Abstract:

The nutrient footprint is an indicator which combines the number of nutrients captured for use in the production chain and the percentage of nutrients used either in the primary product or in the entire system (primary+secondary products). We defined N and P flows associated with the Finnish beef production and consumption chain and tested the nutrient footprint method using data from a Finnish beef Life Cycle Assessment study. Each 1000kg of Finnish beef consumed requires 1700kg N and 189kg P during its life cycle. The percentage of virgin nutrient is more than 50% for N, but only 25% for P. Nutrient use efficiency in the primary product and the entire system is 1% and 47%, respectively, for N and 0.2% and 74%, respectively, for P. The most nutrients were lost during wastewater treatment. Apart from wastewater treatment, NUE (P) was lowest in the food
consumption and processing phases. In the processing, P was lost in the body parts (skull, brain, spinal cord and vertebrae) which are incinerated as class 1 risk materials of TSEs. In the food-processing phase, 28% of animal N and 56% of animal P ends up in the secondary products, especially animal skin (14% of animal N and 1% of animal P). In transition towards a sustainable nutrient performance in protein production and consumption, it is essential to define identify the hot spots of nutrient leakage
in order us to be able to close those and to improve protein economy

Biography:

Mehul Patel has completed Master’s & PhD in Polymer Engg & Tech from the premier institute in the world for this field, Institute of Chemical Technology, Mumbai.
He is working past 3 years as Professor & Scientist at CIPET, Govt. of India. Moreover past 7 years of experience in chemical laboratories & working on 17 different projects for government and public sectors helps me to endeavour to put the wheel into motion he has published four books worldwide. i) Novel green approach for
the recycling of e-waste. ii) The novel foldable mechanism for space application. iii) Blend of HDPE & Reclaimed Rubber. iv) Development of Bio-based Polymers for Industrial coating application. He has gained experience in recovery & reuse rather than doing recycling and matter of fact, he was the only person to develop & use Zeolite ZMG-5 as a catalyst for hydro-cracking in India (2008) & Ionic liquid (EMIM+ BF4-) used to extract e-waste elements

Abstract:

The printed circuit boards (PCBs) are the platform upon which microelectronic components such as, semiconductor chips and capacitors are mounted. Even though its usage and end-of-life cannot be stopped but could be recycled or reused.
The abrupt and non-stop growth in the field of technology, are the reasons for the huge dumping of these e-wastes. For the last few decades, the research on recycling of PCBs had been at hike due to its hazardous compositions. The researchers tried to recycle this e-waste PCBs in different methods like chemical methods, thermal or pyrolysis methods, mechanical methods, etc. In the above methods, the thermal and chemical methods produce a large number of hazardous waste products during the separation process. In mechanical methods the separation and securing the purity of the metals used in the printed circuit board is difficult. The recycling of hazardous e-waste printed circuit board (PCB) in the green route is discussed. The most two critical problems of removing solder and also the thermoset organic materials are solved in this research work in greener route. Electron beam (EB)/Gamma radiation plays a pivotal role to degrade the thermoset to different extents and ease the removal of copper foil, glass fiber and recover & reuse of thermoset resin from the circuit board. The degraded materials were characterized by FTIR, DSC, TGA & rheometer.

Abstract:

The renewable energy resources are particularly suited for the provision of rural power supplies and a major advantage is that equipment such as biogas, flat plate solar driers, wind machines, etc., can be constructed using local resources and without the high capital cost of more conventional equipment. Currently, the ‘non-commercial’ fuels wood, crop residues, and animal dung are used in large amounts in the rural areas of developing countries, principally for heating and cooking; the method of use is highly inefficient. In addition to the drain on resources, such an increase in consumption consequences, together with the increased hazards of pollution and the safety problems associated with a large nuclear fission programmes makes this type of energy environment unfriendly.
