Poste :

 This thesis proposal aims to explore the development and effectiveness of fertilizer anti-dust systems utilizing widely available vegetable oils as a sustainable solution. Dust emissions from fertilizers during handling and transportation contribute to air pollution and pose risks to human health and the environment. The objective of this research is to investigate the potential of vegetable oils as an environmentally friendly and cost-effective anti-dust agent for fertilizer products. The proposed thesis investigation will involve an in-depth analysis of various oil types to determine their suitability as anti-dust agents. Physical and chemical properties, such as viscosity, density, and composition, will be evaluated to understand their dust suppression capabilities. The experiments will involve simulating real-life conditions and measuring dust particle size distribution, airborne dust concentration, and dust settling rate. To optimize the anti-dust system, the research will also explore potential synergies with other additives or materials, such as surfactants or binders, to enhance dust suppression efficiency. Furthermore, this study aims to assess and enhance the physico-chemical properties of vegetable oils for effective fertilizer dust suppression. Key properties such as density, adhesion and binding, emulsification, crosslinking, and film formation will be evaluated through a series of chemical modifications. These modifications will be performed to optimize the oils' ability to effectively suppress dust emissions from fertilizers. The compatibility and stability of oil-based anti-dust systems with different fertilizer formulations will be evaluated to ensure their long-term effectiveness.

Research duties:

We are seeking a highly motivated student who will play a pivotal role in this ambitious research project. The student will be responsible for designing, planning, and executing experiments. A comprehensive literature search will be conducted to gather relevant knowledge and stay informed about the latest research in the field.
