We are a team of skilled engineers and innovators who believe that to improve the quality of life on earth, we need to improve the quality of its air. And what better place to start than India - home to 10 of the top 20 most polluted cities in the world. Our product Chakr Shield is an innovative emission control device that captures pollution at source and converts it into something useful!
We have invented an emission control device for diesel generators. This device can be retrofitted on diesel generators and can capture ~90% of particulate matter emission. Created using a novel solution-based method, it is a one of its kind device which controls pollution without causing any adverse impact on the engine’s performance or the environment. The story doesn’t end here – once captured, the pollutant, which is essentially black carbon, is processed and converted into inks and paints. The device is called Chakr Shield - with the Hindi word for “Chakr” meaning circle, signifying the closing of the loop for Black Carbon. Thus the technology captures and reuses air pollution!
Air pollution causes 4.2 Million premature deaths every year.
Our technology can capture ~90% of particulate matter and convert it into inks and paints.
Cleaner air for everyone to breathe.
Chakr Innovation aims to create pioneering, sustainable and scalable technologies to combat the grave threat posed by pollution. Our mission is to develop and implement innovative solutions which can effectively control pollution - saving the natural environment and protecting people's health. Our first product, a retrofit emission control device for diesel generators, aims at addressing one of the most pressing issues for humankind - availability of breathable air by capturing pollution at source.
