Solutions to monitor and tackle urban air pollution within Indian urban environments

Summary

The iX Challenge competition, delivered by KTN, is supporting the Department for International Trade (DIT) in India to identify innovative solutions to significant and immediate challenges. Those businesses and university programmes which are selected by the challenge owner as offering the most promising solutions will be given a commercial opportunity to deliver their solution and receive support from KTN and the wider DIT network. The DIT is working closely with the Indian city authorities, investor groups and local stakeholders to seek and engage with the best-in-class UK solution curators. As well as developed solutions being brought forward from the UK within this process, the Indian challenge owners are keen to develop collaborative partnerships with UK industrialists and academics to foster new innovative approaches to the air quality challenge agenda in this region. The air quality and pollution challenge is not limited to any single Indian city. Although a keen area of focus for the Indian city authorities is traffic and street pollution (NOx), all innovative airborne pollution abatement solutions will be considered including industrial emissions (VOCs), domestic particulate matter (PM2.5), and sulphur dioxide (SO2).
