Dell Join Forces With Bangalore Startup To Control Diesel Generator Air Pollution


With the objective of generating alertness regarding the mounting levels of air pollution, technology leader Dell organized an experimental event in association with tech startup Chakr Innovation. This firm changes diesel soot to ink (POINK) via their retro-fit emission control tool for diesel generators.

The Chakr Innovation’s technology can capture more than 90% of the particulate matter discharges from the diesel generators’ exhaust without causing any unpleasant effect on the diesel engine. India VP and CSR Champion for Dell, Rajeev Kapoor, said, “We support creations that resolve huge issues and are pleased to associate with Chakr Innovation to tackle the problem of increasing air pollution levels in the city and start a positive conversation about the problem.”

The event witnessed famous cartoonist N. Ponappa drawing live cartoons portraying the damaging effects of diesel discharges on our well-being and promising designer Tahera Peeran displaying her striking assortment curated with POINK and khadi fabric to persuade the viewers to use recycled items and take on an eco-friendly lifestyle.

CEO of the Chakr Innovation, Kushagra Srivastava, said, “Our objective is to rein in pollution of air by recycling it. Chakr Shield, our product, assists in decreasing air pollution by transforming diesel soot released from generators into paints and inks that can be securely reused.”

Srivastava added, “It is hopeful to perceive that Dell has been utilizing POINK for printing and packaging products at its manufacturing unit in India. We expect to strengthen the affiliation to confine the air pollution at its resource and produce a greener and beautiful tomorrow for all of us.”

Also, Jeffrey Geddes, a Boston University professor, aspire s to better comprehend our air and the way it is altering, with an emphasis on how emissions’ natural resources interrelate with discharges from human activities, for instance, burning fossil fuels. For this, Geddes was rewarded around $1 Million in the federal research grants.
