The Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) has issued a Circular on Technology Challenge for Identifying and Promoting Solutions for Mitigating Ambient Air Pollution wherein considering the Rapid urbanization in the country that is putting incessant pressure on ambient air quality in the cities and therefore, CPCB invites technological solutions or Proposals from interested innovators, individuals, consortium partners, companies, academic institutions, research and development centres, civil society organisations (NGOs), parastatals or municipal bodies, to provide innovative technical solutions for control or abatement of urban ambient air pollution for in situ pollution control. The aim of the Technological Challenge is to scale and foster–technological and business solutions to control or abate urban ambient air pollution.

The objectives are as follows:-

• Identify technological as well as business process innovations.

• Endorse viable business models that are suitable for a different size, geographies, and class of cities.  

• Pilot test and handhold to scale the shortlisted technologies/solutions in select project cities.  

• Bridge the gap between innovators/manufacturers and beneficiaries- i.e. urban local bodies (ULBs), citizens

Evaluation Process and Criteria:-

For evaluation and scrutiny of the technological solutions submitted by the participants, a jury shall be constituted from among experts from the Ministry of Environment Forests & Climate Change, faculty from IITs/NEERI/ CSIR Institutes and representatives of leading civil society groups.

• The efficiency of the technology shall be measured with respect to; Effectiveness, Clean air delivery vis-a-vis cost, and Energy efficiency.

• The technology shall be evaluated for the ease of use.

• The technology should be versatile enough to be used

• Equipment parts easily available in the local market should be given preference.

• The technology should not adversely affect the natural environment (surface, groundwater, flora, and fauna) over the period of its usage.

The Challenge will remain open on December 01, 2020 from 10:00 hrs to 17:30 hrs on March 15, 2021.
