Surendra, K.C. Organic wastes to resources via insect farming. International Conference on Biotechnological Advances Towards Sustainable Developments (BIOSPECTRUM-2022) (Jun 27 – 29, 2022) MACFAST, Tiruvalla, Kerala, India (Invited speaker)
On November 13, 2022, Professor Emeritus Marvin R. Paulsen from Department of Agricultural and Biological Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign visited our lab. It was great discussing with Prof. Paulsen on different ongoing research in our lab. Prof. Paulsen was particularly interested in different agricultural and environmental applications of nanobubble technology. Thank you, Prof. Paulsen, for visiting us, and Dr. Leo Obaldo at Hawaii Department of Agriculture, for arranging this visit.
Our team has recently established a R&D collaboration with Biomass Energy Systems, Inc. (BESI) (https://besiusa.com). In partnership with BESI, the team is exploring potential of developing a decentralized biomass to bioenergy system, especially for Hawaiian and pacific Islands, for converting diverse organic wastes/residues, including organic fraction of municipal solid waste and agricultural and forestry residues.
In collaboration with a local Ag company, our team is exploring valorization of hemp residues into to bioenergy and bioproducts.
