ABOUT US

Bioprocess Engineering Laboratory, is a integral component of Department of Biotechnology, Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur, a premier research Institute of the country. It primarily focuses on Biological Hydrogen production processes. Accentuating diverse facts of research in the field of Biohydrogen, it has developed the expertise in last ten productive years.

The laboratory has been actively associated with research in different areas relating to biohydrogen production, its main emphasis being to increase yields of hydrogen from the existing processes and its generation from waste. The lab has been working on both the routes, viz. dark and photo fermentative hydrogen production for more than one decade and has also done some substantial research on the isolation of potential H2 producing strains, development of continuous hydrogen production process especially in customized bioreactors. Also, extensive work has been done on microbial production of hydrogen from sewage sludge, metagenomic profiling of potential biohydrogen producers from renewable biomass and isolation and characterization of hydrogenase from E.cloacae. Another new facet being explored in the lab is the simultaneous generation of current and biohydrogen from microbial fuel cells (MFCs).
