Background and activities
Hi, I am Koteswara Rao Putta from India. I completed my B.Tech in chemical engineering from Sri Venkateswara University College of Engineering, Tirupati,Andhra Pradesh, India in 2007 and Masters in Indian Institute Of Technology Kanpur, Kanpur, India in 2009. After finishing my masters worked as Project Associate and Senior Project Associate til August 2010 in IIT Kanpur.
Later joined Haldor Topsøe, Process Lisencing and Catalyst manufacturing company in 2010 September and worked as Process engineer in SynGas Technology division on various projects in Hydrogen Technology and as project proposals engineer for Methanol technology for various clients all over the world. Worked in close collaboration with calatyst group and New technologies division for testing new kinetics and process configurations in Methanol Technology. After working for 2 years in process design company, I joined NTNU as Research Scholar in Chemical engineering department.
Presently working on development of complete simulation model ( Reaction Kinetics, Combined Heat and Mass Transfer & Thermodynamics) for Carbon capture process using solvents.
Skills set: Matlab, Ansys Fluent, COMSOL Multiphysics and Aspen Hysys.
