Involved in a number of important projects under INNOWA. INNOWA (Innovative Water Treatment) is an EU (European Union) project in collaboration with the following renowned universities:

Ø      Shah Jalal University of Science & Technology, Bangladesh

Ø      University of Applied Sciences, Karlsruhe, Germany

Ø      Institute on Membrane Technology at the University of Calabria, Italy

Ø      Jiangsu Polytechnic University, P.R. China


The performed projects in which I was involved as a team member for designings, constructions, and testings under the supervision of the local Task Leader Prof. Dr. Aktarul Islam [Ref. 1] are as follows:

  1. Design, Construction & Simulation of Membrane Bioreactor (MBR) under             EU-Project, INNOWA.


  1. Design, Construction & Simulation of SUST-Bioreactor (SBR) for Industrial waste water treatment.


  1. Design, Construction & Simulation of SUST- Bioreactor (SBR) for  Laundry  water treatment.

From 2003 to still now Involved with the following research & development activities as an active member of a research group (Harbinger Team) who are working under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Aktarul Islam:


A. Hybrid Distillation Column: Using the concept of tray column and packed column, a sophisticated high performance hybrid distillation unit was designed and constructed with locally available raw materials. This unit is now being applied for efficient separation in other experiments in the CEP labs in SUST.


B. Development of the Method of Concentration Measurement using Capillary Action: A novel quick and cost-effective method with light instruments for determining the concentrations of organic solutions.


C. INNOWA Sintered Clay Filter: For ground, surface (including arsenic & iron removal), and municipal water treatment for potable and industrial purposes:

The aim of this project is to build a hybrid technology to compete with membrane technology in water treatment, regarding cost and performance. A complete unit was designed, constructed step by step, tested for performance and for further enhancements.


D. INNOWA Membrane Bio Reactor (MBR): An electronically automated membrane bio reactor for the purpose of treating textile waste water was constructed based on an imported membrane module.

For details visit: www.innowa.org


E: INNOWA Double Layer Membrane For Ultra filtration


F: Foaming Separation Technique for Surfactant Solutions: The driving force of this separation is that surfactants prefer to accumulate to the free surfaces rather than to stay in the bulk with the solvent water.


G: Composition Optimization of Clay Filter.
