Title of the Paper : Enhanced stability of C-phycocyanin colorant by extrusion encapsulation

Research Description : C-phycocyanin (C-PC) a blue color phycobiliproteins used as a food colorant, therapeutics, medicines, health food and biomarkers. In the present study, morphological property of encapsulated C-PC and its stability under various conditions like temperature, pH conditions are discussed. Microencapsulated droplets formed by extrusion found to be spherical with average size 1.2 ± 0.1 mm. SEM micrographs of freeze dried encapsulate confirmed the spherical shape. The effect of droplet formation with varying alginate percentage (1.5%, 2.0% and 2.5% w/v) was studied. In the stability test at 70 °C and 80 °C relative concentration (CR %) was found to be 86.89 and 88.19%, respectively. The encapsulated C-PC showed a slow degradation at higher temperature compared to without encapsulated C-PC which was confirmed by UV–visible absorbance.

Title of the Paper : Production of bioethanol from lignocellulosic biomass

Research Description : This study deals with the use of renewable lignocellulosic biomass to synthesis ethanol as an alternative energy source to crude oil using a low-cost feasible process. Lignocellulosic biomass usually contains hemicellulose and cellulose which could be converted to fermentable sugar like glucose. Renewable agricultural byproducts like sugarcane bagasse, wheat straw, water hyacinth, ragi, and rice straw were selected for producing ethanol. They were pretreated with mild, dilute acid using 2% H2SO4 (v/v), followed by enzymatic saccharification using locally isolated fungal species Aspergillus niger to convert complex polysaccharide into simple sugar. Optimization of reaction condition was carried out with the help of chemically predefined media at temperature of 38 C and pH 4.8. The reduced sugars were estimated using the dinitrosalicylic acid method. Fermentation was carried using yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae by stationary fermentation method at temperature of 35 C under anaerobic conditions. Produced ethanol was estimated using NaOH-Iodine precipitation method. Maximum ethanol yield was obtained with sugarcane bagasse around 11.90 g/lit followed by wheat straw 9.56 g/lit, rice straw 8.84 g/lit, ragi straw 7.01 g/lit, and water hyacinth 6.19 g/lit of ethanol in fermentation.

Title of the Paper : Forward osmosis membrane concentration of raw sugarcane juice

Research Description : Conventional thermal evaporation and pressure driven process that is reverse osmosis are widely used to concentrate liquid foods, but they are highly energy intensive and expensive. Forward osmosis which is promising membrane process is extensively studied as an alternative process to concentrate liquid foods. This paper focuses on comparison of thermally concentrated and forward osmosis membrane processes to concentrate sugarcane juice. Forward osmosis (FO) stands next in cutting edge membrane technology to concentrate the sugarcane juice to syrup. The difference in osmotic pressure across the membrane is the driving force for FO, wherein the water from sugarcane juice is transferred to the other side that is to draw solution through the membrane at atmospheric pressure and ambient temperature.

Title of the Paper : Concentration of C-Phycocyanin from Spirulina Platensis using forward osmosis membrane process

Research Description : Forward osmosis is a novel membrane process used for removal of water from dilute aqueous solutions and concentrating them, products such as liquid foods and natural colors can be concentrated while retaining organoleptic and nutritional properties. The concentration of a natural colorant called C-Phycocyanin (C-PC) extract from a Cyanobacteria Spirulina platensis was explored by forward osmosis process. The effect of various parameters such as change in Feed and Osmotic Agent (OA) flow rate (25–125 mL/min), OA concentration (1–6 M NaCl) was studied during the concentration of C-PC by using two different modules having different membrane area for forward osmosis. An attempt was made in order to obtain a food grade C-PC. The extract of crude C-PC content was concentrated from 0.288 mg mL−1 initial concentration to 0.313 mg mL−1.

Title of the Paper : Microencapsulation of C-Phycocyanin by Microfludics

Research Description : C-phycocyanin a blue colored pigment from Spirulina platensis is selected as encapsulating biomaterial. This pigment is a phycobiliprotein is used as natural dye and has good therapeutic values. In the present study, C-phycocyanin is encapsulated within calcium alginate gel matrix using microfluidic device. A microfluidic device comprising of two cross-junction channels (100 µm depth, 200 µm width) is designed for encapsulation of the pigment. Micro-fluidic devices have been used for continuous synthesis, control, and characterization of high-quality droplets, in which the synthesis process can deliver mono dispersed size distribution. C-phycocyanin pigment is mixed with sodium alginate solution dispersed through the microfluidic channel.

Title of the Paper : Removal of CO2 using Aqueous Blends of Amines by Chemical Absorption Method: Modeling

Research Description : Carbon capture from point source emissions has been recognized as one of the several
strategies necessary for mitigating unfettered release of greenhouse gases (GHG’s) into
the atmosphere to prevent global warming. To keep the GHG’s at manageable level,
large decrease of CO2 should take place through capture technologies like chemical
absorption. Alkanolamines such as monoethanolamine (MEA), diethanolamine (DEA),
and N-methyldiethanolamine (MDEA) have been used for gas treating at industries.
There has been a growing interest today for gas treating by using blended amines. The
mixed amine systems, which combine the higher equilibrium capacity of the tertiary
amine with the higher reaction rate of the primary or secondary amine, can bring about
considerable improvement in gas absorption like MDEA/MEA and MDEA/DEA are
compared based on the reaction kinetics. Modeling is applied for absorption rate
constants for the above blended amines using MATLAB.
