PEACE (Petrochemical Engineering Association for Country Empowerment)
PEACE provides a platforms for staffs and students to exchange their views and knowledge on emerging trends in the energy sectors by conducting guest lectures, group discussions and symposiums.
Research and Development – Department of Petrochemical Engineering
A waste material (Dolochar) from sponge Iron plants can be converted into useful value added products by using single step pyrolysis process
The final year students from Petrochemical Engineering Department of JCT COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY COIMBATORE have developed a novel technique to convert the dolochar into activated carbon which can be effectively utilized as an adsorbant for several industrial purposes. Several tons of waste material emanating from Sponge Iron industries can be adopted to generate wealth from waste by using this method.
