Electrochemical Technology in Pollution Control

By Prof. J. R. Mudakavi   |   IISc Bangalore
Electroanalytical techniques have assumed great importance in pollution monitoring of chemical species in the last 20 years. Electrochemical sensors including ion selective electrodes are employed to detect the pollution levels in all public spaces. They also find extensive applications in medical diagnosis, industrial process monitoring, communication industry etc. Fuel cells and battery technology are the energy sources of the future. Industrial wastes generated from electrochemical processes are one of the most hazardous wastes which need to be effectively managed. The course aims to introduce the fundamental principles of electrochemistry for routine and non-routine analysis, electrochemical processes used in the industry, battery and fuel cell technologies and recent advances in hazardous electrochemical waste management including concepts of zero liquid discharge.
