Farrukh Raza Amin has earned a Ph.D. degree in Chemical Engineering and Technology from Beijing University of Chemical Technology (BUCT), China.
His doctoral research revolves around the conversion of lignocellulosic biomass to bioenergy using anaerobic digestion technology. During his stay at BUCT, he has written collaborative research projects entitled “Biochar Production from Agri-waste by Fixed Bed Pyrolysis: Mechanism and Application in Soil.” announced by the National Science Foundation (NSF), China and Pakistan Science Foundation (PSF).
The objective of this research project was to convert organic solid waste through different sources into biochar by conjunctively using for food security, generating clean energy and mitigating adverse environmental impacts.
He has written another project entitled “National Key Research Plan for Strategic International Cooperation in Scientific and Technological Innovation "Development and Demonstration of New Energy and Renewable Energy Systems” which was announced by Ministry of Science and Technology (MoST), China with the objectives to install and study the anaerobic digestion technology (two-phase), including reaction progress, process control, and reactor design, application design including feeding, pretreatment, digester, purification unit, and digestate for agriculture (replacement of fertilizer) for food security and optimization of a pilot-scale plant for the increase of efficiency.
He has published several research articles in SCI journals. He has also won the award of Excellent International Research Student for his contribution in the field of research. He firmly believes that a doctorate degree in Chemical Engineering and Technology enables him to respond to complex problems of today’s world such as climate change, food security, clean energy production by crossing the boundaries of more than one scientific program.
