Scientists at MIT and JNU will use jet engines to clean Delhi’s air

Tuesday, 13 December 2016


A team of experts, led by Moshe Alamaro, a scientist from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), and Iyyanki V Muralikrishna, a former professor of Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University, is pursuing an idea to improve Delhi’s winter air quality.

The scientists plan to pilot a project under which decommissioned jet engines will be placed close to a power plant.

The turbojets and turboprop engines will be directed upwards to form powerful updrafts (air moving upward) and disrupt “winter inversion”, a phenomenon during which air temperature near the ground is less than above which traps pollutants close to the ground.
