Hydrodynamic cavitation using vortex diode: An efficient approach for elimination of pathogenic bacteria from water.
A cavitation model using per pass disinfection was developed that can provide meaningful physical description of the disinfection process as against the conventional first order reaction rate model and provide meaningful insight into cavitation process based on hydrodynamic cavitation for the destruction of both gram-negative and gram-positive bacteria from various water sources, including industrial wastewaters.

Exploring sustainable technique on natural dye extraction from native plants for textile: identification of colourants, colourimetric analysis of dyed yarns and their antimicrobial evaluation
Abstract Use of natural dyes in textile colouration is gaining popularity all over the world during the last decade. The current study deals with solvent extraction of natural dyes from two plantExpand
Anoxic–aerobic SBR system for nitrate, phosphate and COD removal from high-strength wastewater and diversity study of microbial communities
Low specific denitrification rate values in comparison to other heterotrophs, also supported enrichment of denitrifying phosphate accumulating organisms (DNPAOs) in the anoxic–aerobic sequencing batch reactor. Expand
Exploiting functionalities of biomass in nanocomposite development: application in dye removal and disinfection along with process intensification
A green synthesis of multifunctional superparamagnetic nanocomposites using the whole unripened fruit of Cassia fistula (Golden shower) with potential for removal of both cationic and anionic dyesExpand
Elucidating efficacy of biomass derived nanocomposites in water and wastewater treatment.
The biomass derived nanocomposite exhibit excellent pollutant removal and disinfection properties, even at very low nanoparticle content; octanol based material indicating ∼5 times lowered cost, while the Aloe vera based bionanocomposites have potential for cost reduction to the extent of 10 times as compared to only magnetite nanoparticles, thereby highlighting techno-economical alternative in water and wastewater treatment.

Evaluation of Simultaneous Nutrient and COD Removal with Polyhydroxybutyrate (PHB) Accumulation Using Mixed Microbial Consortia under Anoxic Condition and Their Bioinformatics Analysis
It was apparent that in spite of a high carbon load, maximum COD and nutrient removal can be maintained, with adequate nitrate-N availability. Expand
Treatment of industrial effluents and assessment of their impact on the structure and function of microbial diversity in a unique Anoxic-Aerobic sequential batch reactor (AnASBR).
The new AnASBR was proved to be an efficient alternative system that is energy efficient with higher ease of operation for the treatment of different industrial effluents without fail. Expand
Role of Microorganisms in Emission of Nitrous Oxide and Methane in Pulse Cultivated Soil Under Laboratory Incubation Condition
Soil from a pulse cultivated farmers land of Odisha, India, have been subjected to incubation studies for 40 consecutive days, to establish the impact of various nitrogenous fertilizers and waterExpand
Role of cationic and anionic surfactants in textile dyeing with natural dyes extracted from waste plant materials and their potential antimicrobial properties
Abstract In the last few years, an increasing interest has been developed to the potential use of plant waste as raw material to produce natural dye for dyeing textiles due to environmental aspects.Expand
UV reflectance attributed direct correlation to colour strength and absorbance of natural dyed yarn with respect to mordant use and their potential antimicrobial efficacy
In this study, an attempt has made to investigate the impact of UV reflectance of un-dyed and dyed cotton yarn on the quantity of natural dyes absorbed by the fibre and observed its colour intensity.Expand
