a. India- for small and marginal farmer
He has assembled with the locally available materials (available with auto shops, lathe workshop) and it costs Rs. 6000/- only. Many farmers visited his innovation. He advise them to make their own production by themselves by supporting all engineering sketches, design and the process of assembling. Already 2 farmers assembled the same model with the innovator’s guidance.
Link: this system[i], the intake air is passed over the exhaust manifold (silencer), which results pre heating of the intake air. NIF facilitated its testing at BIT Mesra, Ranchi. The test report mentions that the use of the modified silencer and the system for preheating of intake air increases the mileage by 25 to 30 per cent. This technology is still in the process of being refined so that it can be used at a wide scale and needs some adjustments in filter, intake manifold and the timing of fuel supply. NIF also filed a patent (1460/MUM/2009) in his name for the technology.
Manufacturing Capacity: b) Design Support, d) Licensing, e) Franchising
