My name is Sarthak Rajesh Dange and I am currently a graduate student pursuing my masters in environmental engineering. I have been in research work since 1 year under Dr Wen Zhang at New Jersey Institute of Technology.
My work with Dr Zhang includes:
1) Working on growing algae and extracting lipids from them which would be used as a bio fuel for generating energy.
2) Obtained energy generation through the use of microbial fuel cell (MFC) as a clean source of energy for portable toilets and on further research resulted in receiving ample amount of charge from MFC when connected in series.
3) Using REM (Reactive electrochemical membrane) Technic for obtaining pure water through development and characterization of ultra-filtration TiO2 Magneli Phase reactive electrochemical membranes and developed a prototype for water purifying purpose at laboratory level.
