Dr. Sonil Nanda is a Research Associate in the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering at the University of Saskatchewan, Canada. He earned his Ph.D. degree in Biology from York University, Toronto, Canada; M.Sc. degree in Applied Microbiology from Vellore Institute of Technology (VIT University), Tamil Nadu, India; and B.Sc. degree in Microbiology from Orissa University of Agriculture and Technology, Bhubaneshwar, India. Dr. Nanda’s research areas are related to the production of advanced biofuels and biochemicals through thermochemical and biological conversion technologies such as gasification, pyrolysis, liquefaction, torrefaction, carbonization, reforming and fermentation. He has expertise in hydrothermal gasification of a wide variety of organic wastes and biomass including agricultural and forestry residues, industrial effluents, municipal solid wastes, food wastes, cattle manure, sewage sludge, scrap tires and rubber to produce hydrogen fuel. His parallel interests are also in the generation of hydrothermal flames for the treatment of hazardous wastes, agronomic applications of biochar, phytoremediation of heavy metal contaminated soils, as well as carbon capture and sequestration. He is the Editor of several books such as “Fuel Processing and Energy Utilization” (CRC Press), “Recent Advancements in Biofuels and Bioenergy Utilization” (Springer Nature), “Biorefinery of Alternative Resources: Targeting Green Fuels and Platform Chemicals” (Springer Nature) and “Biotechnology for Sustainable Energy and Products” (IK International Publishing House Pvt. Ltd.), to name a few.
