New Delhi: Vikram Vishal, a 31-year-old assistant professor in the Earth Sciences department of the institute, got the Young Scientist Award from the Indian National Science Academy, the nation’ peak logical society, for the year 2017.

The logical model can end up being a long haul answer for carbon dioxide emissions in India. The model includes catching the carbon dioxide and injecting them in hard shakes inside the subsurface of our planet.

The award involves a money prize of Rs 25,000 and a bronze medal, a discharge from the IIT-Bombay said.

Vishal is currently working on research “which attempts to reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions and their environmental impact by capturing the natural gases”, it said.

His research “looks at capturing the carbon dioxide released when coal is burnt or created as a by-product in other industries and injecting it back into the rock deep underground so that it is not released into the atmosphere,” the release added.

On account of the boundless geological diversity, India offers sufficient open doors for the capacity of carbon dioxide, and infusion of carbon dioxide will likewise prompt “enhanced recovery of methane to partly meet our growing energy demands”, Vishal was quoted as saying in the release.

“The analogy comes from the natural gases that remain trapped in rocks for millions of years. If we can successfully inject the emissions into the rocks, they will remain there for several thousand years,” said Vishal.

“Institutes also need to focus on certain research areas based on the contemporary needs of the world. We should also compare our institutes with the best practices in universities abroad to improve the quality of research,” said Vishal.

Vishal has obtained his engineering degree from Presidency College in Kolkata and did a masters course at IIT-B.
