Method of resetting the climate. Dynamic vehicle CO2 collectors. Various methodologies like CO2 scrubber, Bio Energy with carbon capture



Various methodologies for enhanced weathering technique need to be identified. Available methodologies including CO2 scrubber, Bio Energy with carbon capture and storage, carbon absobants can be used.

Installing suitable device in the automotive vehicles which travels lengths and breadths of India can be utilized for this purposes. 

The length of Indian roads are more than 4000000 Km. There are lakhs of vehicles traveling across the country. 

In this proposal we are trying toA adapt a technique which can absorb the CO2 from the air and can clean the atmosphere. Such devices installed in automotive vehicles which travel across the country leads to the CO2 emission absorption as well as creating the clean atmosphere.



Which proposals are included in your plan and how do they fit together?

Explanation of the emissions scenario calculated in the Impact tab

What are the plan’s key benefits?

Cleans the atmospheric air.

Can be utilized across the country and even across the globe.

Certain methodologies can be adopted in installing the device in the automotive vehicles.

Also the Indian Railway trains can be added to support this purpose.


What are the plan’s costs?

Initial research - USD 2000

Device design and testing - USD 3000

Laboratory prototype / Real model - USD 2200

Initial Implementing vehicles and CO2 measurement and control - USD 4500

Device cost - Depends on the vehicle frontal area (Decided based on per unit expenditure) 

Certain subsidies can be raised from the government.

And it can be a business for budding entrepreneurs


What are the key challenges to enacting this plan?

Initial funding

In order to implement in road vehicles needs safety concerns

Collected CO2 conversion in to useful form.

Service centres for filters 


Total time - 3 years

Initialising and research - 2 years

Implementation - 1 year
