JICA Group from Japan visited CES-NUST on 28th September 2012. The delegation was warmly welcomed and received at SCME by the Principal / Director CES. The delegation was briefed on the ongoing projects being undertaken by CES. Some new projects of common interest were also discussed to explore the possibilities of mutual collaboration.
The delegation was keen to learn the prospects and utility of the hydrogen injection kit designed for both gasoline and diesel engines. The hydrogen injection kit has been found to improve the engine efficiency by 20 % which can be optimized upto 40 % by design modification and subsequent validation.
The delegation also visited the research facility associated with Bio-Diesel Production and modified oil extraction technique with very high efficiency. The algae oil with supercritical fluid extraction and the flash point of Bio-Diesel as per the EU standards were also demonstrated during the visit.
JICA Group intends installing solar panels at NUST Campus with a potential of approximately 1 MW. To pursue this project the delegation also visited the campus. The requisite data for conducting the project was subsequently shared with JICA.
