Ashutosh Kole

Ashutosh Kole applies his expertise in mechanical engineering and product design for cleantech and printing technologies at PARC.

Within the Cleantech Innovation Program, Ashutosh played a primary role in the vision, conceptualization, and filing of the primary patent for PARC’s breakthrough clean water platform technology, Hydrodynamic Separation (HDS). Instrumental in developing the HDS technology, he is currently leading the effort in manufacturing technologies for the HDS device, as well as designing and building the HDS pilot units for specific projects. Ashutosh is also involved with the Geothermal Energy project as a mechanical engineer, overseeing experiments and responsible for in-house procurement of minerals to run successful experiments.

Ashutosh is passionate about energy conservation, social awareness, and Small Scale Industry (SSI) development in renewable energy and sustainability areas in the developing world.

Ashutosh earned his M.S. in Mechanical Engineering from The University of Texas at Arlington and his B.E. in Mechanical Engineering and HSC in Science from Shivaji University. He has one patent issued and nine patents pending.
