Greater Noida : Although sawdust burning stoves have been in existence for a long time (I have myself used them way back in 1960s), nothing much has been done about the use of the same as a device to address the Environmental issues of Smog in Delhi, which is a regular occurrence every year during this time of the year.
A major amount of the blame goes to the burning of the agricultural residue (Parali in local language) in fields by farmers in the adjoining geography.

A near smokeless burning of Parali was demonstrated by me today at a village Khajpur in Gautam Buddha Nagar district of UP.

The Parali problem was brought out by a student of XI class, Ms. Lavanya Varshney of Pragyan Public School, Jewar village, . Very involved and active support was provided by her and Chaudhary Akash Singh of the Khajpur village. Akash Singh is also an incubatee at the Atal Incubation Center in BIMTECH. These two members facilitated the demo and helped in arranging the local makeshift materials and local logistics in the village today. Without their help this would not have been possible at all.

Seemingly it is smokeless, as far as visibility is concerned, as can be seen from the video. However, a scientific study needs to be carried out to establish that it really does give a smokeless (visible and otherwise) flame.
