Utilization of MSW
In addition to these cold plasma-based research plans is to continue the research efforts onto new areas such as MSW gasification. Building on my experience with biomass gasification, I plan to work on the utilization of MSW to produce value-added products – energy, bio-hydrogen, liquid fuels and compost using thermochemical and biological conversion processes. The focus would be on the fundamental work addressing challenges of solid, liquid and gaseous emissions, and demonstration. This research is expected to solve the growing MSW handling issues of the country.
