India’s Ravi Prakash was awarded the BRICS-Young Innovator Prize for inventing affordable and indigenously-designed milk chilling unit. The announcement was made by the Department of Science and Technology.
Ravi Prakash won the first prize at the BRICS -Young scientist forum's conclave, which was conducted during November 6-8, 2019 in Brazil. The BRICS-Young Innovator Prize carries a cash reward worth USD 25,000.
Ravi Prakash is an Indian Ph.D. scholar of ICAR-National Dairy Research Institute (NDRI), Bangalore. Ravi Prakash was awarded the BRICS-Young Innovator Prize for coming up with an indigenous and affordable solution to storing milk while maintaining its quality and safety.
The milk chilling unit can be used by the small and marginal rural dairy farmers to cool milk from the point of production by reducing the temperature of raw milk from 37 degrees Celsius to 7 degrees Celsius within just 30 minutes using nano-fluid based phase change materials.
The innovation of the new indigenously-designed and affordable milk chilling unit is of great socio-economic importance for all the developing countries, as it will help preserve the quality of milk just after production. The invention would also add value to the farmer’s efforts.
INSIDE A GOVERNMENT FLEET FACILITY ⚙️🧰🔧 Understanding the mechanics of how things work inside and out — Who runs governments.. what do they use.. what do they need.. how much does it cost? Learning how a government fleet operates might not sound like a big deal, but let’s look at the data💡— The US government operates the largest civilian fleet in the world • Throughout 38,000 public fleet divisions • Buying and maintaining the vehicles used by our firefighters, police, recycling facilities, public works & others. All this invisible infrastructure keeps our cities and countries running⚡️ Thankful for our early government customers for giving us the opportunity to look at things closely so we can design CATEGORY-DEFINING products for the biggest decision-makers in the world 🌎 🚀 #socialglass
