Meet Karan Chawla who has Developed a Brick From Waste
Meet Karan Chawla (24), a scholar of MTech in Structural Engineering at the Thapar Institute of Engineering and technological know-how, who has developed a brick from waste, which enables light to pass through it.
He has now established Roschcrete, a begin-up, which develops such bricks to save electricity cost throughout the sunlight hours. These bricks do not have any hole and don’t let warmth pass through. Also, these don’t require any paint or plaster, which simplifies the construction and saves time and money.
These bricks are two-and- half times steeply-priced, 20% heavier, but one-and-a-half instances better than average bricks. Chawla used to be at Panjab institution in these days for a national entrepreneurship summit, Udyami.
Bricks are product of making use of about 70 per cent waste fabric and also slash carbon footprint he said. Introducing his begin-up, he said, We don’t need economic funding. We’re watching for strategic companions. We’re going small and taking most effective pre-orders.
I have filed one patent and will file three more soon, he mentioned. Chawla’s idea has been wholly funded via the Thapar Institute, which has spent about Rs 4 lakh in two years. I have acquired support from teachers and mentors, and have been supplied equipment. The institute even sent me to the Netherlands for coaching, he said.The -up is offering 4 products floor tiles, table prime, brick and wall cladding and name plate logo.
