      The R&D activities carried / being carried out in this lab includes the following sub areas:

  1. Water Quality Profile / Water Quality Assessment:
    Large number of streams and rivers were taken for determining / assessing the water quality profile / water quality trends in order to know the extent of pollution compared to historical period and to identify and quantity the major stressors responsible for such a state. The outcome/ results help in finding and implementing the conservation measures to restore the water quality of the water bodies so that water can be suitably utilized for desired usages. There is, therefore, urgent needs to map all rivers lakes qualitatively and to take corrective measures to restore their health.

  2. Ecological Health Assessment of Rivers & Lakes:
    The objective of the ecological health assessment of water bodies has been to find out the suitability of a water body to support the life present there. These studies are based on the cumulative index assessment involving water quality index, trophic state index, biotic index based on macro-invertebrates available and biodiversity based on the screening of the riparian vegetation. The results are found very useful for restoring the ecological health to sustain or to support life in the water bodies that can provide number of services to human.

  3. The Green House Gas (GHG) Potential Assessment from MSW:
    Large piles of MSW is found in every city in India at the outscript of the cities in open. This open dumping of MSW is releasing significant quantity of GHGs like CH4, CO2, N2O etc. to the atmosphere, thereby, enhancing the global warming phenomena, which leads to the climate changes, the effect of which are seen in day to day life in terms of changes in the weather patterns/ ranges/ snow fall etc. Further, these open dumping is polluting the air / ground water resources significantly. The aim of the GHG emission potential assessment is to compute the GHG available throughout the course of degradation period. These gases can be recovered, if this waste is put to proper collection, segregation and conversion to useful energy/ by-products, as soon as, it is generated in the households.
    Three land fill sites in Delhi, one in Hyderabad and one in Kanpur has already been studied for their potential for GHG emissions and corrective measures are also suggested.

  4. Biomonitoring of Rivers & Streams using Macroinvertebrates:
    A multi-national R&D project entitled "Development of an Assessment System to Evaluate the Ecological Status of Rivers in the Hindu Kush-Himalayan Region" was undertaken involving 4 European and 5 Asian countries including India (with funding from European Commission) at a cost of € 1.02 million to develop methodology based on macroinvertebrates sampling, characterisation and identification in HKH region. The project was completed between 2005-2008 and the results of the study have led to the development of a biotic index under the name “HKH Bios” which can be used to assess the water quality as well as ecological health of the streams. In India, the Kosi river in Uttarakhand having stretch of about 200 kms from Almora (UK) to Distt. Rampur (UP) was selected and water quality profile based on biotic index has been developed for use of water managers / policy / decision makers.

  5. GHG Emissions from Hydropower Reservoirs:
    Till recently, the hydropower reservoir were considered as emission free and environment friendly but some studies in Europe have found them to be the significant emitters of GHGs to the atmosphere, thereby, causing more global warming and climate change. These gases have been found to be produced as a results of biodegradation of organic matter (which is transported from the catchment to the reservoirs) under different condition prevailing at the bottom.
    R&D has been carried out on Tehri reservoir and Kotli Bhel Stage-I & II hydropower reservoir to assess the GHG emission potential by experimental approach as well as by studying the potential of tree plantations available in the catchment to contribute the differentially degradable organic matter. GHG Risk assessment tool has also been applied to assess the extent of risk of GHG emissions so that necessary mitigation may be or may not be required. Since the impoundment has been more than 6 years, these reservoirs are found risk free from global warming point of view.

  6. Miscellaneous Areas:
    Development of hybrid and integrated renewable energy systems: Significant R&D has been carried out on modelling and optimisation of hybrid energy and integrated renewable energy systems for electrification of remote areas in off-grid mode. In such system, depending on whether the demand is more or equal to the resources available, the incorporation of diesel-generator set or 100% renewable energy sources available in the selected areas can be used to supply the power. The studies on selection of despatch strategy together with design of power supply network as well as sensitivity and error analysis has also been carried out. The studies for about 6 remote areas in Uttarakhand have so far been completed.
    Besides, the state-of-the art equipment / instrumental facilities are available to rigorously train our M.Tech as well as research scholars.
