Training on Advances in Applications of Nanotechnology

About the Training Programme Course

Nanotechnology deals with the manipulation of atoms, molecules, or molecular clusters to create functional materials and devices with enhanced & desirable properties. The first use of the concept of 'nanotechnology' was in "There's Plenty of Room at the Bottom", a talk given by physicist Richard Feynman in 1959. Nanotechnology, no longer remain a theoretical science rather it has gained the status of applied science being used in multidisciplinary field. Agriculture and Food Production are no exception to it. This has realized the potential of nanotechnology in each stage starting from crop production to consumption. In India, Department of Science and Technology (DST) has initiated the Nano-Mission to foster the research activities in this field. Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR) in collaboration with state agricultural universities has initiated Consortium Research Project (CRP) on Nanotechnology to boost the research in the field of nanotechnology and its application in agriculture. ICAR-CIRCOT has done pioneering work in the field of nanotechnology and has developed more tahn a decade of experience and expertise in synthesis & characterization of nanomaterials and its application in textile finishing development of nanocomposites etc. In 2015, ICAR-CIRCOT has established India’s First Nanocellulose Pilot Plant. With this background, advanced trainings are being arranged to share the knowledge with diverse stakeholders. This training module on 'Advances in Applications of Nanotechnology' is 14th in the series, designed to impart basic and advanced knowledge of nanotechnology and its applications.

Training on Value Addition to Cottonseed

About the Training Programme Course

Cotton being the major textile fibre in India, is an important cash crop. We are now the largest cotton producer in the world. Fibres however constitute only one third of the weight of the harvested seed cotton and the remaining two third is constituted by the seed. At current production levels, about 11 milion tonnes cottonseed is produced in our country. Cottonseed contains some very short fibres known as linters and is rich in oil and protein. It therefore is a valuable resource but its potential has not yet been fully realized. Linters, like cotton fibres are a very pure source of cellulose and have numerous applications in preparation of high value cellulose derivatives, regenerated cellulose fibres and high quality pulp and paper. But most of the cottonseed is currently being crushed directly without removing linters and hulls which reduces oil recovery and also prevents usage of resulting meal for high end applications such as poultry and fish feed due to high content of fibres and low protein content. Scientific processing of cottonseed results in realization of full value of cottonseed and results in almost complete recovery of oil and other valuable products such as linters, hulls and de-oiled high protein cottonseed meal. The products thus obtained can be further value added to get higher economic benefit. This training programme aims to create awareness among the participants about the benefits of scientific processing of cottonseed and various technologies developed at CIRCOT for value addition of various products obtained from cottonseed

Objective

  • To impart knowledge about scientific processing of cottonseed and its benefits
  • To teach the technologies for value addition to cottonseed
  • To impart skill on various analytical methods for analysis of cottonseed

Course Content  

  • Scientific processing and value addition to cottonseed
  • Prospects of cottonseed oil
  • Value addition to cottonseed by fermentation technology
  • Diversified uses of cotton linters
  • Value added products from linters- nanocellulose, pulp and paper
  • Utilization of cottonseed for feed and food purposes
  • Demonstrations and hands-on training on cottonseed and meal analysis
