A cleantech hackathon to find solutions for challenging problems in various areas such as air, water, noise pollution, water body cleaning, plastic recycling and other related areas was organised by theiTIC incubator in IIT-Hyderabad. iTIC incubator of IIT-H organised a clean-a-thon, a cleantech hackathon with the goal of providing innovative solutions to the most challenging problems and create a clean environment and contribute to Clean India Mission. 


The idea was to provide solutions and ideas to various challenging problems in areas such as noise,air, water pollution, elimination of single-use of plastic, water body cleaning, waste disposal, upcycling, circular economy, plastic recycling, plastic alternatives and other related areas. 


While the clean-a-thon was formally launched towards March-end, it received a very good response from researchers, students, academia and entrepreneurs from across the nation, who came up with innovative solutions. And from the applications received, the best ones were sifted for the final round of selection. Finally, the jury narrowed to three winners. 


Gautami Chati won the hackathon while Khushbu Baid and Yalla Omkar Venkata were adjudged the first and second runners up respectively. Congratulating the winners, the director of IIT-H, Prof BS Murthy, said that IIT-H was committed to clean and green solutions by banning the use of single-use plastic inside the campus and offering unique MTech programs such as E-Waste Resource Engineering and Management. 


The winners of the hackathon will be given iTIC grants, access to pre-incubation support, mentorship, co-working spaces and a network for building successful prototypes. IIT-H hopes that more start-ups would join the clean-a-thon in coming years.
