Welcome to Bioprocess & Bioenergy Laboratory

The laboratory focus on developing scientific process and technologies to produce various economically important products such as enzymes, metabolites and biofuels. The Laboratory works broadly on three major areas :

1. Study of microbial diversity of various ecological niches.

2. Bioprocess development for production of biotechnologically importants products.

3. Development of efficient biomass pretreatment system for cost effective production of bioethanol and other value           added products.

Bioprocess and bioenergy laboratory has collaboration with various national/international research organizations.    The laboratory has several ongoing projects funded with grants from DBT.

  • Group Leader
