IIT Madras Working Creating “Blue Energy” From Estuaries - Green Showcase @ GreenExpo
Featuring the best of green in Chennai
Dr. Vishal Nandigana, an IIT-M researcher is working on a novel technology that generates electricity from estuaries.
Uses a semi-permeable membrane to separate salt and freshwater to produce power.
Reduces dependency on conventional fuels/ energy sources.
Osmotic Power Technology involves the following processes:
Benefit of osmotic power generation is that estuaries where sea and fresh water meet can be used to generate power.
