RESEARCH AREAS

Our research group is currently working with the broad theme of biorefinery with special emphasis on heterogeneous catalysis. We are currently working on following applications.  

  • Steam reforming and oxidative steam reforming
  • Hydrodeoxygenation of vegetable oils
  • Oligomerization of olefins
  • Thermodynamic analysis
  • Process design using Aspen Plus
  • Techno-economic analysis
