Karan Jerath – Innovator
When the 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill occurred, Karan was determined to explore solutions to save the ocean and the environment. He designed a device that can collect oil, gas and water spewing from a broken well on the sea floor.
The device won him the 2015 Intel International Science and Engineering Fair award. He was the youngest honoree on the 2016 Forbes Magazine’s list of ‘30 under 30’ in the energy sector.
He was also selected as one of the UN Young Leaders for the Sustainable Development Goals to help protect the marine ecosystems. Be inspired!
