Background and environmental problem:In India,the body of a person is burnt according to the Hindu traditions using logs of wood that causes air pollution, respiratory problems to nearby residents and cutting down of trees.Between 500-600 kg of wood is required to burn one body.
Solution:Pollution free solar crematorium that uses concentrated solar energy to burn the dead body.The processes involved in this technology are:
- Igniting the dead body locally with the help of a huge concentrating reflector having very high CR and to maintain the combustion of dead body by supplying the fresh atmospheric air with the help of blower.
- Once combustion of dead body starts within the cremation chamber, it also releases heat which automatically in combination with solar energy obtained from concentrating reflector maintains continuous burning of dead body until complete dead body gets converted into ash.dead body until complete dead body gets converted into ash.
1.Concentrated solar reflector distributors.
4.Local Citizens living close to the crematorium.
1.First step is to educate religious groups and citizens of having a wood free crematorium.
2.Partnering with local solar engineering firms to develop the technology.
3.Working with local municipalities to help fund the project.
