Research

The future production of renewable high-value chemicals and fuels will increasingly depend on biomass due to the requirement to shift society’s dependence from petroleum-based to renewable resources. This is essential for the development of sustainable technologies and the effective management of greenhouse emissions. Recently, there has been a significant increase in cellulosic wastes from the agriculture and food industries. There are pre-harvest and post-harvest agricultural losses and wastes from the food processing industry. They can be used to exploit the synthesis of biofuels and advance eco-friendly biomaterials with a host of different potential applications in many different industries.

This in turn will help to eliminate problems related to the use of inorganic synthetic based materials which are non-renewable, non-biodegradable and, during manufacture, consume large amounts of energy and pose potential health risks.

 

Research Interests

  • Microwave treatment of cellulosic wastes of agriculture and food industries
  • Green Catalysis for the production of clean fuels, biochemical and advance materials
  • Electrospinning process for biomass exploitation for the synthesis of advance biomaterials.
