Visit To Sewage Treatment Plant,Delawas

The department of Biotechnology , IIS University recently organized an educational visit to Sewage Water Treatment Plant on 30th  March 2016 for the UG and PG students of Biotechnology and Microbiology. The visit was organized on the initiative and guidance of Dr Neha Batra and Dr Radhika Sharma. The destination was ‘Sewage Treatment Plant’ Delawas a unit of JMC. The plant handles 62.5 MLD load of domestic sewage which is approx. 60-70% of the total load. At the plant, the students carefully studied and observed the complete process of sewage water treatment, functions of its components, and concept of ‘waste to energy’. Officials at STP guided the students regarding different aspects of treatment of sewage water and gave satisfactory answers to different questions raised by the students.The Plant is based on conventional activated sludge process with diffused aeration system. The sludge is handled in anaerobic digesters. Digested sludge is pumped to centrifuge unit where it is converted to semi solid form having consistency of 22% solids and is then used as manure. The plant further reduces the quantity of bio-solids through an anaerobic treatment process. Here, in the absence of air, anaerobic bacteria digest the bio-solids, producing "biogas", a mixture of methane and carbon dioxide. Methane is the main component of natural gas, and the biogas produced, can be burnt in an engine or turbine to produce power and generate electricity. In this way, anaerobic treatment can generate electrical energy which in turn powers the entire sewage treatment plant. The flexible technical configuration of the plant and the continuous availability of different wastewater and sludge compositions for experiments ensures, even on a small scale, the customization to new research tasks at any time. At last it can be concluded that , the visit was quite enlightening and enriched the knowledge of students and staff alike.

 

 

 

 

 

A one day industrial visit to Saras Dairy, Jaipur was organized on 25th August 2015 by Department of Biotechnology for B.Sc. and M.Sc. (Biotechnology & Microbiology) students. Sixty students accompanied by two faculty members participated in the same. The trip was aimed at embracing our students with the most recent and current trends in the field of Milk microbiology and with the basic techniques and methods involved in processing and manufacturing of milk products.  

The Dairy plant handling capacity is 1.5 lakh lt per day with the facilities to pack milk, ghee etc., Its main products are Ghee, Liquid Milk Srikhand, Paneer, Chaach. etc. Students took keen interest in the visit. Over all it was a very learning experience and students were looking forward to more of such type of visits.

 

The three day conference on  Biotechnology and Nanotechnology organized by Department of Biotechnology was held at The IIS University. At the outset was the welcome note by Dr. Ashok Gupta, Patron and Vice Chancellor, The IIS University. Prof. Pradeep Bhatnagar, Dean life sciences, threw a light on the aims and objectives of the conference. Keynote address was delivered by Dr. S.J.S. Flora wherein he addressed the issue of environmental pollution in terms of arsenic, ICBN started with its first session which was headed by Dr. S.J.S. Flora as a chairperson. There were five sessions headed by Dr. S.J.S. Flora, Prof. Y Singh, Dr. Krishna Mohan, Dr. V.K. Bhalla and Akhil Agarwal as chairpersons respectively. The conference had a total of 33 oral presentations and 79 poster presentations by both the faculty members and the students. All the talks had indeed been useful for all of us as they provided an insight in the recent advances going on in the field of biotechnology and nanotechnology. There were awards for best oral and best posters under different categories.
