​NEWRI-R3C Sharing Session​ (​NRSS) Season 4​

Published on: 11-Aug-2017

Objective

  1. To improve skills on public​ speaking, questions handling and preparation of presentation aids (contents/formats/illustrations) for all R3Cians.
  2. To update research progress, increase awareness of R3Cians as ambassadors representing NTU-NEWRI-R3C and promote bonding as a cohesive research group.
  3. To promote interdisciplinary learning, discover opportunity in the interfaces between disciplines/projects and encourage cooperation in research proposals + TD/patents development.

 


Session 7​: 17 November​ 2017, 11.00am to 12.00​p​​m,  NEWRI Meeting Room 2, CTO-06-08​

Speaker 1: Dr Piyarat Weerachanchai​​ (Research Fellow)

Title: Development and Application of High-Performance Air Separation Membranes for Oxygen-Enhanced Waste-to-Energy Incineration

Introduction: 

Project introduction and Literature review​:

- Project overview;
- Benefits and issues of Oxygen Enriched Gas (OEG) applications in thermal processes​;
- Combustion controlling with flue gas recirculation;
- Benefits of  CO2 in gasification process​;

Speaker 2: Ms Jayaweera Jayadana Ranathunga Arachchige Supuli​​​ (PhD Student)

Title: Production of C-dots from Hydrothermal Carbonisation of Durian shell Waste​​

Introduction: 

Brief overview of C-dots and its applications and Describe the methodology to prepare C-Dots from Durian shells and the initial results.



Session 6​: 3 November​ 2017, 9.30am to 10.30​a​m,  NEWRI Meeting Room 1, CTO-06-08​

Speaker 1: Ms Fang Wenjuan​ (Research Associate)

Title: Indoor Air Pollutant Control Strategy: with Special Focus on Haze Episode​

Introduction: 

Glyphosate (N-phosphonomethyl-glycine) (GPS) is a nonselective, broad-spectrum systemic herbicide. It, due to the zwitterionic behaviour induces strong metal chelating abilities resulting in the formation of metal complexes with heavy metals containing in soil and water. Previous studies have demonstrated the increased risk of kidney diseases by GPS-metal complex detected in surface waters. To overcome the health risks associated with the utilization of GPS in agriculture, the removal of herbicide from water is required. The scope of this st​udy is to analyze the characteristics and speciation of GPS-Metal complexes and develop a technique to adsorb and remove GPS-Metal complexes.​

This presentation will cover:

- Brief background of this project;
- Haze in Singapore and Tianjin (Sources, physical/chemical/optical properties);
- Indoor and outdoor PM relationship of residential environment.
 

 

Session 5​: 20 October​ 2017, 9.15am to 10.15​a​m,  NEWRI Meeting Room 1, CTO-06-08​

Speaker 1: Ms Gayana Herath​ (PhD Student)

Title: Removal of Glyphosate Metal Complexes Using an Adsorbent​

Introduction: 

Glyphosate (N-phosphonomethyl-glycine) (GPS) is a nonselective, broad-spectrum systemic herbicide. It, due to the zwitterionic behaviour induces strong metal chelating abilities resulting in the formation of metal complexes with heavy metals containing in soil and water. Previous studies have demonstrated the increased risk of kidney diseases by GPS-metal complex detected in surface waters. To overcome the health risks associated with the utilization of GPS in agriculture, the removal of herbicide from water is required. The scope of this st​udy is to analyze the characteristics and speciation of GPS-Metal complexes and develop a technique to adsorb and remove GPS-Metal complexes.​
