Many factories, private companies and even regular individuals are starting to benefit from the increasing number of eco-friendly solutions available in India. Even though this is a new endeavor it has already sparked considerable interest.
Experts have pointed out that the country is slowly but surely improving its ability of dealing with the waste management and electricity production issues.
India’s “Green Potential”
Numerous companies have been focusing on green energy and adopting simple technological solutions with the help of ideas for small infrastructural changes geared toward the reduction of waste and pollution.
Here are just a small number of aspects to consider:
- In some areas, waste is basically turned into a commodity, as new recycling technologies are slowly taking over.
- Companies are investing heavily into technologies that use alternative energy producing techniques, including solar or wind energy.
- Considering the country’s high energy deficit and large electricity costs, the market is ripe for alternative, clean energy technologies to emerge.
- Other technologies are also on the horizon, geared toward reducing pollution and creating better working conditions in factories.
The People’s Initiative
In many cases, people are also taking matters into their own hands. Many of them have proven that you don’t need tens of thousands of dollars in funding in order to apply a simple idea for waste removal or recycling.
One entrepreneur has developed and become successful selling a very simple eco-friendly stove. The device is geared to improve efficiency and eliminate harmful greenhouse gases coming from the regular mud stoves most people still use.
At the same time, a factory owner in Mumbai has come up with a revolutionary new prototype machine for developing a crude type of oil out of all kinds of materials, including plastic and electronic waste.
As more and more people are coming up with innovative ideas on how to deal with the country’s pollution and waste, the simplicity of some of these new technologies are also gaining popularity abroad. It may be only a short matter of time before India can enjoy clean air, as well as a solid economy.
