Indian wins BRICS-Young Innovator Prize

@IndiaDST
Ravi Prakash, an Indian scholar has won the 25,000 US Dollar BRICS-Young Innovator Prize for inventing an affordable indigenous milk chilling unit for smaller and marginal rural dairy farmers.

Prakash, PhD scholar of ICAR-National Dairy Research Institute (NDRI), Bengaluru, was a part of 21-member delegation sent to Brazil by the Department of Science and Technology for the 4th BRICS-Young Scientist Forum (YSF), 2019.

A Facebook post said that this technology can be used for chilling milk from the point of production by bringing down the temperature of raw milk from 37°C to 7°C within 30 minutes. It uses nano-fluid based phase change materials.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi during the 6th BRICS Summit in July 2014, had mooted the idea of youth engagement and desired to develop an innovative mechanism to engage, network and connect BRICS youth.

Subsequently, the proposal on the creation of a BRICS YSF gathered unanimous support and endorsement by the BRICS Science, Technology and Innovation Ministers in Brasilia, in March 2015.
