Some Research Initiatives

Zero waste campus: The department of microbiology has been pursuing research on biodegradation of waste. This research, by students of Ms. Santhini Nair, has led to collaboration with StreeMuktiSanghathana in setting up a compost pit in the campus for degradation of college and canteen waste thereby contributing towards Solid Waste Management.

  • Mr. Malay Shah (Microbiology) has worked on degradation of poultry feathers (Keratin) to compost helping in Solid Waste Management.
  • Green Chemistry: Chemistry department is following the principles of green chemistry. PhD and MSc (research) students are trained to recycle the waste solvents by fractional distillation, which will reduce the pollution of drain effluent as well as compensates the economy of the laboratory.
  • In Chemistry department experiments are arranged by using microscale techniques to minimize the quantity of chemicals thus decreasing the cost and reducing the concentration of chemicals in drain effluent thus saving environment.
  • Mr. Santosh B. (Physics) has contributed in development of clinostat that is used in study of effect of gravitational force.
  • Dr. Anita Kanwar has developed low cost indigineous Multiwavelength Refractometer to analyze liquid crystals.
