Student Project Programme - Biofuel Projects (SPP-Biofuel)
Biofuel (fuel obtained from non-edible oil seeds and other regenerative sources) is fast emerging as the alternate fuel for transport and power sector. The rapid increase in the fossil fuel price and the efforts for climate change mitigation has compelled the authorities to look at new renewable sources for fuel production. Biofuel is one such alternate fuel which is being developed in several countries as an important source of renewable energy.
KSCST located in the campus of Indian Institute of Science has been playing a pivotal role in promoting Science & Technology through various R&D projects which are socially relevant. Student Project Programme (SPP) is a flagship programme of the Council and has been encouraging engineering students and others to take up innovative projects.
KSCST has recently set up a Biofuel Cell in collaboration with Karnataka State Bioenergy Development Board (KSBDB). KSBDB is the lead agency in the State extensively working for Biofuel Development and has taken up major projects to promote the Biofuel Development and create awareness in the State. In this direction KSBDB has set up of Biofuel Information and Demonstration Centers in all the districts of the State with a focus on Research and Development in the Biofuel area.
In this connection KSBDB & KSCST jointly has taken an initiative to sponsor the students projects on Biofuels for technical guidance and financial assistance for Final year engineering Students (BE, M.Tech and MBA Students) and post graduate (M.Sc.) Students.
