, France, Universite Libre de Bruxelles(ULB),Belgium, Heidelberg University, Germany, University of Kiel, Germany, Max-Planck Institute, Germany, University of Melbourne, Australia, Moscow State University, Russia, Kyoto University, Japan, Etc.
He was inspired by Mother Teresa in India and Sir Joseph Rotblat in London as well as supported by many other International personalities including Nobel Laureates, to promote the concept of ‘Environmental Peace’ around the World.
Professor Ganguly is the Chancellor of Noble International University (NIU) USA. He is a founder Director of International Innovation Projects (IIP) as well as Editor of the Journal of Environmental Peace’ at the University of Toronto now at the ‘Noble International University’. He is also a Foreign Member of Russian academy of Natural Sciences as well as Fellow and Member of other prestigious Professional Institutions. Professor Ganguly is also President and founder of the ‘Planet For Environmental Peace’, Canada (Special Consultative Status with ECOSOC-United Nations) and founded ‘Planet For Environmental Peace’, in India as well as ‘Planet for Environmental Peace’ in Canada with Professor Hansell to carry out and support education and research in engineering sustainable development, and peace processes throughout the world.
Professor Roger I.C. Hansell
Professor Roger I. C. Hansell has been involved in environmental projects since the 1950s He was formerly joint professor in the Institute for Environmental Studies and the Department of Zoology now Ecological and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Toronto, Canada. He was Director of Toxicology for six years.
Professor Hansell is the President of Noble International University, USA and an Emeritus Professor of University of Toronto. He is also a co- director of International Innovation Projects and co-editor of the scholarly Journal of Environmental Peace. In 2002 he became Executive Director of the Planet for Environmental Peace, and along with Professor Biswajit (Bob) Ganguly, is a co-founder of the Planet For Environmental Peace in Calcutta, India and ‘Planet for Environmental Peace’ in Canada.
Professor Hansell’s research extends from the problems of integrating ecology with economics, the theory of stability in complex systems, and practical measures to adapt cities for Climate Change. Of particular importance is the theoretical foundation of Environmental Peace based on the findings from dynamics of the tendency of systems to LeChatelier-like behavior in the neighborhoods of attractors. This stabilizing tendency exists from thermodynamics to Quantum theory and from economics to social theory and has been shown for stimulus-response in human physiology to selection in evolutionary biology.
Professor Hansell has served as visiting professor at the Free University of Brussels, Belgium; University of Leicester, and University of Sussex, U.K., and has lectured at Cambridge and Oxford Universities and other Universities around the world.
His greatest joy as a Professor aside from his collaboration with Bob Ganguly, has been to see his first PhD student Marla Sokolowski become a member of the Royal Society of Canada and a University Professor here.
