Heterogeneous Catalysis, CO2 hydrogenation to transportation fuels ,Methanol synthesis , Fischer–Tropsch synthesis
Dr Khangale’s research focuses on heterogeneous catalysis for alternative fuel, in particular Fischer-Tropsch synthesis. Fischer-Tropsch synthesis is a process of producing low-sulphur fuel from a mixture of CO and H2 (commonly known as syngas). His current research is looking at the hydrogenation of CO2 to produce liquid fuel (modified Fischer-Tropsch process) as opposed to CO which is used in a traditional Fischer-Tropsch process.
