Student Project Programme - Biofuel Projects (SPP-Biofuel)

 

Biofuel (fuel obtained from non-edible oil seeds and other regenerative sources) is fast emerging as the alternate fuel for transport and power sector. The rapid increase in the fossil fuel price and the efforts for climate change mitigation has compelled the authorities to look at new renewable sources for fuel production. Biofuel is one such alternate fuel which is being developed in several countries as an important source of renewable energy.

KSCST located in the campus of Indian Institute of Science has been playing a pivotal role in promoting Science & Technology through various R&D projects which are socially relevant. Student Project Programme (SPP) is a flagship programme of the Council and has been encouraging engineering students and others to take up innovative projects.

KSCST has recently set up a Biofuel Cell in collaboration with Karnataka State Bioenergy Development Board (KSBDB). KSBDB is the lead agency in the State extensively working for Biofuel Development and has taken up major projects to promote the Biofuel Development and create awareness in the State. In this direction KSBDB has set up of Biofuel Information and Demonstration Centers in all the districts of the State with a focus on Research and Development in the Biofuel area.

In this connection KSBDB & KSCST jointly has taken an initiative to sponsor the students projects on Biofuels for technical guidance and financial assistance for Final year engineering Students (BE, M.Tech and MBA Students) and post graduate (M.Sc.) Students.

STUDENT PROJECTS PROGRAMME - BIOFUEL PROJECTS

(SPP - 41st SERIES : 2017 - 2018)

 


PROJECT PROPOSALS ARE INVITED FROM
FINAL YEAR ENGINEERING (BE / B.Tech), M.Tech., M.Sc.,
AND MBA STUDENTS

 

Karnataka State Council for Science and Technology (KSCST) and Karnataka State Bioenergy Development Board (KSBDB) invites project proposals from the final year engineering, M.Tech and MBA Students for sponsorship, under the 41st series of Student Project Programme under two categories :

STREAM A :

The submitted projects should be selected from the list of "best projects of the year award under biofuel projects" and the deliverables should clearly indicate the improvement / additional development made with respect to the selected project. KSCST has prepared such "best projects list" for the last five years ((35th Series - 2011-2012 to 40th Series - 2016 - 2017) and students should look into this list and prepare the proposal.

The details of the Awarded projects are available in the link cited below :

KSCST sponsored project details and information from 1977-78 to 2016-2017 is available online in the KSCST website as "SPREAD Online". The abstract details and full version of 6 years reports are also available. This also provides student information on completed projects and problems / gaps in technology to develop a project proposal, references and avoid duplication of the project.

The Project proposals will be evaluated by a panel of experts for consideration for sponsorship by KSCST. The amount sponsored will be sent to the Principal by Cheque. The project guide should take necessary steps to utilise this amount for the project work and submit the utilisation certificate and statement of expenditure through the Principal of the institution.

The Mid-term evaluation of the projects will be done at the identified nodal centres or on video conferencing mode. The students need to demonstrate their project when invited to do so. The selection of projects for Seminar and Exhibition will be based on such evaluation.

It is mandatory for the project team to exhibit / demonstrate their project in the nodal centre and in the seminar and exhibition (if selected). The final Seminar and Exhibition will be held during July 2018 or 1st Week of August 2018.
