Innovative clean technology for power generation
IIT-M working on tech to generate power from estuaries
Prof. Vishal Nandigana of the department of mechanical engineering, IIT-M is working on a novel technology that utilises osmotic power to generate electricity in estuaries where salt and sea water meet.
IIT Madras has developed a unique membrane technology to generate power from estuaries.
With this tech just 1 sq meter can generate enough to power 50,000 light bulbs
