Gati Foundation has signed an MoU with CSIR-IIP (Council of Scientific & Industrial Research – Indian Institute of Petroleum), Dehradun. CSIR is a premier national R&D organization with a network of 38 labs spread across the country. IIP is the organization behind India’s maiden commercial bio-fuel flight. In-fact, the first-ever Indian Air Force flight using bio-fuel was on display this Republic Day fly-past on the 26th of January, 2019. This bio-fuel was also developed in Dehradun at the IIP lab. From a national perspective, such green efforts are meant to put focus on greater use of alternative resources to cut India’s dependence on oil imports.

Apart from the biofuel, IIP has also been working on a revolutionary and completely new technology that enables it to convert 1,000 Kg of plastic waste into high quality diesel (BS-VI). IIP  has been working on the technology for several years and is now ready to scale it up with a 1 Ton (1,000 Kg) per day plant. The plant will convert 1,000 Kg of plastic into 800 litres of high quality diesel. Gati considers it as an honor and an incredible opportunity to collaborate with IIP as their Social Technology Partners for this project. As a Social Partner, Gati will largely be responsible for creating supply chains and developing mechanisms for segregation and collection of plastic waste through a network of community driven, to-be-established, Plastic Banks.

Hope this MoU and collaboration will provide innovative platforms for citizens, corporates, institutions and government to create their own mini-platforms for plastic segregation and collection. Gati has experienced that if  they are able to provide alternatives to individuals and communities, they have the capacity to rise to our expectations.

The IIP and Gati collaboration is hopefully an initiative that has the potential to bring a citizen led, sustainable and impactful change of scale.
