About the Practice
Problem Statement:

Reduce energy consumption and restrict GHG emissions in the cremation sector through the use of most efficient and culturally acceptable cremation system


During the selection process of project, Shri. Arjunbhai Paghdar analysed that everyone in engineering is trying to reduce the use of conventional sources but there are still some places where we can’t avoid using conventional sources, one of them is Hindu Cremation. No one is paying attention on reducing the carbon coming out from crematoria. This is the place where people don’t want to avoid rituals and according to Hindu rituals we have to burn dead body which requires large amount of wood that comes by deforestation. This project mainly aims to reduce air and water pollution. Here air pollution occurs due to burning of woods along with dead body and water pollution when a half burned body is thrown into river due to incomplete combustion, here FD blower, ID blower & closed insulated structure is used in this project for complete combustion.
