A man from Delhi invents pollution control machine met with PM Modi in Glasgow UK

Vidyut Mohan, a Delhi based Mechanical Engineer & founder of Takachar.com, decided to move forward & work in the field of clean Air Solutions.

This decision had been based on his personal experiences of Delhi’s toxic air leading to him being sick often, or his grandmother would also be under sickness due to the massive air pollution present in the Delhi climatic changes.

He started to work on an invention that would help in the reduction of Carbon emissions, further resulting in balancing the air in the environment.

He invented a small-scale, tractor mountable & highly portable equipment which processes tonnes of agricultural waste into renewable fuel and also fertilizers.

The innovative machine changes straws of rice, coconut shells and converts them into energy using the same principle as used in a coffee roaster.

Agricultural waste is roasted at controlled temperatures, which, in turn, produces fuel fertilizers. Also, several other products are usable in Agricultural land.

Equipment invented was first tested & piloted in Uttarakhand state, now it is further being tested in other areas too.

The technology has been found to help in reductions of Carbon emissions to the level of 98 per cent resulting in improvement of Air quality.

PM was also particularly interested in knowing that where and how was Mr Mohan’s team manufacturing.

Mr Mohan said that even though his meeting with the PM lasted for two minutes, he hoped that this would be the forwarding step leading to a partnership with the Government.

He further added that he aimed to come with a quick solution in this step as Government and other private corporations working together would quickly start up a mass scale production of the invention.

A mass-scale production would affect consistent pricing, which will be better received by the Agricultural land consumers.

He said $120 billion worth of agricultural waste is produced per annum globally, and farmers burn this waste to create land for new plantations.

According to a study by WHO, agricultural land set on fire releases emissions that kill almost seven million people globally.
