Track 6 : Bioreactors and Fermentation 

The bioreactors are mechanical vessels in which organisms are cultivated in a controlled manner and/or materials are converted or transformed via specific reactions. Traditional chemical reactor models and designs that may be used for bioreaction as well include: continuous stirred-tank reactors, continuous flow stirred-tank reactors, and plug-flow reactors and fluidized-bed reactors. The term “bioreactor” is often used with fermenter.  However, a fermenter is a system that provides an anaerobic process for producing alcohol from sugar. Bioreactor systems must be designed to provide a higher degree of control over process upsets and contaminations, since the organisms are more sensitive and less stable than chemicals. The goal of an effective bioreactor is to control, contain and positively influence the biological reaction. The important parameters in bioreactor design are controlled temperature, optimum pH , sufficient substrate, such as sugars, proteins and fats , water availability , salts for nutrition , vitamins , oxygen (for aerobic processes) , gas evolution and  product and byproduct removal.

Track 7: Chemical Polymer Technology

Polymerization is the process of combination of many small biochemical molecules known as monomers into a covalently bonded chain. During the polymerization process, few chemical groups may be lost from each monomer. Monomers are Terephthalic acid, ethylene glycol Laboratory synthetic method are step-growth polymerization and chain-growth polymerization. The essential variation between the two is that in chain growth polymerization, monomers are added to the chain one at a time only, such as in polyethylene, But in step-growth polymerization chains of monomers may combine with one another directly.

Track 9: Bioseparation

Bioseparation is the process of purifying biological products on a large-scale, employing fundamental aspects of engineering and scientific principles. The end goal of bioseparation is to refine molecules, cells and parts of cells into purified fractions. Biological products can be separated and purified depending upon the characteristics such as density, diffusivity, electrostatic charge, polarity, shape, size, solubility and volatility. Bioseperation techniques can be categorised into two major groups - High Throughput Low Resolution and High resolution   Low Throughput techniques.

Track 10: Bioprocesses for Water and Wastewater Treatment

Biochemical technology is crucial in the field of water and waste water treatment. In many instances the condition of water resource require normally three stages of primary purifications namely, sedimentation, filtration and  disinfection. However, in recycling of used water in industries or for their disposal in natural water ways rigorous treatment methods are needed to make waste water/liquid effluent safe for recycling, for aquatic life and prevention of water basin filling up by metallic or other solids.

Track 11 : Hydrogen Production

Although hydrogen element   is abundant on the  earth it is  always found as part of another compound, such as water (H2O), and must be separated from the compounds that contain it before it can be used in vehicles. Once separated, it  can be used along with oxygen from the air in a fuel cell to produce electricity by  an electrochemical process. There are a number of methods to produce hydrogen.   Thermochemical processes use heat and chemical reactions to release hydrogen from organic materials such as fossil fuels and biomass. Water (H2O) can be split into hydrogen (H2) and oxygen (O2) using electrolysis or solar energy. Microorganisms such as bacteria and algae can also  produce hydrogen through biological processes.

Track 13 : Heat Transfer Operation

 The  various mechanisms of heat transfer are  thermal conduction, thermal convection, thermal radiation, and transfer of energy by phase changes. Heat conduction or diffusion, is the direct exchange of kinetic energy of particles through the boundary between two systems. Convection occurs due to the  density differences brought by differences in temperature involving  the transfer of heat through the motion of hot fluid from one place to another. Thermal radiation occurs  due to  the energy  transfer by  means of   photons in electromagnetic waves  through a vacuum or any transparent medium.
