Winners of Smogathon 2018 are officially selected
The Smogathon 2018 is now over and the most innovative clean air projects in the world have been selected.
The Grand Finale of the Smogathon international contest took place on November 19 in Krakow. The international jury presented three awards and a special implementation prize. The first prize of $15,000 was given to an Indian-American team Takachar, solving the problem of inefficient biomass combustion by converting it into a more cost-effective fuel. “Thanks to our solution farmers can not only stop contributing to air pollution due to biomass combustion but also to increase their income by selling the converted fuel”, says Vidyut Mohar, the co-creator of the solution.
