Executive Director, Aarshadhaatu Green Nanotechnologies India Private Limited
Er R B Karthik Aamanchi was born in Kothagudem (Andhra Pradesh, India) and is a postgraduate in aerospace engineering with a specialization in nano composites. He is pivotal in developing the world’s first clean technology process for manufacturing Nano materials in commercial scale along with Dr. Sastry – Director of Srimaharshi Research Institute of Vedic Technology. He co-Founded Aarshadhaatu Green Nanotechnologies India Private Limited company which manufactures Nano Materials in Energy- Efficient, Eco-Friendly and Economical routes. He is pivotal in bringing out the anti-fouling and anti-corrosive coatings for marine vehicles using Nano Copper. He is keenly involved in the activities of Aarsha Research Lab in developing nano applications such as antibacterial fabrics, nano-based water purification systems, nano gas/chemical sensors, etc. He also published papers in international journals and has one Indian and international patent to his credit. He is also a member of the group to receive the Indian Innovation Initiative Award, bestowed by the Department of Science and Technology, Government of India.
The company has conceived and developed a green manufacturing process for producing nano materials on a commercial scale. Currently no such process or company exists which can manufacture nano materials on a large scale. The innovation involves zero synthetic chemicals, zero effluents and minimal power consumption with reactions happening at room temperatures which reduces carbon foot print significantly. The present technique eliminates heavy water consumption, higher temperatures and greatly helps in reducing the capital as well as operating costs. Other advantages are space conservation, social impact and reduction in GHG emissions. If this process is adopted to manufacture nano materials worldwide, there will be a 50-60 % of reduction in energy/water consumption with significant economic advantage.
