A company in Jammu and Kashmir has come up with green technology that doesn’t use much energy, electricity, or a furnace. One of Satinder Nath Gupta’s sons is now running a company called Green Trek. The team agreed to set up a long-term plant in Himachal Pradesh.
- Green technology from the Indian Institute of Technology, Mandi saves energy, power and furnace.
- The technology is non-polluting.
- It repurposes steel mill refuse.
- Satinder Nath Gupta and his son Sandeep Gupta founded Green Trek in Jammu and Kashmir to employ extractive metallurgy to combat pollution.
- Officials said the team employs clean combustion to recycle garbage into the metal with high iron content for industries like shipbuilding, stone crushing, oil and gas, and power plants.
An Indian Institute of Technology, Mandi start-up, has developed green technology that doesn’t use a lot of energy, electricity, or a furnace. The technology doesn’t cause any pollution. It turns waste from steel mills into things that can be used. In Jammu and Kashmir, Satinder Nath Gupta and his son Sandeep Gupta have started a company called Green Trek. They want to use extractive metallurgy to clean up the environment, named the company Green Trek.
Team members use clean combustion techniques to cut the waste into the metal with a lot of iron, which can then be used by industries like shipbuilding, stone crushing plants and oil and gas plants. They can then reuse the iron-rich metal.
Use scrap steel like this: IIT MANDI
When Sandeep told PTI that he was working on a circular economy model that used extractive metallurgy, he said that greenhouse gases were reduced, and a waste management process was put in place that was safe.
“The method we came up with uses less energy, doesn’t use electricity or a furnace, and is 100% pollution-free and emits very little greenhouse gas.”
Finally, the molten metal is mixed with other metals to make a wide range of high-value steel and alloy castings used in a wide range of industries says the man in charge.
GOAL OF IIT MANDI’S GREEN TREK
Green Trek’s goal is to make high-quality green steel products with cutting-edge technology and be a leader in waste management in India and worldwide. When the team met, they signed an agreement that would allow them to set up a long-term plant in Himachal Pradesh that will serve companies like Ultratech and ACC and Ambuja Cement.
People who signed an MOU with Green Trek want the company to set up a plant that makes parts for heavy industries like cement plants and stone crushers by reducing greenhouse gas emissions through its unique process of making them.
Sandeep said that the government would help with all the permissions, licenses, and help needed to make the trek green as and when it was needed.
