Water is simple but it is yet so powerful. Wastewater from manufacturing or chemical processes in industries contributes to water pollution. Industrial waste water usually contains specific and readily identifiable chemical compounds. Water pollution is concentrated within a few subsectors, mainly in the form of toxic wastes and organic pollutants..

Waste2Fresh we address the issue with the focus on the textile industry that produces 20 per cent of global wastewater which affects the ecosystems, animals, human food chains and soil/groundwater pollution. Water pollution is a major problem in our textile industry.

A Novel and Sustainable Approach to Enhance the Li-Ion Storage Capability of Recycled Graphite Anode from Spent Lithium-Ion Batteries 26/05/2023

Recycling and up cycling is key to sustainable environment. One such area we are working is on recycling of Lithium Ion batteries. The project was funded by Department of Science and Technology, Government of India and British Council India Council, New Delhi, India. Even though the project was completed a year ago. Our results and knowledge exchange is progressing to next level. Thanks to our partners Kumar Martha (IIT Hyderabad) and their team Madhushri Bhar and our Industry partner Nile Limited. Lot more to come in this space... from our collaboration...

The ubiquitous manufacturing of lithium-ion batteries (LIBs) due to high consumer demand produces inevitable e-waste that imposes severe environmental and resource sustainability challenges. In this work, the charge storage capability and Li-ion kinetics of the recovered water-leached graphite (WG) anode from spent LIBs are enhanced by using an optimized amount of recycled graphene nanoflakes (GNFs) as an additive. Besides, the unique morphology of spherical graphite particles trapping into graphene nanoflakes provides mechanical stability over long-term cycling. This work explains an efficient strategy to upgrade the electrochemical compatibility of recovered graphite anode from spent LIBs toward next-generation high-energy-density LIBs.

Our group is working in collaboration with Majicom, a social enterprise to produce low cost catalytic systems, to clean municipal wastewater in Tanzania. This water kiosk is priced to be 50% cheaper than bottled water sources and the profit goes to maintenance and fed back to the Ardhi university in Tanzania.
