The Last Rite Done Right

Project Arth

What we do?

Arth is a social enterprise run by students of IIT Delhi working to reduce deforestation caused by the fuelwood being used in cremations. Arth has devised a solution that goes with rituals of traditional hindu funerals. We aim to replace the fuelwood with logs made of cow dung, these logs have been modified for lower emissions. After a phase of in-depth analysis of the process of log production, we have worked on various parts. The most important among them being drying of the wet logs, major reason for not letting expansion of the idea throughout the country. Arth has come up with a drying solution that reduce the drying duration and hence not only fastens the entire process but also increases its ease.
