Department of Oils Technology

Dr. G. A. Usmani (B.Tech., M. Tech. Ph. D. Tech.)

Professor and Head

This department runs B Tech course in Oil Tech. with focus on edible oils, oleo chemicals, surfactants, perfumes, waxes and cosmetics.  The division has pilot plant facilities for high pressure pressing of oil seeds (decorticator, cooker, expeller), refining of edible oils (alkali refining, vacuum beaching, dewaxing, steam deodorizer), hydrogenations (high pressure autoclave), soap, detergent (ribbon blender) manufacture and fatty acid distillation.  Characterization Instruments include Lovibond Tintometer, Flash, and smoke point apparatus, penetrometer, pour point apparatus, tensiometer, double door refrigerator, Incubator Shaker, Nephlo Turbidity Meter, Low Temperature Centrifuge etc.

THRUST AREAS: Non traditional oils, biodiesel, lipase catalysed synthesis of oleochemicals, novel surfactants, compact detergents etc.

Vision and Mission


To develop professionally skilled technocrats and entrepreneurs to contribute into the betterment of society and industry in a global competitive environment.


To become a centre of excellence in Oils, Oleochemicals, and Surfactants Technology to inculcate the scientific and technological knowledge to the younger generation to fulfill the growing demands for sustainable socio-economic development of society and industry.
