The Faculty of Engineering and Built Environment held their 2012 Three Minute Thesis heats on the 29th of May.

26 research higher degree students from across the Faculty participated in the event, which required the competitors to explain their research to a non-specialist audience in only three minutes.

Chemical engineering candidate Sazal Kumar Kundu received second place for his presentation 'Conversion of flurocarbons in a non-thermal plasma using a cylindrical double dielectric barrier discharge reactor.'

Chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) and Halons, commonly known as fluorocarbons, were used for more than 50 years and they have damaged our ozone layer severely. Ozone layer filters ultraviolet ray from sunlight. CFCs and Halons are now banned by the Montreal Protocol; however, they are stockpiled.

In his research, Sazal have employed a dielectric barrier discharge plasma reactor and is converting fluorocarbons to fluoropolymers. Fluoropolymers are in general resistant to many chemicals. Therefore, the generated fluoropolymers are expected to be used in various purposes.
