The substrate used to make biofuel is a non-edible lignocellulosic waste material which does not conflict with food sources.
A fourth-year undergraduate student of the IIT Kharagpur has won an award at an international conference on Clean and Green Energy in Paris. He was chosen the best speaker in the Energy and Power Engineering session after he presented his research paper
Ankur Mehta, a chemical engineering student, was awarded the Best (Oral) Presentation Certificate in the seventh edition of the three-day International Conference on Clean and Green Energy (ICCGE-2018) in Paris
Ankur’s B.Tech thesis project was on producing bio-ethanol from bamboo shavings. The session in which Ankur topped had representations from eight countries and the presenters ranged from undergraduate students to professors, the statement said.
The substrate used to make bio-fuel is a non-edible lignocellulosic waste material which does not conflict with food sources.
The ICCGE is a premier forum for leading global scientists and engineers to present their new theoretical, experimental and applied research projects on clean and green energy. While undergraduates do participate in this conference, it is rare for an undergraduate student to top the presentation category while competing with senior researchers and faculty, it said.
Ankur has the option to publish his paper either in the IOP Conference Series: Earth and Environmental Science or the Journal of Clean Energy Technologies. Since the ICCGE conference is in the IITKGPs Best Conference list, Ankur?s travel and registration expenses were funded by the institute
