Pravega on Creating a Circular Economy

Kalyani Sudhir Kumar and Team Pravega from the Government Engineering College Barton Hill, India, believes that recycling materials are both advantageous to the environment and economically effective.

Even for a highly developed state like Kerala in India, waste management is a huge challenge. Conscious of this problem, the team embarked on a mission to turn garbage that is usually left for the community to burn in their back yards into something useful.

Team Manager Kalyani, tells the highly innovative story of how their 2022 Shell Eco-marathon car is made entirely of waste collected from their local communities. The team researched the best ways to recycle the materials and even had their design tested in an ISO-certified facility. They hope to transform the design of millions of auto-rickshaws in their city with their material.

Since their studies are subsidised by the government, Team Pravega gives back to society by working with INSPIRE, an NGO founded by their university to help underprivileged students. They want to help more young individuals achieve their dreams through their weekly STEM courses.
