Making Kanpurites proud!
The sudden rise in pollution clubbed with the deadly spread of coronavirus has led to an increase in the number of respiratory diseases in Kanpur. The lockdown may have been lifted a long while ago but the number of Covid-19 cases is still on a rise.
With the constantly deteriorating AQI, resulting due to the winter smog, pollution, etc, it is only advisable for people to stay indoors as much as possible. In such unprecedented times, Mayank Saxena, a class 10th student from Onkareshwar Saraswati Vidya Niketan Inter College has developed a cost-effective air purifier to fight the air pollution in the city.
A cost effective air purifier
According to Mayank, the cost of developing this air purifier was just Rs 2,000. The air purifier is also being vouched as a better deal than any other purifier available in the market, in the range of Rupees 10,000-12,000. This utility machine is easy to carry around which makes it a perfect fit for your homes, offices and workstations. The air purifier works on four batteries (9V-12V), which are connected to the solar panel. It uses HC-05 for Bluetooth connectivity.
The air quality of Kanpur is very unhealthy and not everyone can afford expensive air purifiers which is why this invention is a game-changer! This is a convenient and affordable alternative to fight air pollution in the city and given the age of the inventor, it surely deserves praise and all the attention.
