Aligarh. Extracting oil from aromatic plants is an extremely complex process and takes a long time. But Masroor Khan, a professor in the Botany Department at Aligarh Muslim University, has discovered a modern method of extracting perfumes and oils from plants using induction coolers and induction heaters. They call this method FORT (Fast Oil Recovery Technique). It is approx. 4 times faster than the normal method and thus oil from mint, mint, peppermint, rose, lavender, lemongrass, basil, khus, etc. can easily be obtained. Professor Masroor Khan said that Dr. Mohammad Naeem and Dr. Tariq Aftab are involved in this project. He said progress has been made in patenting this technology by the Government of India. He previously received a patent for increasing peppermint production using nanoparticles. Professor Masroor Khan holds a PhD from Aligarh Muslim University and a postdoctoral fellowship from Ohio State University, USA. He has been active in research and teaching for almost 40 years. To date, his 200 articles have been published in standard magazines and he has authored more than a dozen books on medicinal plants. These are the advantages of this new method – Professor Masroor Khan said that this technique can extract oil from one kilogram of mint in just 45 minutes. Usually it takes about 3 hours. On the other hand, the electricity costs with this method are less than a quarter. Third, the normal method uses about 250 liters of tap water for cooling. With this method, only one to two kilograms of ice are used. In addition, there is no longer any heat in the workplace.
