About CGPL / Indian Institute of Science

From their website:

Combustion, Gasification and Propulsion Laboratory is a part of the Department of Aerospace Engineering, at the Indian Institute of Science. The work on biomass gasification was started in 1982 in a small way in the main department and got shifted to the current premises (a small room at the northern end of the laboratory) in 1984.

Always seeking more efficient ways of harnessing energy through gasification process, CGPL has also developed patented technologies, for removal of hydrogen sulfide from biogas (ISET Process), Precipitated silica from rice husk ash (IPSIT Process), Efficient biomass stoves. Apart from these technologies CGPL has also been involved in techniques for charcoal production, activated carbon. It has been striving to address the energy requirements of biomass-based industries and offer turnkey solutions. A run down through these pages should enlighten you more about these.

One of the principal features of the work at the laboratory has been a pursuit of a combination of analytical, computational, modeling and experimental studies on problems of topical interest to India but meaningful in the international arena. The laboratory has had the tradition of participation in International Combustion symposia where the acceptance criteria for presentation are more rigorous than journal publication. The pursuit of rigorous work in a frontier area for international relevance and development of Technologies relevant to developing countries have occurred with no conflict over the last three decades.
