Dr. Kashif Rasool Received Green Talents Award
Dr. Kashif Rasool's research seeks to provide a solution for advanced sustainable and economical water treatment. The jury was particularly encouraged by the potential of Kashif’s research to deal with one of the world’s most pressing concerns: water security. Reclaiming water for reuse applications instead of using freshwater supplies is currently considered globally as the most critical element of sustainable water management. Kashif already has a pending patent application, thus demonstrating the groundbreaking promise of his research. The 33 years old Pakistani young scientist’s research focus is in environmental and energy engineering/biological wastewater treatment in aerobic/anaerobic processes. Dr. Kashif Rasool is taking on two of the world’s most pressing environmental concerns; water contamination and water security. He is developing innovative methods for extracting contaminants from industrial wastewater so that it can be safely and sustainably returned to the freshwater supply. Industries involved in the production of domestic products are producing more and more pollutants. Many of these pollutants, such as nutrients, heavy metals, and dyes, end up in the water supply, thus raising the prospect of damage to human health. Kashif’s research seeks to provide a solution for advanced sustainable and economical water treatment. He is focusing on the biological removal of organics, heavy metals, nutrients and emerging micro-pollutants from a variety of wastewater streams, coupled with renewable bio-energy production.
