Conference on Energy & Chemicals from Biomass sponsored by AICTE @ Pondicherry Engineering College
About the College

The college is an autonomous institution funded by Government of Puducherry and is affiliated to Pondicherry University which is a Central University of Government of India.

Overview

Energy is an important ingredient in the development of any country. India imports petroleum to an extent of 80% of its total requirement. It implies that oil prices and oil availability are not under our control and such a kind of dependence on imports leads to energy insecurity. In this context, renewable sources of energy especially bioenergy gains significance. Besides, biomass is a storehouse of various chemicals. Much advancement has taken place in the utilization of biomass for deriving energy as well as chemicals.

The NCECB will bring together professionals who will show-case the progress achieved by them in the field of biomass research. The conference will have (i) plenary sessions of eminent professors from IITs, IISc, NITs, Anna University, etc., (ii) oral presentations by the researchers / professionals working in this field, and (iii) exhibition.

Call for Papers

Technical papers reporting original research, case studies, review papers are invited for oral presentation in the following topics:

  • Biomass resource assessment, types of biomass, properties, drying, briquetting,
  • Vegetable oil, transesterification, biodiesel,
  • Thermo-chemical processes- combustion, gasification, pyrolysis,
  • Bio-chemical processes-anaerobic digestion, fermentation,
  • Biohydrogen, syngas, Fischer Tropsch synthesis,
  • Phenolic compounds, sugars, solvents, oxy-chemicals,
  • Biorefining,
  • Manufacture of charcoal, activated carbon, electrode grade carbon,
  • Bioenergy conversion devices like furnaces, engines, turbines,
  • Machineries for biomass processing, etc.

Any other work, directly or indirectly connected with the above topics of the conference, will also be considered.

The authors are requested to send an abstract not exceeding 2 pages as per the template ‘Template-abstract.docx’ by email to ncecb.pec@gmail.com on or before 5-8-2019.
