College of Engineering, MSc Process Engineering student bagged Second prize in Virtual International Conference

An International Conference on “New Strategies in Water Treatment and Desalination” was organized by Department of Chemical Engineering, SRM Institute of Science and Technology, India during 21-23rd March 2021 with association of Indian Desalination Association and National Institute of Ocean Technology.

Theme of the Conference: Water is a valuable but scarce resource as it gets easily contaminated, with its multiple roles, as carrier, constituent of matter and solvent. Besides the skewed distribution of natural resources, the contamination of the fresh water sources also contributes to the scarcity, making it imperative to recover water from the spent streams. Zero liquid discharge (ZLD) targets the recovery of water leaving behind the other contaminants leading to environmental burden in a different phase and any contamination of water sources ends up in tremendously increasing the unit cost of water harnessed for different applications as the remediation process is elaborate. The real cost of water must be worked out by taking the aforementioned considerations. Thus, any policy on reuse/recycle of limited water resources should accord due cognizance to the aspects of water quality to ensure their long-term sustainability.

One of our MSc students, Mr.Harib Mansoor Nasser Al-Sharji from Process Engineering program (USC), College of Engineering presented the research finding of his Masters project entitled “INVESTIGATION ON ZINC OXIDE-FENTON AS SOLAR PHOTOCATALYST BY RESPONSE SURFACE METHODOLOGY TO TREAT THE OILFIELD PRODUCED WATER” and bagged the Second Prize In Oral Presentation Category. The research idea focused on petroleum Industries are producing large volumes of waste with wastewater accounting for more than 80% of liquid waste and as high as 95% in ageing oilfields. The study focused on an ability of solar photocatalysis of ZnO/Fenton in pre-treatment of oilfield produced water. A central composite design (CCD) was used for the experiment to optimize experimental parameters and assess the relationships between significant independent variables on ZnO dosage , H2O2 , Fe+2 dosage, pH and reaction time. The project was guided by Dr.Lakkimsetty Nageswara Rao and Mr.MJ Varghese. Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering take this opportunity to congratulate the winner and the supervisor(s).
