BEPRC research grant awarded
SEER Group, in collaboration with Dr. Md. Saiful Islam (Lecturer, Department of Glass and Ceramic Engineering, BUET), has been awarded with a research grant by the Bangladesh Energy and Power Research Council (BEPRC) in the renewable energy category. The title of the project is “Integrated Concept for Converting Solid Waste to Energy (InConSolE) – Waste to Biocoal for Power Generation“.
Background of the project:
The concept combines state of the art technologies for generating electricity in the most efficient way with minimum impact on the environment. This can provide multiple levels of benefit to the urban societies which produce substantial amount of waste. Solid waste, although currently dumped as landfill, has significant potential for energy generation.
On the whole, the integrated concept is carefully devised to provide a sustainable solution for the most efficient waste to energy conversion which will make multifaceted impacts on the energy sector by producing electricity and ensuring a better environment for the society. To achieve these goals, the project is proposed to conduct an in-depth study to evaluate the concept by carrying out bench-scale to pilot-scale trials complemented with techno-economic assessment to quantify the possibility of large scale implementation through commercialisation.
