Energy Harvest

Using AI to map, collect, and process crop residue into biofuel

About

India produces 500-550 million tonnes of crop residue every year. In the states of Punjab and Haryana, 35 millions tonnes of paddy straw is left over after harvesting, most of which is burned. Energy Harvest uses AI to identify waste biomass and then works with farmers to collect it. Energy Harvest Charitable was started with three main goals: to solve the crop residue burning problem, manufacture useful products from this crop residue, and subsequently increase farmer income.
