Tent sustainable in sub-zero temperatures up to minus 14 degrees
Educator and innovator Sonam Wangchuk has designed a solar heated military tent for the Indian Army.
Weighing less than 30kg, the tent can accommodate 10 people, is fully portable and is sustainable in sub-zero temperatures up to minus 14 degrees. Wangchuk has used carbon neutral, instead of kerosene, thus eradicating pollution and protecting the local environment.
