Electrochemical Technology in Pollution control

Indian Institute of Technology Bangalore , NPTEL and Indian Institute of Science Bangalore via Swayam


Electroanalytical techniques have assumed great importance in pollution monitoring of chemical species in the last 20 years. Electrochemical sensors including ion selective electrodes are employed to detect the pollution levels in all public spaces. They also find extensive applications in medical diagnosis, industrial process monitoring, communication industry etc. Fuel cells and battery technology are the energy sources of the future. Industrial wastes generated from electrochemical processes are one of the most hazardous wastes which need to be effectively managed. The course aims to introduce the fundamental principles of electrochemistry for routine and non-routine analysis, electrochemical processes used in the industry, battery and fuel cell technologies and recent advances in hazardous electrochemical waste management including concepts of zero liquid discharge. INTENDED AUDIENCE : Chemists and Chemical Engineers, Environmental Engineers, Environmental Scientists, Civil Engineers, Pollution Control Administrators, B.Sc, M.Sc and PhD studentsPREREQUISITES : 10 +2 + 3 years of BE / BSCBasic knowledge of differential calculus and integrationINDUSTRY SUPPORT : Chemical industries, Pollution Control
