Ph.D. Project (Pursuing)

Study on the formulation, characterization, and economically viable application of polymer nanocomposite for the treatment of industrial effluents.

To formulate an economically viable adsorbent that can clean the wastewater from the industrial effluents and promote zero liquid discharge. Moreover, the formulated adsorbent would ensure its reusability and the involved regeneration process should be economical and environmentally friendly. Treatment of textile effluents will be carried out using carbon-dot-based polymer nanocomposite by adsorption and photocatalytic treatment process. Carbon dot PNC will be prepared by kitchen waste which will be biocompatible. The prepared adsorbent will be characterized by various instrumental techniques before and after treating industrial effluents. The economic viability of this PNC will also be performed by studying the regeneration of adsorbent. 

M.Tech Project

Regeneration potential of bentonite-based adsorbent coating

It involves the regeneration of a thin coated adsorbent layer which was introduced to adsorb cationic dyes from wastewater. The project includes an effective method to regenerate the clay-based adsorbent coating and characterized by various instrumental techniques. Furthermore, equilibrium data were simulated using different isotherm models and mechanism for desorption of dyes was determined using kinetic models.
