DST Invites Online Proposals on Waste Management Technologies from Engineers and Scientists

DST has invited proposals from scientists, engineers, researchers and technologists under the Waste Management Technologies Program

Department of Science and Technology (DST) has invited online proposals from scientists, engineers, and technologists for the Waste Management Technologies Program initiated by DST, Government of India. Applicants must be working in universities, academic institutions; R&D institutions, and laboratories that have adequate infrastructure and facilities to carry out R&D work.

The program aims at making the environment better through the usage of scientific innovation to treat the huge amount of residuals generated by industrial development and consumption lifestyle. The online proposals should mention clearly achievable milestones, timelines, justifiable budget requirement and engagement with prospective technology transfer partners or technology transfer facilitating bodies, says DST.

Objectives of the Waste Management Technologies Program by DST

  • Taking stock of technological development, assessing, analysing and looking for material recycling systems with low environment loading and improve upon them or find better alternatives.
  • Developing waste management technologies that can be adopted in small and medium scale enterprises in order to improve their productivity and global competitiveness.
  • Establishing techno-economic feasibility of proposed methodologies or technologies.

Some Topics on Which Online Proposals Can Be Sent to DST

  • Treatment and possible reuse of fouled membranes.
  • Smart/AI system for operation and maintenance of waste treatment systems.
  • Management and recycling of End of Life Vehicles, Tyres, Batteries, Catalytic Converters and other subcomponents.
  • Management of waste from the Power Industry.
  • Industrial Hazardous & non-hazardous Wastes, including Steel Industry and Mining Waste.

Interested applicants would be required to send online proposals before 14 November 2020 on the official website. . Financial support will be provided to those selected for temporary staff salaries, equipment, consumables, domestic travel and other miscellaneous items. Those who wish to know more about the initiative are advised to go through the official notification for more details.

    Waste management system Automation is widely considered field for more innovation which requires more engineering requirements.In most of waste management system the equipements are controlled mechanically by labours which requires more human needs .More dependence on human physical strength with definetely leads to a saffocated system .all type of wastes can’t be managed purely by humans itself which leads to more time requirements and health problems(toxic wastes such as radioactive components) even though it is necessary to deal with daily wastes.so a automated system for separating the wastes according to their nature is one step for speeding the process and thus by increasing productivity. so that the labours with minimum skill can perform the operations.so the level of automation in the field of waste management demands certain requirements such as good engineering design in both hardware and software and technical advanced labours .apart from decomposing wastes and convert it to organic fertilizers .why cant we use it for introducing a bio gas plant which can deal with thousands of tons of wastes .At the same time we can use wastes which is in backlog for couple of days results in a better by product apart from simple fertlizers.in coming das this bio gas plants have huge prominance and have a huge role to play which can meet usage of nubers of house holds.my idea is to decompose waste into energy good quality energy along with fertilizers.

    I savour, result in I found exactly what I was having a look for.
    You have ended my four day long hunt! God Bless you man. Have a nice day.
    Bye
