Renewable Energy and Emission Reduction, Water and Wate Management, Bioenergy Utilization
MUTALA MOHAMMED, has a broad background in energy and renewable energy technologies deployment and knowledge dissemination at the community level. He holds a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degree in Environmental Engineering. He worked as a graduate research assistant from 2015-2018 at Kocaeli University (Turkey) during his doctorate studies. In his doctoral thesis, he assessed the potential production of bio-dried material from different waste composition by biological drying (bio-drying) process. Mutala currently holds the position of a research scientist at the energy technologies division of the Institute of Industrial Research (IIR), one of the institutes of the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), Ghana. In his current position as a research scientist, he is conducting research and developing innovative technologies to deal with waste and energy recovery from secondary materials (waste) to augment households’ energy needs.
