The purpose of this bachelor`s thesis was to produce the xylanase enzyme by two different methods 1.solid state fermentation 2. Submerged fermentation. In the experimental part, two different substrate were experimented: the sugarcane bagasse was used for solid state fermentation and spent grains were used for submerged fermentation. A new species of fungi, streptomyces species strain-5027, produced extracellular xylanase under solid state fermentation i.e. 0.08unit per ml per gram of sugarcane bagasse as carbon source. The submerged fermentation was carried out on using spent grains such as rice , corn , rice husk, wheat, bajra, with including different legumes as a substrate for xylanase production by Bacillus Polymyxa strain -2539 i.e.0.0129gms per gram of substrate. The extracellular xylanase was isolated by ammonium sulfate (80%) precipitation and analysed using DNSA method. The enzyme was active on birchwood xylan and little active on p-nitrophenyl xylopyranoside but not on Avicel, CMC, cellobiose, and starch showing its absolute substrate specificity.

Textile industry has been condemned as one of the world’s worst offenders in terms of pollution because 10-15% of all the dyes used in the industry are lost within wastewater during processing. The presence of even very low concentrations of dyes in effluent is highly visible and degradation products of these textile dyes are often carcinogenic. Owing to the complex nature of synthetic dyes, conventional biological treatment methods are ineffective. Hence there exist needs for developing treatment techniques that can lead to the complete destruction of the dye molecules from waste stream. The current study focused to develop a new photocatalytic reactor using immobilized TiO2 capacity to decolourise and degrade textile industry effluent in an effective way. Nanocatalyst with spherical shape and homogeneous size has been synthesized through a chemical method using TiCl3 as precursor. Titanium dioxide (TiO2) nanoparticles were prepared by chemical precipitation method using magnetic stirrer at 500 rpm and ultrasonication at 150 watts and 20 KHz frequency as a mixing media. Prepared sample characterization is done using XRD, FTIR and SEM. Prepared TiO2 nanocatalyst is used for the decolorisation of dye solution using Photocatalytic process. The results of this study have shown that the degradation of different textile dyes was successfully carried out in laboratory scale photoreactor containing coated TiO2 as photo catalyst. Calcium alginate can be used as a green support for immobilizing TiO2 nanoparticles and can be used for developing a new environment friendly immobilization system for large scale water treatment.

It is difficult to detect cancer in its early stages because symptoms appear only in the advanced stages. More people die because of cancer such as brain,lung,breast,colon and prostate cancers. There is significant evidence indicating that the early detection of cancer will decrease mortality rate .There are many techniques to diagnose cancer, such as Chest Radiography (x-ray), computed Tomography (CT), Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI scan) and Sputum Cytology. In other words, most of these techniques are detecting the cancer in its advanced stages, where the patients’ chance of survival is very low.

Today the finest of papers are produced all over the world, but one dismaying fact is that millions of trees are fell in day to make paper. Also paper made by conventional method causes high pollution problem. Discarded paper is a major component of many landfill sites, accounting for about 35 percent by weight of municipal solid waste (before recycling), so the waste paper available in plenty can be recycled for production of handmade paper. Paper recycling is the process of turning waste paper into new paper products. The paper waste emanating from industries/various sources incorporating intensive use of paper can very conveniently be recycled for reuse in the parent industry, often saving costs. Energy consumption is reduced by recycling. In paper manufacturing the fibrous portion of the paper are reduced to pulp by chemical action followed by mechanical processes. For handmade paper making firstly we collect waste paper materials and sorting out on the basis of quality control. Soak the collected waste material in water for prior to pulping, for pulp production hydrapulper is used. Thoroughly mixed pulp should be poured on the handmade VAT. Various agents are added to stock to enhance the bonding between the fibers like starch, polysaccharide, resins etc. The pulp adhered to the cloth over which it is poured holds pulp and then keep for drying process. To achieve smoothness in paper press, the each paper is dried separately using iron box. Further it is cut the sheets to the required size and shape. Handmade paper products conserve resources and generate less pollution and it uses much less energy. It reduces total number of trees that are cut down to make paper and can be reduced overall demand of wood and it is more economical. It is eco-friendly and provides rural employment. Paper has reinvented the way we communicate, record history. It is portable, smaller, and thinner, and has triggered the inventions of new cleaning products, printing, and even foods. Carry bags, visiting cards, files, greeting cards, invitation covers, envelops, scribbling pad are the product produced by using handmade paper.

There are many places such as malls, tourist places , industrial areas, educational institutes and many more where people need to move from one place to another very frequently and it is not always possible to cover such distances just by walking. Also it consumes our valuable time and energy. Even we can’t rely totally on bicycles for this, also as there is an substantial increase in human population , it led to the scarcity of resources and also it has cause less space for vehicles to move freely on roads and insufficient space for parking. The vehicles which are used now-a-days produce more smoke and sound which is proven to be hazardous.This project is about the Smart human transporter; a two wheeled, self-balancing electric vehicle which imitates the walking principle and human balance. It consists of four major elements: the wheel and motor assembly, the sensor system, the circuit board and the operator control system. We aim at producing a fully-operational Smart vehicle with a compact design which caters for better shock absorption on terrains and includes an improved control system. The rider drives the vehicle by standing on the platform and leaning in the direction to move. The handlebar also serves as steering control of the vehicle. It balances by detecting the tilt angle using an accelerometer and gyroscope, calculating the corrective action using a PID controller implemented on a microcontroller to move forward or backwards automatically to regain its balance. By the end of the project we aim to develop a fully operational Smart vehicle. The dynamics of the vehicle is similar to the classical control problem of an inverted pendulum, which means that it is unstable and prone to tip over. This is prevented by electronics sensing the pitch angle and its time derivative, controlling the motors to keep the vehicle balancing.

This system aims to the actuation of the robotic car using the brain waves and it is a trial which is meant for physically challenged persons with neuromuscular disabilities. Whenever a person gazes towards any object a stimulus is generated in the Visual Cortex Area of the Human Brain. This stimulus is present at the scalp of the forehead. This stimulus is called as Visually Evoked Potential. The generated stimulus will be certain potential and it also varies with the flicker which consistently changes up to certain frequencies for various thinking modes and capabilities of a Human Being. This potential is present at the occipital reason of the forehead and the ground is at the earlobe. This potential is usually captured by an EEG capturing mind wave headset which is Neurosky mindwave mobile headset and the signal is transmitted to the robotic car using the Bluetooth module and this signal is given to the robotic car to actuate. The system design is a simple approach which has been implemented so far with the help of certain accessories and thus it’s an approach to make it more cost effective and useful for further analysis.
