The man who paves India's roads with old plastic
Indian chemistry professor shows that repurposed plastic can be good for the environmentAt 73, Dr Rajagopalan Vasudevan is roughly as old as the mass production of plastic. But that is not the reason why the chemistry professor has a soft spot for the much-maligned material.“Plastic isn’t the problem,” the venerable scientist says in his office in the southern Indian city of Madurai. “We are. Plastic wouldn’t clog our oceans or our landfills if we didn’t throw it there in the first place. And there is so much we can do with it instead.” Related: 'We no longer die in childbirth': how Indian villages saved their mothers Continue reading... [...]

Skoda hires outsider from Tata Motors as head of engineering for ‘India 2.0’ project
Following the official announcement of the ‘India 2.0’ project earlier this month, Skoda is all set to take charge of the VW Group’s India operations. A key part of the ambitious India 2.0 project will be establishing an engineering centre in India to locally develop products for both Skoda and VW brands. Skoda has roped in Gordon Calder, formerly from Tata Motors to head Skoda’s Engineering Centre in Pune. Calder’s appointment as vice-president and head of engineering is significant as Skoda has appointed an outsider for this key role and not someone from within the VW Group. “We needed someone who has good experience dealing with suppliers and understands the manufacturing ecosystem in India.” said a source. Calder comes with significant India experience having worked in Tata Motors since 2012. Calder led the body engineering team of Tata Motors’ passenger car division and was responsible for developing the Bolt, Zest, Tiago, Tigor and Nexon. He moved to a strategy role in 2016 and was briefly responsible for product planning of the company’s SUV portfolio, until he left the company a few months ago. Prior to Tata Motors, Calder has had stints all over the world with EDAG, Ford and Nissan, primarily as a body engineer. Skoda will be counting on Calder’s expertise to tailor the VW Group’s MQB-A0-IN platform to meet local requirements and strict costs targets, which is essential for the success of the India 2.0 project. The Czech car maker has committed an investment of one billion Euros (Rs 7,900 crores) for India 2.0, which will be used towards increase manufacturing capacity, localising  powertrains and developing an all-new product range. The first products from Skoda’s rebooted operations are expected in 2020.  Calder clearly has a lot on his plate.       [...]
