Abstract:
    Egg Shells, considered as waste, are valuable as these contain 97% CaCO₃ & 3% proteins. Cement and pharmaceutical industries are the biggest consumers of these products.Egg shells can meet these needs
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    Although very valuable yet 150,000 tons of egg shell waste a year. About 95-97% of the dry eggshell is calcium carbonate weighing 5.5 grams rest 3-5% are proteins. Both have high applications in health & industrial sector provided at very low rate by egg shells. Also it will help in recycling waste.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   Pharmaceutical and cement industries need it for cosmetics & cement production respectively. Food industries also use calcium as flavoring agent. Benefactors will have to invest a surprisingly less amount and in-return will get a inexpensive and a better quality CaCO₃ and proteins.
How will the solution works
    By simplest chemical reaction we will extract essential components from egg shells. First we will grind egg shell in grinder. Then the grinned egg shell is added into the Organic acid. Several Chemical reactions take place between egg shell and acetic acid. Glycoproteins, glycolipids and other proteins will dissolve in acetic acid and pure CaCO₃ is left at bottom. We will separate CaCO₃ by simple filtration and proteins by centrifuge machine. Preserve proteins in refrigerator.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    Our solution is different in a way that it is we are using waste material and turning it into valuable and inexpensive products than market rate of these products .We are targeting local cement, food and pharmaceutical industries by just a single time investment.
