Ohio Student wins Environment Friendly Innovation Award
Environment Friendly Innovation Award – At the 2022 U.S. Invention Convention Nationals competition held on June 3 at The Henry Ford in Dearborn, Michigan, eighth-grader Tarun Batchu from Ohio took home the Arrow Electronics Innovation in Electronics Award. The competition featured inventions made by K–12 children that attempted to solve real-world issues.
Batchu, who is from a nearby area of Ohio called Columbus, created a tool to lessen factory emissions of dangerous gases. Batchu’s creation, known as AES CAGED (An Environmental Solution to Acid Carbonic Gas), is made to attach to manufacturing smokestacks and use a cryogenic method to condense and trap gases. As soon as the gas attains a liquid cryogenic condition, it is stored underground and gradually moves toward carbon aquifers in the soil.

According to Batchu, AES CAGED may be automated and deployed for about $300,000 per site.
In the battle against climate change, young inventors like Tarun will be crucial. Joe Verrengia, director of corporate social responsibility at Arrow, said, “We support this new generation of inventors in their efforts to create innovative technological solutions to the world’s most pressing problems.
The Arrow Innovation in Electronics Award is a component of the organization’s Innovation in Technology awards programme, which recognizes the world’s top student innovators and emerging technologies. These innovations help people and the communities where Arrow works by turning ideas into effective and significant accomplishments.
After showcasing their innovations at regional affiliate events across the country, competitors for the Invention Convention U.S. Nationals were chosen.
