A group of researchers at IIT-Kharagpur, led by Prof. Sandeep Kulkarni-Associate Professor, Deysarkar Centre of Excellence in Petroleum Engineering, have developed large synthetic molecules that can help with the extraction of oil or gas from underground wells. This project was sponsored by the Distinguished Alumnus/na couple of Asoke Deysarkar ('71) and Ruma Acharya ('73). Asoke serves as the current IITKGP Foundation US Vice President and the IIT-Kharagpur Representative on the PanIIT USA Board, in addition to both he and Ruma being IITKGP Foundation US Board Trustees. Asoke and Ruma established the "Asoke Deysarkar and Ruma Acharya Centre of Excellence in Petroleum Engineering (ADRACEPE)" to transform the 21st Century Energy Scenario through Sustainable Development, Leadership, and Energy.
Congratulations to all involved in this ground-breaking project!
