Solving the problem of crop waste by producing second generation biodiesel

Pitch

The current scenario of crop waste burning s a problem in India, Punjab is a major cause of pollution along with transportation. Yearly, 20 million tonnes of wheat straws are produced of which 95% are burnt as waste and some to nourish fields through slash and burn practise. The outcome of pollution from transportation and crop burning results in three times more than of Denmark only from Northern India. Our mission is to convert these waste wheat straws using cleantech licensed process to produce second-generation biodiesel which can be utilized in the transportation and agricultural sector and supply biofertilizers back to farmers to nourish their fields. Ecooil offers biodiesel which has a higher blend ratio with diesel for transportation, zero sulphur emission, a higher storage life of 1 year with respect to our present competitors. Ecooil focusses on the United nations 2030 sustainable developments goals 12 responsible consumption and production to accomplish about SDG 7 and SDG 3
