Development of polyolefin composites loaded with co-microencapsulated intumescent fire retardant system along with nanosized wear resistant additives

July 17, 2017
| Ongoing project

In this study a high temperature charring agent i.e. propane terephthalamide will be synthesized. This will be co-micro encapsulated with APP in melamine-formaldehyde resin. The microcapsules thus developed will be blended along with nanosized silicon nitride in LLDPE, PP, LDPE and HDPE. The microcapsules will enhance the fire retardancy.

Traffic and air quality in India: Technologies and attitudes (TAQIITA) (Indo-Finland collaborative project)

June 2, 2017
| Ongoing project
| Air | Environment

Fine particulate matter is the pollutant of most concern in developing countries today on the basis of exposure, toxicity, and ambient concentrations. Two major contributors in transport to fine particulate air pollution are diesel vehicles and two-stroke engine gasoline vehicles. Due to strong motorization, India has become one of the biggest emitters of atmospheric pollutants.
