Startup Pi Green and Cummins sign clean air retrofit agreement

2022-08-17 | India

A filterless device, it is based on electrostatic precipitation for capturing particulate matter in emissions

  • Vehicle emissions reduction
  • Pune startup
  • Particulate emission reduction retrofit
  • Electrostatic precipitation


Notes by Narsi

While particulate emissions reduction from vehicle emissions does not directly contribute to greenhouse gas reductions, there are studies that indicate that high air pollution has an adverse effect of climate change. An added benefit from this startup's invention could be that the particulate matter so captured could be used in dyes, paints and resins, resulting in decreasing the fossil sources needed to make these.
