Young leaders working under 'SBI Youth for India' felicitated 3.11.2017 DNA: India
Thirteen months in remote villages of different states, living amongst strangers, working on projects that will benefit the community at large, taught 53 youngsters the meaning of selfless service. These young boys and girls were part of a 13-month long programme called SBI Youth For India, devised to bridge the rural-urban divide, using the young blood as a catalyst. These youths were felicitated for different projects they worked upon during the fellowship by the State Bank of India at SBI Academy here on Thursday. From women empowerment, environment conservation, watershed development, female reproduction health, the project was "life-altering" according to the youths. 22-year-old Jaswanth Dadi, an engineering graduate remembers how a visit to Bandgaun, a village in Ajmer district of Rajasthan, made him realise the significance of water. As he went around talking to villagers, each one came up with one common woe - water scarcity. Making matters worse was the huge quantity of fluoride in it that made ...

IIT-Hyd researchers remove fluoride from water using jamun seeds 30.10.2017 Deccan Herald - National
In a path-breaking achievement, researchers from the Indian Institute of Technology- Hyderabad have developed an unconventional material to remove fluoride from drinking water. Using jamun seed-based activated carbon, the researchers demonstrated that they can bring down fluoride to levels considered acceptable by the World Health Organisation. The findings were published recently in the Journal of Environmental Chemical Engineering. A team led by Prof Chandra Shekhar Sharma, assistant professor, Department of Chemical Engineering, IIT-Hyderabad, used the jamun seed-based activated carbon for fluoride removal studies. Jamun seed powder was converted to highly porous carbon material by chemical treatment followed by processing at higher temperatures to improve its efficiency. Initially, trials were carried out with the obtained material on fluoride solutions prepared in the laboratory. Later they were tested on actual groundwater samples collected from Nalgonda district, Telangana, which is one of the ...

IIT-H team discovers way to remove flouride from water using Jamun seeds 26.10.2017 deccanherald.com
Jamun, one of the most commonly available fruits in India, may soon help serve the purpose of removing fluoride from groundwater sources if an IIT-Hyderabad study has its way. A research team, comprising of RamyaAraga, ShantanuSoni and Chandra S.Sharma, has discovered a way to turn the seeds of the Jamun (Syzygium cumini) into a carbon filter capable of significantly reducing fluoride levels in groundwater sources. The paper, published in the Journal of Environmental Chemical Engineering , details how the team came across the solution. The team converted the seeds into an activated carbon source by means of a process called KOH treating and then subjecting the seeds pyrolysis (decomposing by subjecting objects to extreme heat) at 900 degrees Celsius, producing the activated carbon. The team then segregated the filter into batches, which were tested with both laboratory-prepared fluoride water and groundwater sourced from Nalgonda, Telangana, which has some of the worst instances of fluoride concentration ...
