Prof. Nikita Kaumil Shah - Project Guided

Project TitleDescriptionDuration
Design and Development of Photocatalytic Water Treatment Process for the Degradation of Wastewater Produced at Industrial Plants Waste water effluents from chemical industries containing toxic chemicals which are harmful to environment and bio-system. In this study photo catalytic degradation of toxic compounds has been studied using TiO2 as a catalyst. April 2014
Design and operation of a bench scale ethanol fermentation system Surplus agro residues like rice straw are abundantly available in our country. A part of it is used as animal feed while rest is burnt on the field itself in order to prepare the field for next cropping. These residues are a good substrate for production of second generation biofuels like ethanol and butanol. in this project, Developing an Integrated Process Technology for Conversion of Crop Residues into Ethanol and Methane for use as Transport Fuels at laboratory scale and than at the bench scale. May 2012
