Seminar on ‘Emerging Nano-materials for Sustainable Energy Efficiency Applications’

The utilization of nano-materials in technologies for renewable energy and sustainability applications continues to represent an important area of academic and commercial research. There are numerous mechanisms by which the integration of nano-materials can improve device performance. These include, for example, facilitation of increased harvesting and conversion efficiencies, simplified and rapid manufacturing processes for novel device architectures and improved energy storage properties. The Department of Textile Engineering of World University of Bangladesh has organized a seminar on “Emerging Nano-materials for Sustainable Energy Efficiency Applications” on February 04, 2020. The key note Speaker was Dr. Arifutzzaman Rahat, Research Fellow, Research Center for Nano Materials and Energy Technology (RCNMET), School of Science and Technology, Sunway University (SU), Malaysia. Prof. Dr. Abdul Mannan Choudhury, honorable vice-chancellor, adorned the chair of chief guest whereas Dr. SM Shirazi, Direcror, IQAC, WUB and Md. Mizanur Rahman, Additional Director, IQAC, WUB were present as special guests. Md. Mostafizur Rahman, Head of the Department of Textile Engineering, presided over the session.

The keynote speaker Mr. Rahat mainly emphasized on the application of nano-material in perspective of sustainability in our textile sector; he pin pointed some crucial factors which have an immense effect in bringing value addition by developing application of nano-material. Other speakers opined that there is no alternative to sustainable approach of all our activities as we are passing through the Industrial 4.0 revolution.
