Team ALOK won its second National Award for Innovation by the Government of India for its agriculture application - UvNox Mulch. Winning first place, the award was conferred to Mr. Vikram Bhadauria, Director ALOK, by the Honourable Union Cabinet Minister, Kalraj Mishra in the presence of Union MSME Ministers of State, Sh. Haribhai Parthibhai Chaudhary and Sh. Giriraj Singh at the Pravasi Bharatiya Kendra, New Delhi on June 27, 2017.
ALOK’s UvNox Mulch masterbatch was invented at India’s first R&D lab for masterbatches, ALOK Technology Incubation Centre (ATIC) and is a testimony to the Government’s flagship ‘Make in India’ initiative. It is a revolutionary solution for the Indian agriculture market, designed to add material durability to mulch films produced in the country. UvNox Mulch is customized to withstand seasonal climatic fluctuations with high agrochemical resistance which protects the final produce from unwanted contamination and damage. The additives used in the making of UvNox Mulch are almost 40% cheaper and at par with globally available solutions.
ALOK’s proprietary UvNox solution works on the principle of absorbing, reflecting or refracting damaging UV-A Rays, minimizing the degradation of the plastic molecule, and has varied applications for the packaging and automotive sectors also.

Successes of 2016
Keeping innovation at the heart of all our business practices, this happens to be ALOK’s second National Award for Innovation in consecutive years. In 2016, ALOK was recognized for two solutions - LumaNex and ThermoFlux.
LumaNex works on the concept of diffusing harsh light into a softer form, without sacrificing the lumen intensity of the LED. This not only prevents damages to the eyes caused by unfiltered LED light, but also saves energy through superior light transmission.
ThermoFlux evenly distributes heat generated from a device to improve performance and service life. It addresses the issue of heat build-up in electronics, appliances, lighting, automotive, and industrial products. Alok, through its sustained efforts, is on a mission to serve millions of India farmers.
As we continue to ‘ADD GOOD’, join us and be a part of this success story.
