Development of sludge free, clean, green and cost-effective technology at bench-scale for treatment of textile and dyeing industry effluent

July 18, 2017
| Ongoing project
| Waste | Environment

The main objectives of this project are: 1. To develop a bench scale photocatalytic reactor (PCR) specifically targeting such organic dyes which are in dissolved state, highly toxic, recalcitrant/non-biodegradable in nature and constitution, present in the effluent of textile & dyeing Industry.

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.
