About Us

This Foundation was established to promote environmental and climate technology and its applications in multiple fields. Realizing this, we started FECT in 2002, and officially registered it as a non-profit company in 31st December 2003 (Registration No: N(A)1148 & GA 56 (from 2008) under a service oriented non-profit charter with the Registrar of Companies, Samagam Medura, No.400, D.R.Wijewardena Mawatha, Colombo 10, Sri Lanka. FECT builds on the work of the officers in Sri Lanka and internationally. Our work is oriented towards developing useable scientific and technological information that can be applied by users in diverse sectors. We work actively with other Sri Lankan partners in Government institutions, Research Institutes, and Universities. Our charter limits us from turning private profit but requires us to develop the science and technology field. We seek partners in expanding our work.
