We are amazed by how our students never fail to lead by example and inspire others to achieve milestones throughout their journey.

Saurabh Singh, a student of Biotechnology at Lovely Professional University was one of the only 4 Indians among 1000 people to present his project work at the 27th European Biomass Conference and Exhibition held in Lisbon, Portugal.

Saurabh is working on microbial co-culture (use of microorganism such as bacteria, fungus), considered as a producer of bioethanol. Though India is at a nascent stage when it comes to using bioethanol as a fuel, it can prove to be a beneficial idea of making effective use of bio-waste.

It was his love for innovation in the field of the biomass and bio-energy that prompted him to opt for the Biotechnology programme. During his recent visit to Lisbon for 27th European Biomass Conference and Exhibition’ (EUBCE), he realised the need to intensify research to utilise fruit waste material for the production of bioethanol.
