Online FDP on Bio-Hydrogen Production & Technology Development by MNNIT Allahabad [Jan 11-15]: Register by Jan 4


The Department of Biotechnology, Motilal Nehru National Institute of Technology (MNNIT), Allahabad is organizing an AICTE Five Day Faculty Development Programme (FDP) on Bio-hydrogen Production & Technology Development: A future renewable energy source from January 11 to 15, 2021.

Motilal Nehru National Institute of Technology Allahabad, formerly Motilal Nehru Regional Engineering College, is a public technical university located in Prayagraj, Uttar Pradesh, India. It is one of the top NITs in the country, and like the rest of them, classified as an Institute of National Importance.

FDP Objectives

The FDP on “Bio-hydrogen production & technology development: A future renewable energy source” is aimed to provide information regarding the emerging field of bio-waste conversion to renewable energy “BIO-HYDROGEN” (carbon-free energy). This potential energy fuel can be used to fulfill the demand of present and future populations along with bio-waste reduction.

The intent of this FDP is to promote healthy discussion regarding bio-waste transformation to eco-friendly hydrogen energy by naturally occurring potent microbes (a small bioreactor) instead of the steam reforming process. The lectures will be delivered by eminent faculty members of academia & provide a forum for the exchange of knowledge & learning.

The main objective of the FDP course is to help in imparting quality technical education in the country and to support technical institutions in fostering research, innovation, and entrepreneurship through training. The course will definitely provide a positive impact on the participants who are in the practice of this qualitative emerging field or interested in this field.

  • Basics of microbes & microbial metabolic pathways
  • Potential bio-wastes for biohydrogen production
  • Direct & indirect photolysis of water
  • Dark-fermentation
  • Photo-fermentation
  • Integrated process: A biorefinery approach
  • Tools and techniques used in biohydrogen production for data analysis
  • Process optimization & strategies for enhanced yield & rate of biohydrogen production
