Synopsis:  This work mainly deals with the fabrication and characterization of catalytic membrane reactor and its application to recover/remove different value-aided products from petroleum industries. The main objectives of this study are:
(a) Selection of suitable materials for support membrane fabrication.
(b) Parametric optimization (sintering temperature, applied pressure) of membrane preparation methods using trial and error approach in experimentation.
(c) Evaluation of the best membrane module (tubular, hollow fibre, flat) and mode of application (dead-end, cross-flow etc.)
(d) Characterization of the fabricated membrane.
(e) Selection of suitable catalysts for different purposes.
(f) Evaluation of optimal operating conditions (preparation technique, calcination temperature) that enables to offer higher yield.
(g) Choosing of suitable catalysts coating techniques (PVD, CVD, Vacuum coating etc.) on the surface of the membrane in terms of cost.
(h) Evaluation of the best membrane reactor configurations and mode of applications (extractor, distributor and contactor).
(i) Modelling and simulation for CMRs design purpose.
(j) Cost and economic analysis.

Masters Training

Synopsis: In this study, an attempt has been made to obtain an empirical model of the microfiltration cell recycle bioreactor for continuous production of Lactic acid by FORTRAN. Cell concentration, substrate concentration, product concentration and permeate flux as a function of time was evaluated considering resistance-in-series model in which the membrane resistance and cake resistance are taken into account.

Bachelors Training

Synopsis:  The project mainly dealing with the modeling of a rotating disc ultrafiltration membrane by using buckinghum-pi theorem to get a correlation between permeates flux and rejection.
