Pandey said, "I congratulate the students for the setting up the unit. They have prepared a wonderful project for the further utilisation of agro wastes, especially the waste generated from Soyabean. They have prepared a commendable unit for the further use of soybean straw in industries. It will save our environment and increase the farmers' income."
One of the girls who set up the unit, Khushi Sharma said, "It is a matter of great pleasure that today our startup has been inaugurated. We use soybean straw and flowers, which are, otherwise, waste, to make incense sticks. In the coming days, we will manufacture new products by using the agricultural waste of the farmers."
Another student, Saloni Porwal said, "The name of our startup unit is 'The woman agro waste' and 11 girls are involved in it. We will work hard and try to move ahead. We will control the pollution and continue our chain." Another startup member Nishita Saxena said, "I am very happy today. We use the straw which farmers used to burn, leading to pollution. We'll ensure that the waste isn't burned and the farmers are benefitted."
