NIT Jalandhar | GIAN Program Biotechnology and Biovalorisation of Extremophiles, Apply by 02 November 2022.


NIT Jalandhar is organizing a Global Initiative of Academic Networks (GIAN) Program Biotechnology and Biovalorisation of Extremophiles. Interested candidates can apply.

Owing to the rapid growth of the population and industrial developments, wastes are being generated at rapid rates. These wastes create tremendous health, ecological, and social impacts and global concerns for waste disposal is increasing in recent years. There is a constant lookout for an efficient, facile, eco-friendly, and economical strategy for the safe disposal of waste. Most of the conventional methods suffer from several limitations. For example, chemical methods of treatment demand sophisticated facilities and are not environmentally benign because these methods often generate wastes that are more toxic than parental wastes. Conventional chemical methods also fail to treat highly toxic waste materials such as nuclear waste and emerging pollutants.





Biotechnology and Biovalorisation of Extremophiles.

  •  Biovalorisation of agricultural wastes and industrial effluents
  •  Fate and transport of emerging pollutants in biological systems
  •  Specify engineering principles to extremophilic processes for disposal of hazardous pollutants
  •  Microbial, Enzymatic, Chemical Processes, and their Scale-up study using Extremophiles
  •  Dark and Photo fermentative molecular biohydrogen production from secondary wastes
  •  Case studies on:
  1.  The Uranium Detoxification project of the US-DoE,
  2.  Crew Wastes Disposal project of NASA,
  3.  Greenhouse gas (methane) conversion project of the National Science Foundation (NSF),
  4.  Food Wastes to Biofuels project of the US-DoD
  •  Techno-economical and life cycle assessments for an integrated process.
