Green Cracker Patents for an Environment Friendly Diwali

Happy Diwali

“We Wish Our Readers, Followers and Well Wishers a a Very Happy, Environment Friendly Deepavali!”

Green and Eco Friendly Crackers

In 2018, the Supreme Court banned the manufacture and sale of fire crackers, which are not green or environment friendly through an interim order. The Court stated in the order that the Government must grant licenses to make and sell only green crackers, and that sale of non-green crackers or those that are not environment friendly are not permitted during Diwali celebrations. Crackers with at least thirty to thirty five percent less air and noise pollution were said to be green or environment friendly. NATIONAL ENVIRONMENTAL ENGINEERING RESEARCH INSTITUTE (NERI), a CONSTITUENT LABORATORY OF CSIR, has been working on developing green crackers since January, 2018, and claims to have developed cracker formulations that produce thirty percent less particulate matter. Though efforts have been made by the Government to encourage cracker manufacturers and sellers to use the said formulations, those efforts seem to have been only partially successful. Several news reports during the last three days indicate that there is a shortage in availability of green crackers despite the intent to make them widely available for this year’s Diwali celebrations.

Green Cracker Patents

We went through patent applications published during the last three years using keyword searches with the objective of finding environment friendly cracker inventions for which patent applications have been filed in India. To our surprise, we did not find many patent applications, and could not identify any applications filed by NERI or CSIR. The inventions we found relate to green crackers, eco friendly diyas, and protection devices. Some interesting applications are listed hereunder. They give some ideas about what can be done to make Deepavali green and environment friendly.

1. Invention Title A METHOD FOR PREPARING CRACKER SHAPED CHOCOLATE AND A PRODUCT THEREOF

Flower pot shaped chocolateLakshmi bomb shaped chocolate

Application Number: 201821031994
Application Filing Date: 27/08/2018
Applicants and Inventors: Dinesh Bhangdiya and Ruchika Bhangdiya

Abstract

A method for preparing a chocolate in form of a cracker, said method comprising the steps of: heating chocolate compound; adding ingredients to said compound; putting a mixture of chocolate compound and the ingredients in a chocolate die; cooling and solidifying said mixture in a chocolate mould; and demoulding the mixture or chocolate.

Status: Published.

2. Invention Title: MOLECULAR DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT OF ADVANCED, HIGH PERFORMANCE AND RELIABLE GREEN EXPLOSIVES.

Application Number: 201611002646
Application Filing Date:  25/01/2016
Inventors: DR.SUBRATA GHOSH, Pankaj Gaur, SUNIL KUMAR, DR.PREM FELIX, SAGARIKA DEV, and DR. PRAMOD SONI.

Abstract

The invention related to the design and development of polytriazole based dendriticnitrate esters. The molecular framework of the motifs was engineered to ensure their promising energetic performance. The presence of triazole as a core of this framework not only provided the thermal stability and low impact sensitivity but also responsible for their nitrogen richness. Simultaneously, decoration of triazole with polynitrate esters played an appreciable role in enhancement of their oxygen balance, density and detonation performances. In summary, the energetic motifs with dendritic molecular architecture and enhanced performance were synthesized by adopting a microwave assisted user as well as eco-friendly synthetic protocol.

3. Invention Title: POLLUTION FREE ELECTRONIC CRACKER 

Application Number: 2500/DEL/2006

Application Filing Date: 20/11/2006

Inventor: MANOJ PATHAK

Abstract

This invention discloses the pollution  free cracker which is a series of crackers is useful for the  society  to repel the  Air &  Sound  pollution. The device  is an electromechanical product with sensor and  microcontroller / timer based  flasher & switching circuit (Al, A2, and A3). The  circuit  controls the emission  of light (Dl, D2) along with  audio  frequency  generators ( A4, Bl, B2,) to  create  various effects of light, rotation  and various  sound effect in a  synchronized  manner with the help of a  d.c. motor and appropriate disc & reflector (Cl, C2, & F1,F2,) attached in the product. This product is  used as Sparkler  In which  (A1),(A3), (A4), (E1),(E2), (B1),(B2),& (Dl), (D2) & (HI)  are working together in a synchronized  manner. In  another form  , this product is working  as  Chakra In which (H2), (Bl), (Al), (A3), (A4), (Dl), (D2), (El), (E2), (Cl), & (C2) are working together.

Application Status: Abandoned.

4. Invention Title: ECO-FRIENDLY-BIO TREATED CRACKERS

Application Number: 201841045700
Application Filing Date: 04/12/2018
Inventor: Dr.V.K. EVANJELENE

Abstract

The invention unveils formulations for toxic free crackers that are developed by addition of natural sources. Fireworks are the combination of chemicals, during combustion reaction it produces different gas. These gases affect the environment by creating pollution. This has paved the way for Eco-friendly Bio treated crackers for minimizing the pollutants. These newly developed ones are made by stuffing the natural sources that reduces the pollution, and minimizes the health problems and other environmental issues. “Eco-friendly Bio treated crackers will check.pollution and thereby sparkling festival of lights will continue. At the same time the labours of the fire crackers industry can meet out their daily bread.

Application Number: 201721043812
Application Filing Date: 06/12/2017
Inventors: ANAND and Jayashree

Abstract

The present invention relates to lamp made using a novel composition based on Panchagavya with the combination of leaves used in traditional herbal medicine for making lamp suitable for lighting at temples, homes. The present invention more particularly relates a lamp which gets burnt completely and leaves behind useful ash/residue/bhasma which can be used in a number of useful applications.

Note: The abstract has been reproduced from the application AS IS.

6. Invention Title: ECO FRIENDLY CAMPHOR DIYA.

Application Number: 201621028924
Application Filing Date: 25/08/2016
Inventor: Amit

Abstract

By the present invention, the Eco Friendly Camphor Diyas are made from composition of chemicals used for water purification and contain Alum (Potassium alum), Sodium Chloride and few other chemicals known for its properties to purify water. It has majorly chemicals as Camphor, Alum, Chlorine, Disinfectants and others which are brought together to make a new product. The chemicals are heated together and put in moulds of the required shapes and then allowed to settle. In a semi solid state the Camphor is added in the middle which acts as wick having the shape of flame. The Diya is then coated from all sides with geru to give it a natural look of earthen Diyas. The present invention thus gives eco friendly product. Camphor is used while worshipping since ages. The Diya contains Camphor which will burn for a while and after the Diya is floated on water, pure camphor will burn completely leaving no residue and when mixed with water its chemicals will purify the water.

Application Status: Post Examination Amendments filed.

Environment Friendly Fire Works

Several green fire work inventions have been patented in USA, China and other countries, which can be adopted for Diwali celebrations. Hopefully, we will see much greener crackers, diyas and celebrations during next year’s Diwali.

Happy Deepavali Once Again from Team BananaIP.
