M.Tech & M.Sc PROJECTS: M.Tech. Project: “ENERGY REDUCTION IN ZINC ELECTROWINNIG” The dissertation deals with studies that result in decrease in energy consumption during Electrowinning of zinc by the use of additives like Methanol, Perchloric acid, Charcoal, Coke breeze and Coal. The principle applied being the decrease in electrode potential of the anode that results in decrease in energy consumption. The effects of various operating conditions like Current Density, Concentrations, Particle Size of Additives and Current Efficiency on the Energy Consumption were studied. M.Sc. Project: “PREPARATION AND HIGH TEMPERATURE RESISTIVITY STUDIES OF Bi 2212”. Zinc doped semi-conducting phases of Bismuth 2212 phase found to exhibit a wide range of interesting behaviour starting from oxide insulator to high temperature superconductors.
