1. Project on "BIOFUEL FOR SUSTAINABLE ENERGY MANAGEMENT " under DST Program.
Principal Investigator Mrs. Alpana Vijaykumar
Bio fuel Project (DST )
Bio fuels for Sustainable Energy Management
The project is funded by Department of Science & Technology , New Delhi under its Women Scientist program.
Develop burners which uses unprocessed Plant oil such as Jetropha, Karanj forcooking purposes.Use of oil cake and Bio waste in briquette forms by partial oxidation Processing of Plant oil for fuel use.
Work Done. A number of alternatives using unprocessed and processed plant oil have been developed. The traditional Prabhakar stoves were tried out as an alternative wick stove.
The Babington burner is a ball type burner using compressed air for pressurized burning.The filtered plant oil using activated charcoal has also been successfully used in conventional kerosene pressure stoves. The tests are continued further.
2. Vermi-Biofiltration [VBF] System

Nutritional Gardening and Terrace Development
City farming is an innovative technology, which deals with, farming in urban areas and essentially on the terraces, balconies, un-used areas, road-sides and community gardens or open spaces.
City farming is non-commercial type of farming in which the objective is
Planting more of vegetables, herbs and fruit trees than ornamentals.
Creating green-pockets [lungs] in cities.
City farms are planned mainly for nutritional gardens.
City farming is for the products utilized for home consumption. Here we need variety of edible plants, hence it is called mixed farming.
Methodology of city farming is strictly of organic nature, which avoids chemicals and pesticides.
