Center for testing Biodiesels (CTB) was established in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, S.R.K.R. Engineering College majorly funded by MODROB’s. This center is going to play a vital role and have a wide range of applications in respect of alternative fuels and their testing & emission analysis. This approach and use are primarily interdisciplinary in nature and require the expertise from engineering and science disciplines. Government of India has recently in June 2018 announced new policy on Biofuels and an indicative target of 20% blending of ethanol in petrol and 5% blending of biodiesel in diesel is proposed by 2030. Department has taken significant efforts in this direction with major focus on 2nd generation biofuels.
Center for testing Biodiesels (CTB) has been promoting research in Biofuel areas through Centre of Excellence having numerous testing facilities. This center will create a very good platform to connect students and researchers who are doing excellent work in the field of alternative fuels.
The Centre plans to expand its areas of research in the field of alternative fuels to novel areas to enhance the exhaust characteristics of biodiesels and make them more affordable to the public in all aspects. We will extend its area in the field of bio diesel production by doing extensive interdisciplinary research by collaborating with other departments.
