Dozens of children in India die from eating school lunch. On July 16th, 2014, dozens of children in the village of Dharmasati Gandaman in India died after eating a school lunch contaminated with an insecticide. It is believed that the insecticide was deliberately added to the meal as a form of sabotage. The incident sparked protests across India and prompted the Indian government to introduce stricter food safety regulations. The incident also highlighted the need for better food safety standards in India's school lunch program, which serves millions of children across the country.
One major problem with renewable energy sources like wind, solar and hydro is intermittency. This means they cannot be relied on constantly since, for example, the sun might stop shining or it might be a still, windless day. To fill gaps, users often rely on diesel generators or batteries. But diesel generators produce emissions and batteries only last for a short time. Clean-tech startup Endua says it has found the solution with its modular hydrogen generation and storage technology.
