Design of nanoporous materials for gas separation (TA or FA only)

Natural gas meets around 20-25% of world energy demands. Overall the world has around 200 trillion cubic meters of natural gas reserve and new reservoirs are being found. Methane gas constitutes around 80-90% of natural gas and for economical utilization of methane as fuel, efficient separation technology is required. The aim of this project is to design new nanoporous materials for methane separation and storage from natural gas.

Materials for water purification and desalination (TA or FA only)

Although earth is covered with 70% of water, only 2% of it is available as fresh drinkable water. Access to this fresh water is scarce in many parts of the country. The groundwater contamination due to industrial pollution and geological minerals leads to many health issues, especially in childrens and women. Conversion of sea-water to fresh water is an expensive and energy-intensive process. The aim of this project is to find organic and inorganic porous materials for water purification.

Economic and life cycle assessment of sugar industry waste valorization

India is the second largest sugar producer globally, and hence sugarcane crushing for sugar production is a major industry. However, sugar industry also generates a lot of waste, including bagasse, spent wash, press mud, and bagasse pith. These wastes are not effeciently handled currently, leading to environmental and human health hazards as well as missed economic value.   read more »

Development of Industrial Risk Acceptability Criteria for Emergent Economies

Development of industrial risk acceptability criteria is a complex task involving considerations of trade-offs between costs and benefits. The trade off is usually between the level of risk one accepts and the cost one is willing to bear in order to mitigate it. Beyond engineering principles of risk analysis, such an effort invariably invloves socio-economic, legal and political considerations. The present topic aims to examine the current state and gaps in the Indian industrial practice of arriving at acceptable risk in comparison to that adopted in various other countries.  read more »

Model-Control Dynamic pH meter
Student In charge-Renu Kulkarni
-A pH meter is an electronic instrument used to measure the pH (acidity or alkalinity) of a liquid (though special probes are sometimes used to measure the pH of semi-solid substances). A typical pH meter consists of a special measuring probe (a glass electrode) connected to an electronic meter that measures and displays the pH reading.  read more »
