A Seminar on “Block Copolymer Nanocomposite Membranes for CO2 Separation”

NANOTECHNOLOGY CAN IMPROVE THE SEPARATION PERFORMANCE OF COMMERCIALLY AVAILABLE POLYMER MANUFACTURES.


With existing reliance on coal fired power plants, research finds that the emission of carbon dioxide (CO2) per year is around 2 billion tons. Such depletion of natural resources do pose threat for scarcity of power as well as issues relating to pollution. Therefore, to ensure sustainable utilization of the fossil fuel resource and to introduce alternative means of energy, researchers in a seminar at the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering of the World University of Bangladesh propose the alternative use of membrane technology for CO2 separation. In a paper presented by Dr. Md. Musfiqur Rahman, Post-Doctoral Researcher, Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht, Institute of Polymer Research, Department of Polymer Synthesis, Geesthacht, Germany, Dr. Musfiqur emphasize that nanotechnology can improve the separation performance of commercially available polymer manufactures and hence contribute to power development. This was a series of the seminars held in the department of EEE in collaboration with IEEE to enhance knowledge dissemination. The session was graced by the pioneer of Engineering Education for Diploma Engineers in Bangladesh and the Vice Chancellor of the University, Emeritus Professor Dr. Abdul Mannan Choudhury as the Chief Guest. Amongst others present were Professor Dr. M Nurul Islam, Pro-Vice Chancellor of WUB; Professor AFM Abdur Rouf, Dean of the Faculty of Sciences of WUB and Prof. Dr. Quazi Deen Mohammad Khosru, Advisor, Department of EEE, WUB as Special Guests. Prof. Dr. Md. Amanullah Choudhury, Head, Department of EEE, WUB chaired the session.
