Explain your project in details:

The core objective of our project is the development of a renewable energy system that has a low initial and operational cost and can be integrated with the existing infrastructure without causing much disturbance to the surrounding ecosystems. We find in wastewater a resource which has immense, reasonably untapped potential for generating clean, emission free renewable energy. The availability of wastewater is not an issue, it is virtually free, and its amount and variability stay mostly the same throughout the year for a particular region which qualifies it for a capacity factor that is higher than any other renewable energy resource. Therefore, the primary point of focus of this project is the exploitation and exploration of this potential in a meaningful way that leads to the development of a functional system that is capable of generating energy. Sustainable energy production is gaining importance, rapid urbanization has led to the destruction of water bodies, unabated discharge of drainage water without aeration or any other treatment in metropolitan cities has led to the degradation of the water bodies. Therefore we aim to employ Gravitational Water Vortex Power Plants (GWVPP), GWVPP is an ultra-low head turbine which can operate in low head range with similar yield as a conventional hydroelectric turbine used for production of renewable energy characterized with a positive environmental yield, it is also especially suited to the wastewater network because any solids are naturally separated by the vortex flow.

Impact of your enterprise on sustainable development

Environmentally friendly, more commercially viable systems which incur a lower cost, and can be installed with simplified civil works are the next step in the evolution of our current Hydro-power systems. The project is still in a development stage, but it has the encouragement and support by the Civil Engineering Department at our University and our project supervisor. The project just secured funding for the prior to the development of a functional prototype system which is unprecedented in the history of our department.

Sustainability and future plans

We plan on scaling the prototype system up to an industrial scale and install it primarily at the effluent outlets of Wastewater Treatment Plants. We plan on getting seed funding for the company to get started.

Your profile as an entrepreneur

I am a final year Civil Engineering Student at the NED University of Engineering and Technology, engaged in the development of hydro based renewable energy solutions and an aspiring water resource management specialist. I think the lines from the Broadway musical Hamilton "I'm just like my country I'm young scrappy and hungry" aptly describe my motivation contributing to my success.
