7.Prebiotic Oligosaccharide for Gastrointestinal Health: Dr. G. ShyamSunder Reddy
Dr. Reddy is producing a prebiotic oligosaccharide by chemo-enzymatic process.
Xylooligosaccharides (XOS) are β-1-4 linked xylose units. Short chain XOS, considered as microfiber prebiotic sugars. XOS cannot be digested or absorbed in the upper colon. They reach the large intestine and help in the proliferation of healthy Bifidobacteria phylum Bacteroidetes, which out-compete unhealthy Firmicutes. XOS have been reported to exhibit higher prebiotic efficacy than the currently used fructooligosaccharides (FOS) and galactooligosacchrides (GOS).
The prebiotic oligosacchrides results in higher population of probiotics producing beneficial short chain fatty acids SCFA , which leads to cascading effects like the colonocytes health, mineral absorption, anti-inflammatory, anti-diabetic, anticancer, immuno-modulatory, cholesterol, obesity and pH maintenance etc. Once produced XOS can be added like salt and pepper to the foods and feel no guilt of not having enough microfiber in the food and save your digestive system and overall health. The prebiotic oligosaccharides are also added to poultry and animal feed as supplements to enrich the nutritional value. Hence, there is a huge demand for these prebiotic oligosacchrides in India and abroad. However, there are a few Indian companies such as Tata Chemicals and Lactose India Ltd manufacture prebiotic oligosaccharides. However, these companies manufacture only FOS and GOS. There are no manufacturers of XOS in India. To meet the requirement of Indian market, XOS are imported from other countries. XOS can be cost effective since, the raw material is low cost agricultural lignocellulosic waste and the recommended daily intake dose is about 4 folds lesser than the level of FOS and GOS. Hence, development of a technology to produce XOS from these lignocellulosic materials would reduce the demand-supply gap in Indian oligosaccharide market. Towards this a technology process for XOS production has been optimized at lab scale in IIT Madras.
8.Let’s FARM(You Grow Healthy, We Take Care): Mr. Harsh Dangayach

6. Kuldeep Khatri: GreenShala Project
is using traditional protocols in organic farming.
Thousands of years ago, agriculture was practiced without the use of artificial chemicals. With the advent of chemical pesticides came the ‘pesticide era’.
new agricultural techniquesbeing beneficial in the short term had serious
longer term side effects such as soil compaction, erosion, and declines in
overall soil fertility, along with health concerns about toxic chemicals
entering the food supply .Remedy to these side effects was sought by going
for organic farming practices. Organic farming is a system which eludesthe use
of synthetic inputs (such as fertilisers, pesticides, hormones, feed, etc.) and
to the utmostextent depends upon crop rotations, crop residues, animal manures,
off-farm organic waste and biological system of nutrient mobilisation and plant
Kuldeep Khatri under the name “GREENSHALA”is implementing organic farming practices for growing various seasonal vegetables. He believes “The more organic and natural the product, the safer and healthier it is, for us and for the environment”He is also encouraging people for organic farming; disseminating low-cost technologies and skill development of local youth and students of Gram Vidhyapith.

2. L.R. Ravindranath:Ionic Movement Based Desalinator
He is using desalination method by electrolysis and flow down processes to reduce salinity in water. The high saline water i.e. the feed water enters intothe system along with the salts. When it reaches the junction ofthe flow split, the water starts flowing into both directions ofupward and downward.
When the power supply has given the salts in the water dissociates into charged ions, i.e. positively charged cations and negatively charged anions These charged ions tend to move towards the oppositely charged electrode, since the electrodes are fixed in the downward flow pathway all the ion diverted into the downward flow as the result of diversion of ions, the upward flow left free from ions, in this way upward water desalinated which is collected as desalinated product water. The diverted ions in the downward flow are attracted by the electrodes are drained by gravitational force, some anions viz..Cl NO 2 , NO 3 , CO 3 , HCO 3 etc. liberated as a gas at the anode which escapes through the vent gas open at the top of the system. The drained water containing remaining ions can be filtered off and re circulated along with the feed water. As mentioned above there are some changes made on the structure of the electrode, Current-voltage regulation circuit. And yet being modeled
