Executive Summary: Agastya Buoyant Pvt Ltd, an ISO 9001:2015 certified Startup Company has gained expertise in design and development of inflatable technology for different field of applications in India. The company has its operational activities in and around Kolkata, West Bengal. In the process of urbanization & industrialisation, high skyscrapers and underwater tunnels are built rapidly which in turn is creating an imbalance within the ecosystem, destroying our water bodies such as ponds, lakes, rivers and even sea. Water bodies all across the state are getting highly polluted by municipal solid wastes and floating trashes after idol immersion. Every year nearly 18 tons of solid waste is dumped in Hooghly River alone, through various nullahs, canals etc. Lakes and ponds are also getting dried up in turn and India being a tropical country; this is leading to profuse growth of water hyacinths and floating weeds. Agastya Buoyant has developed Trash Boom which helps to control the floating solid waste as well as regulate the growth of weeds in water bodies, effectively and efficiently. They have also designed Underwater Lift bag for salvaging operation of sunken objects in river and sea. The same has been developed keeping in mind the need of our fishing communities. Agastya Buoyant is the only company to manufacture trash boom and underwater lift bag in India. The products are manufactured from 90% of the raw materials sourced in India to create import substitution and also custom made to suit the working condition and environment. They have already started working in Kolkata in lakes like Rabindra Sarobar and Botanical Garden. Trash booms are being used in various important lakes of Bangalore. Trash boom was used as pollution control and safety device in Ganga Sagar Mela, 2016. It has already been introduced as an integral component for cleaning Ganga. Presently, Agastya Buoyant is closely working with many salvaging companies and diving training institutes, across the country, providing training on use of underwater lift bags. Apart from reducing water pollution, Agastya Buoyant is pioneering indigenized R&D in inflatable technology for various other uses such as Disaster Management, Aerial Surveillance & Biogas Generation, and are also aiming to explore new application areas like Defence & Space Technologies.
