Prof. Leena V. Bora - Project Guided

Project TitleDescriptionDuration
Utilization of Solar Energy for Wastewater Treatment Wastewater containing dyes was treated with the help of a catalyst that gets activated with the help of solar energy. The project involves synthesis and testing of the photocatalyst, study of reaction kinetics and design and fabrication of a solar photoreactor. 2015
Development of Software tool for shortcut estimation of sulfur recovery plants for ORTLOFF Technology A software tool was developed for the scale up of equipment used in the sulphur recovery plant operating on ORTLOFF Technology. The scale-up was suppossed to be from the pilot to the commercial scale. 2013
