Thermochemical & biochemical processing of lignocellulosic biomass for "Fuel and Feed" production.
Carbohydrate based biopolymers: Synthesis, Organization, and their Deconstruction.
CAZyme or Carbohydrate Active enZyme Engineering.
3GEL or Glycans, Glycoconjugates, and Glycan-Active Enzymes Engineering Laboratory at Rutgers University is led by Principal Investigator Dr. Shishir Chundawat. 3GEL research interests are guided by the principles of sustainable engineering, that facilitate conversion of raw materials into value-added products. Nature is an ideal ‘sustaineer’ (sustainable+engineer) that provides inspiration and solutions to the modern-day engineer’s dilemma. We are interested in leveraging the scientific and engineering principles underlying the sustainable utilization of renewable glycans or carbohydrates for energy, food, health and advanced materials related applications.
