Having spent a year on converting the patented design into a product and conducting field trials, the Centre for Innovation and Product Development (CIPD) of KLE Technological University (KLETU) has announced the launch of a multi-purpose biomass shredder that is said to be useful for sugarcane farmers in particular.

Addressing presspersons here on Thursday, Vice-Chancellor of KLETU Ashok Shettar said that it was the first commercial product coming out of the KLETU campus and the university had entered into an MoU with a private player for commercial production. The product would be formally launched during the Krishi Mela being organised by the University of Agricultural Sciences, Dharwad, (UAS-D), he said.
