There are about 1.3 million three wheelers currently operating in Sri Lanka. These three wheelers use petrol or diesel to run. 1.3 million of three wheelers do severe damage to the environment. We want to give an acceptable solution for this growing environmental problem in Sri Lanka.
As a dedicated environment protection organization, we couldn’t be happier than the day when we first introduced our own, first ever of its kind flagship invention, the “Solar Malli” (Eco-Tuk Tuk) to the public on the 08th of July 2020. As a result of our hard work for nearly one year, and our resources on the “Solar Malli” (Eco-Tuk Tuk) had its birth, as a futuristic green industrial project as a foundation to help Sri Lanka. Our primary objective in this engagement is in three angles:
A) How to help to protect our environment quality?
B) How to help the three-wheeler community to increase their income & to get them strategically engaged in the environment protection process?
C) How to help the national economy of Sri Lanka with “Solar Malli” (Eco-Tuk Tuk)?
Our prototype byword turned out as a versatile product innovation as an ultimate ‘contraption’; a technologically advanced efficacious answer in one of Sri Lanka’s frequently contentious topics (three-wheeler sub-culture in the country).
On average, a petrol three-wheeler might discharge up to 50g of Co2 per every 1km run, and other harmful greenhouse gasses, unhealthy for human respiration out to the atmosphere. Thus, a petrol three-wheeler when it runs a 20km (averaged) distance per day, potentially, a 1.0 kgs of Co2 would be released! Likewise, in a period of 365 days this figure might reach a 365 kg mark. Therefore, 365 days of 1,300,000 three-wheelers can release a staggering 474,500 tons of Co2 to the atmosphere. Save our Sri Lanka (SOS) believes that “Solar Malli” (Eco-Tuk Tuk) is a reliable answer to address the numerous problems associated with the three-wheeler culture in Sri Lanka.
