In­dus­trial waste­water treat­ment is an ex­tremely chal­leng­ing task, espe­cially for re­frac­tory pol­lu­tants that are dif­fi­cult to re­move/ de­grade us­ing con­ven­tional meth­ods of treat­ment. This ar­ti­cle elab­o­rates on hy­brid tech­nolo­gies, that are most rel­e­vant in such cases, as they not only en­hance the ef­fi­ciency of the ex­ist­ing pro­cesses, but also help in re­duc­ing the over­all cost of treat­ment.

Dr. Vi­nay Bhan­dari is Senior Prin­ci­pal Sci­en­tist in the Chem­i­cal En­gi­neer­ing & Process De­vel­op­ment Di­vi­sion of CSIRNa­tional Chem­i­cal Lab­o­ra­tory, Pune. He has more than 26 years of re­search ex­pe­ri­ence apart from 2 years of in­dus­trial ex­pe­ri­ence. He also worked as Vis­it­ing Fac­ulty in Ja­pan and South Korea. He has more than 180 pub­li­ca­tions/pre­sen­ta­tions, au­thored 1 book and filed 6 patents (2 in­ter­na­tional patents granted). His re­search in­ter­ests in­clude In­dus­trial waste­water treat­ment, Sep­a­ra­tion Pro­cesses, Biotech­nol­ogy and Nan­otech­nol­ogy.

Dr. Kshama Bala­pure is Re­search As­so­ci­ate with CSIR-Na­tional Chem­i­cal Lab­o­ra­tory, Pune. She worked as As­sis­tant Pro­fes­sor in Gu­jarat Vidyap­ith, Ahmed­abad, Gu­jarat. Dr. Kshama has ex­per­tise in bi­o­log­i­cal waste­water treat­ment and has pub­lished 5 re­search pa­pers in re­puted in­ter­na­tional jour­nals.

Dr. Ta­nur Sinha is Na­tional Post Doc­toral Fel­low with CSIR-Na­tional Chem­i­cal

Lab­o­ra­tory, Pune. She also worked at In­dian In­sti­tute Of Tech­nol­ogy, Bom­bay and In­dian In­sti­tute of Tech­nol­ogy Guwa­hati. Dr. Sinha has ex­per­tise in pho­to­catal­y­sis and nano­ma­te­ri­als, has pub­lished 18 re­search ar­ti­cles in re­puted in­ter­na­tional jour­nals and has au­thored one book.
