Page 1-4

Abstract— This paper presented here is study about jet loop reactor technology for hydrogenation amination alkylation. A Jet Loop Reactor consists of a reaction autoclave, a circulation pump, a heat exchanger, a venturi type ejector similar to Stirred Tank Reactor but is arranged in a completely different way. Jet Loop Reactor gives excellent performance on a faster reaction scheme in the fully saturated hydrogenation process in palm oil refinery.

Abstract— Textile effluent are abundant source of colored pollutant that present an enhancing the environmental danger. So the color present in textile effluent is that major concern of researcher today. Dyestuff present in textile effluent is mainly xenobiotic in nature and not easily self-biodegradable. Intensive treatment is necessary to degrade the dyestuff and reduces the COD and turbidity of textile effluent. The present work is an attempt to review the all possible treatment methods for remove dyestuff from textile effluent by Advanced Oxidation Processes (AOPs). The proposed studies in this paper summarize the capability and potential of conventional treatment for degradation of dyestuff from textile effluent. Conventional method for treatment of textile effluent has own certain limitations that can be well overcome by advance oxidation processes (AOPs).

Keywords— Advanced oxidation processes, Dyestuff, Photolysis, membranes, nanoparticles, ozonation, photo- Fenton, TiO2, UV/hydrogen peroxide, supported photocatalysts, zerovalent iron.


Preparation Characterization of Biodegradable Plastic Blend
Ranjit Sumar, R. N. Desai
Page 17-20

Abstract— Plastics are widely used in packing and other industrial applications. The accumulation of plastic wastes in the environment creates many environmental problems. Thus development and use of biodegradable plastic was proposed as a solution for plastic waste problem. In this work, low-density polyethylene/linear low-density polyethylene/corn starch powder (LDPE/LLDPE/corn starch) films are prepared for obtaining of environment friendly biodegradable polymer. Master-batch of LLDPE and corn starch are prepared. Different quantities of master-batch are blended with LDPE. Different tests are performed to measure properties of film, these include tensile strength, elongation at break and density measurement of both the master batch with and without corn starch blend.

Keywords— Biodegradable Plastics, LDPE and Corn Starch, Biodegradation


Interactive MATLAB Program for Design of Multicomponent Distillation Column using FUG Method
Samidha Banka, Supritam Dutta
Page 21-25

Abstract— A MATLAB based GUI program is made on most popular shortcut method called FUG for design of multicomponent distillation column. The paper presents the various examples solved from the literature that has been run on this program, with detail justification for each result, along with real towers case studies. The paper also presents the various basic concepts of tray towers and their variations with changing parameters as governed by the equations.
