Explain your idea in details:
energy needs are increasing day by day and fossil energy reserves are limited. Moreover, rising global carbon emission is an issue of great concern. Thinking, about the long term, humanity definitely needs greener and cleaner sources of energy. Pondering about the same issue we discovered that 50% of global carbon emissions are caused by agricultural, human, and animal waste. Now, if we solve this issue, it can have 400% more value than the electric automobile sector which aims to eradicate 14% of global carbon footprints by 2027 with a projected market cap of $801Bn. We have successfully designed a fully autonomous machinery/plant for group housing societies, separating sewerage and converting human waste to electricity and manure. Today, All the human fecal waste ultimately goes to water bodies and there is no system to create value from it. our designed plant for energy production from human waste is fully autonomous and it separates fecal waste from sewerage and converts it into manure and electricity. our production algorithm estimates a total value that could be generated out of human feces of 1000 households is approximately $8,200-$12,200 per month, Subjected to capital investment on the generator system. we estimate an excellent ROI of 3 years for this system. Focusing on value-rich cattle waste we have an additional value generative solution for small cattle farmers. We will franchise existing bio-CNG plants and align them with cattle waste supply using an app-based system enforced with an autonomous cow dung cleaning and collection system. An average cow keeper in India has about 45-100cows with each cow on average producing about 25-30kg of manure daily, all this waste is valueless for them as there is no system to provide them value for the same. our in-house production algorithm estimates a total value creation of about $106 per cow. website- https://vizionz.nicepage.io/vizion-z.html?version=b73d67be-5499-4744-a4ac-a28b1c9ac633&uid=2acdbd8e-8860-47e5-9e01-2c401aed6c2b
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
our idea is aligned with the 4 SDGs. They are listed as follows:- 1.Affordable and clean energy- Through our diversified operations and clean energy generation from waste, we could provide clean energy to the public at a very affordable price. 2.Industry, Innovation, and infrastructure- we will contribute significantly to the sustainable energy sector of the country by providing people value through the power of innovation. 3. Sustainable Cities and communities- As we plan to treat human waste and convert it to the useable form of energy and nutrients we will reduce the carbon footprints providing sustainable cities and communities. 4.Climate action- As we aim for reducing India's carbon emissions by 50% in long run by targeting the issues of utmost concern. India accounts for 30% of the global cattle population(largest in the world). If we could create a successful system by aligning the interests of our franchised bio-mass manure and energy plants, the market growth potential is humongous. Our target market of the dairy farmer has an estimated total market size of $384Bn per annum nationally. Now coming to the system proposed for group housing society, this system is almost half the cost of solar alternatives of sustainable energy. This market can create a total value of $9.7Bn per annum nationally. Targets(next 6 months):- In the next 3 months, we aim to publish our fully functional application-based concept for dairy farmers with a due partnership with the existing bio-CNG producer. In further 3 months, we would aim to get 100 dairy farmers associated with our application. We would start testing out prototypes and focus on building our brand value to raise initial capital investment for marketing and production for housing society energy plants. We will Work and launch our companies own crypto-currency by the end of the 6th month.
Plans for implementation and sustainability
I'm working on this concept with my friend Kushagra Verma, he has his expertise more on the technical front of the concept. our business model:- Dairy farmer Model- We are connecting dairy farmers (raw material providers) with the energy producer and manure manufacturer (our franchise). After due deduction of processing cost, out of total profit, we will be charging our service fee as % of total profit. This PROFIT% will be negotiated and finalized after due discussion with the partnered franchise. Housing Society Model-Here we will be paid directly for our plant/machinery that will convert waste to energy. Our procedural support services will support the production of manure from slurry and other functional services. So, Now on the NET value created, we will be charging 10-15% as our share. Financing Source:- For the initial capital required for launching the service for dairy farmers, we would raise capital through VCs or angel/seed investors. This seed investment will help us to build our service ecosystem, for example- logistic partnerships, service eco-system, and initial marketing capital, etc. For our second targeted consumer base, i.e-Group housing societies, as this system will require more capital investment on the production front and some more time is also required for testing prototypes of the designso, for this purpose to raise funding from investors we would focus on creating our brand value for next 6 months implementing the concept of app-based ecosystem system for dairy farmers. Disrupting conventional financing:- As in future we will grow in size, value and capture a large market we have planned to launch our own CRYPTO-CURRENCY as its value is based on demand and supply. Today it doesn't have any underlying product value for the investors. So, by launching our own crypto our cryptos value will become directly proportional to the value of our product, unlike other cryptocurrencies.
We are Utkarsh Sharma and Kushagra Verma from the Delhi-NCR region of India. Kushagra is 16year old and Utkarsh is 17year old, respectively. Our relationship is not new, and we know each other for the past 4 years but the previous year, while working on the NASA Lunar Loo Challenge we realized the potential we have as a team, we very well understand each other and believe each other and respect our views and concerns. Apart from this, we have a scientific-entrepreneurial mindset, we both believe in transforming society using new scientific innovations and reframing existing scientific methods to scale them using our entrepreneurial mindset. For, the past 1 year we both are striving hard to make our project a reality. Achievements Utkarsh- he is an active participant in all socio-cultural events in the school. He is a great stage performer from acting to debating. Apart from that he has a very scientific mindset and aspires to be a social entrepreneur. He has actively participated in ODMs and won various school science challenges. Last year he also participated in NASA Lunar Loo Challenge. Kushagra:- he has actively taken part in MUN's and thus had developed public speaking capabilities over the years. We have taken part in various science competitions and secured decent positions. NASA lunar loo challenge was our break. Submission in CSIR 2021.
