It is the delight of the READ Group to
highlight the successful Professorial lecture of Prof. Bassim H. Hameed. The lecture took place on 15th June 2011 at Engineering Campus of USM, Nibong Tebal, Penang, Malaysia.
The title of the lecture was “Agro-Activated Carbons: low-cost, renewable and sustainable for clean environment”. Prof. Bassim, in his Lecture dwelt much on the conversion of waste to useful material. The slogan of the lecture is anchored on “Don’t Waste Waste”. Any waste can be transformed into a potentially useful material.
In this delight, Prof. Bassim did justice to his lecture by taking his audience through the process by which various waste can be converted to activated carbon, a material which is very effective
in the removal of pollutants from wastewater and air. A clip showing
how our river waters are polluted was shown which a motivating factor to finding materials, such as activated carbon and other adsorbent which can be used in the treatment of water. Read more...

Moses Aderemi Olutoye won the best thesis of PhD award (Engineering) 2012
Moses Aderemi Olutoye won the best thesis of PhD award (Engineering) University of Science Malaysia 2012. The thesis titled “synthesis, characterization and activity of mixed oxide (Mg, Zn, al) catalysts for transesterification of waste cooking palm oil, edible and non-edible oils”, supervised by Professor Dr. Bassim H. Hameed. The thesis was successful completed in 36 months and his work has already led to seven articles published in ISI-indexed journals, including Applied Catalysis A: General(Impact Factor 2011: 3.903),
Fuel Processing Technology (Impact Factor 2011: 2.945) and Bioresource Technology (Impact Factor 2011: 4.980). Congratulations Moses on your achievements.
