19-SEP-2016: Professor Izharul Haq Farooqi, Incharge, Environmental Engineering Section and Dr Farrukh Basheer, Assistant Professor, Department of Civil Engineering, ZH College of Engineering and Technology, Aligarh Msulim University have recently attended the IWA Specialists Conference (MEWE2016) held at Copenhagen Denmark, where they presented research papers.
The conference was attended by more than 500 scientists from across the globe.
Prof Farooqi and Dr Basheer are working on the technology of biological-reactor-systems based on aerobic-granulation-systems for the last five years. These cost-effective systems are able to remove a large number of environmental toxicants.
While Dr Basheer received travel award from the organizers of the conference for attending the event, Prof Farooqi received travel grant from Department of Science and Technology, New Delhi.
Prof Farooqi has completed four major research projects sponsored by different agencies like Ministry of Environment and Forest, UGC, UPCST, UNICEF and supervised four PhD thesis. He has also established the Advanced Environmental Engineering Laboratory in the Department. Prof Farooqi is currently supervising four more PhD scholars.
Prof Farooqi has published 70 research papers in journals of International repute and Conferences. Dr Basheer has published 24 research papers in International journals and conferences. Prof Farooqi and Dr Basheer are working in a research group working on SBR systems based on granulation technology.
