Renewable Energy (Div 5)
Earth has been plagued by numerous problems over the past two decades because of overexploitation of resources by man. Today, developing nations are struggling with acute Energy Deficits and Solid Waste Management issues. Almost50%-70% of the populations in large developing nations like India and China have no access to power whereas there is no viable solution on how to viably treat the Municipal Solid Waste almost all over the world. Therefore, due to ICL’s R&D and technological expertise, the decision to develop revolutionary technologies that could combat these “Glocal” problems has propelled ICL onto a more social path. ICL is now providing power solutions for Developing Nations through a run-on-the-river hydroelectricity turbine called the Pitre Auger Turbine (PAT) and Combined Cooling, Heating and Power (CCHP) Systemswhile it is also able to convert Municipal Solid Waste(MSW) to Energy effectively – three solutions desperately required to help large sections of the Globe achieve their basic necessities and quality of life.
