Asslamu Alikum, Good Morning I , Muhammad Haaziq ( a school student ) is the founder and CEO of Aqua Chloro Tek Company Here I would like to address the Harmful effects of chlorine that affect Human life. To tackle this device is created known as ELECTRONIC ACTIVATED CHARCOAL LOWERING WATER DEVICE.
With endless advertisements for bottled water and filtering systems, it’s understandable why you might be suspicious of the H20 flowing from your kitchen tap. Contaminants chlorine may be chilling in your elixir of life.Without a further ado, lets indulge in this .
Problem: The question that we raise in our heavy challenging day to day life is about How Can We Provide Clean, Chlorine-Free Water to our society? It is clear why we must provide chlorine free water to our society.
Water, the chlorine reacts to form other substances that could potentially be harmful if consumed at a large amount. There are real, clear statistics that show exposure to chlorinated water results in many skin irritations and hair loss. We have seen in many complaining of thin hair and itchy skin after a long bath.
In UAE The water that we use commercially and in daily life consists of small amount of chlorine which is used to remove germs. Long exposure to even small amount of chlorine affect the skin. Chlorine is commercially cheap, so it is used globally as a disinfectant. My device is a solution for this.
Process of Making Charcoal :First the charcoal must be heated which increases the absorptive power this is called activated charcoal.
Then damaged date palm wood which is readily available in UAE is heated in a vacuum can result it being burned. Heating under vacuum causes carbonization and leads to the formation of Charcoal. The charcoal is “activated” when it's heated to a very high temperature. This changes its structure. Heating gives the fine carbon powder a larger surface area, which makes it more porous.
Then the pure charcoal is processed and finely powdered in factories to produce fine powdered Activated Charcoal.
The work on Van Der Waals forces. Van der Waals forces' is a general term used to define the attraction of intermolecular forces between molecules. The dirt molecule will have a Static charge on them due to them rubbing against each other.
Emerging Prototype :The Emerging Prototype consists of a device basically is a purification and filtration system coupled with asimple electronic water purity measuring system . A mesh bag containing porous fine grade activated charcoal made from damaged palm wood. The amount of porous fine grade activated charcoal in mesh bag depends upon the capacity of the tank.
The main Value proportion of the device : is not to generate profit but to provide a sustainable lifestyle to a human society . It is Portable, Cost Effective, Sustainable ,Credible, Simple to Use.
How to use the device : Instructions : Lower the Device into the tank and hook the ring to the lid of the tank as shown. Then the activated charcoal works its Principle.
Scientific Principle : Activated charcoal with large surface area adsorb more amount of chlorine from the water .The huge surface area of activated charcoal gives it countless bonding sites. When certain chemicals pass next to the carbon surface, they attach to the surface and are trapped. When chlorine or any other impurity molecules passes through the tiny pores in the activated charcoal molecules, the weak charges hold on to the charcoal molecules as these charcoal molecules have a very high surface area.
THE INNOVATION AND WORKING TECHNOLOGY OF THE DEVICE : The device also consist of an electronic part .This electronic part of monitoring system consists of a module in which there is an Infrared diode, receiver and a highly sensitive MID INFRARED SENSOR. along with another module containing the activated charcoal. The diodes chip is very small barely 10 centimeter in length. The diode send beams of IR light to the receiver. The amount of chlorine in water is calculated by the app on the basis of how much IR light is sent from the diode and How much IR light is received by the receiver.
THE BUSINESS MODEL : App: An app called Aqua Chloro Tek Has been made to make service smoother with customers. For Ensuring the service provided the user is asked to download the app where the user is asked to sign up or sign in. When we download the app the user is asked to sign up or sign in. After the registration process is done he would have to enter the capacity of the water tank. And the process is done. The device scans the water and shows him a live feed about the water purity and quality and chlorine level. The app monitors the water 24/7 and notifies the user when it is time for cleaning. When the user grants permission the module, it activated the lowering of the activated charcoal and keeps it submerged in the water until it detects that the water is clean and free of chlorine. When the cleaning is over the motor in the module reels the device back to the top of the tank, ready for the next cleaning.
MARKETING STRATEGY AND DIGITAL ADVERTISEMENT: Popularizing the Product and Company through social media is one way in reaching out customers and various companies across the World.
ESTABLISHING PATNERSHIP WITH COMPANIES PROMOTING SUSTAINABLE LIFESTYLE AND REVENUE GENERATION :
Implementing the device by creating in partnership with lead certified companies like Al Dar ,Emaar ,Majid al Futtaim etc and residential units which promote sustainable living and ensure maintaining High HDI of the people living there and convincing customers and companies about the implementation of this devices and its advantage in the society.Investment can be made through these companies which helps in creating revenue rather than collecting it from the customer at very high cost. This device is introduced to customer at very low and discounted rate. Revenue can be made from digital advertisement. This helps in increasing the productivity, turnover and efficiency in revenue generation the product can be also sold in online shopping, website like Amazon etc.
THE PROJECTS CONNECTION WITH THE CUSTOMER :First the device will be implemented in residential unit across UAE with the help of app in order to maintain and provide a sustainable lifestyle. Then introduce in other sectors of the UAE and World.
A website is created to Collect the Data and Feedback Of the Customer. The website also helps in creating transparency within customers .The Feedback Session also plays a pivotal role in the improvement of the service provided to the People .Here the customers have a chance to review the service provided to them by filling the following details.
SUSTAINABILE MANUFACTURING OF THE DEVICE : The mesh bag of the device can be made from plastic waste and the electronic part from e waste and hence the device promotes sustainable recycling. The method of plastic recycling was inspired from Plastic recycling Campaigns across the World how Normally, polyester is made from petroleum. But we melts these pellets to create a filament, which is spun into in order to form polyester yarn which can be used in making the mesh bag . Popularizing Digital Poster is also a way in creating awareness to people that the device is Eco friendly in nature .
PROJECTS NOVEL CONTRIBUTION TO THE FIELD OF GLOBAL DEVELOPMENT :It helps in improving water quality. It improves the quality of human life and prevents people from many skin irritation and hair loss. .This method is also cost effective in nature. This project also aims in promoting a suitable method through sustainable and efficient manner..This project aims to bring down this hospitalization of human beings which is caused due to long exposure of chlorine water and aims to improve the quality of the water that we use daily. This project also promote sustainable methods through recycling and reusing of its respective components and making the device cheap to use commercially and making it eco-friendly in nature.
THE PROJECTS CONNECTION WITH THE COUNTRY (UAE) :Electronic Activated Charcoal Lowering Water Device can also play a pivotal role in Agricultural ,Water and Saline Industry as this prototype ensures sustainable method of manufacturing in a cost-effective method even commercially which helps in improving the quality of water which intended improves the quality of human This also reduces the plastic waste generation in the country ,hence promoting sustainability in the country .
