Suryawanshi graduated in Petrochemical Engineering from Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar Technological University, Lonere in the year 2012. Currently, she is pursuing doctoral research under the guidance of Dr. Vinay Bhandari at Chemical Engineering and Process Development Division. Her doctoral work is mainly focused on “Studies in sulfur removal processes for transportation fuels”.

Suryawanshi developed the technology for ‘Non-Catalytic deep desulfurization process using hydrodynamic cavitation’ at CSIR-NCL which was selected for this award. This technology is a novel low-cost process for sulfur removal from fuels (diesel, gasoline/petrol, kerosene) and organics. Sources in NCL said that it is easy to operate having mild operating conditions and leads to complete sulfur removal without using any chemicals and catalysts.

They said that the technology has wide scope in refineries and chemical industries to reduce air pollution. Earlier, Suryawanshi had received SERB-IGCW 2017 award at the ‘Industrial Green Chemistry World 2017’ conference. SRISTI (Society for Research and Initiatives for Sustainable Technologies and Institutions) has established three national awards with BIRAC (Biotechnology Industry Research Assistance Council) for innovative student projects in engineering, biotechnology, agriculture, pharmacy, material science and other applied technological domains. The awards were given to 21 young researchers for innovations related to 42 categories this year.
