Amina F.

Amina is a native of Kerala. She holds a M. E. Chemical Engineering degree from Calicut University and is pursuing a PhD under Dr. Amol Deshpande at BITS Pilani K K Birla Goa campus.

PhD Thesis Topic: Application of Chemical Looping / Unmixed Combustion (CLC/UMC) for sustained heat transfer to liquids

Her research demonstrates the application of chemical looping/unmixed combustion (CLC/UMC) for generating hot liquid utility/steam as an energy-efficient, environmentally friendly and cost-effective alternative to existing premixed (conventional) combustion-based hot utility generation systems.

The work includes the design and fabrication of the proposed system at lab scale, conduction of experimental study (reference: water heating), modeling and CFD simulation of the proposed system and its techno-economic analysis.

This research work has resulted in four peer-reviewed journal publications and five conference papers.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Narayan Korde

Narayan is currently working as an Associate Director at Teva Pharmaceuticals Ltd., Mumbai. He has around 18 years of industrial experience in Energy Management, Global Engineering Projects and more than 500+ Utility design and consultancies globally. He is a Chemical Engineer from J.N.E. College, Cha. Sambhaji Nagar (formerly Aurangabad), Maharashtra and completed his M.Tech in Energy from Savitribai Phule (Pune) University, followed by MBA in Operations Management from ICFAI, Hyderabad.

Currently, he is pursuing PhD as a part-time student under Dr. Amol Deshpande at BITS Pilani, K K Birla Goa Campus.

PhD Thesis Topic: Techno-economic feasibility of flue gas waste heat recovery system integrated with heat pump for process oil-fired boiler

His research demonstrates the optimum waste heat recovery potential while avoiding the sulfur dew point-induced acidic corrosion irrespective of the process load variations and minimizing the bypassing of the hot flue gas from the process boilers. The study also explores the application of the heat pump to improve the overall boiler efficiency without impacting acidic corrosion. The work includes defining the industrial problem statement, designing and installing the proposed system and plant scale, collecting the data and its analysis to verify the differentiation in the key performance parameters between the conventional and the proposed modified system including the process modeling to generalize its application for similar systems

The research has resulted in two conference papers / posters.
