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*. In our effort to give back to the planet, we’ve received a slew of awards, including being named among the top 30 Innovators at the DST-Lockheed Martin India Innovation Growth Programme.
We have invented a device which 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.
Air pollution causes 4.2 Million premature deaths every year.
Our technology can capture over 95% 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.
