Sahil Doshi, a 14-year-old Indian-American student has won the 2014 Discovery Education 3M Young Scientist Challenge for his innovative, eco-friendly battery design that could help lower harmful greenhouse gases.

A ninth grader from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Doshi was awarded the title of "America's Top Young Scientist", $25,000 and a student adventure trip to a destination such as Costa Rica, according to a media release.

His prototype -- the PolluCell -- converts carbon dioxide into electricity, ingeniously helping to reduce the Earth's carbon footprint while offering power for household uses and developing nations.

Over the past three months, Doshi and nine other finalists had the exclusive opportunity to work directly with a 3M scientist as they created their personal innovations as part of a summer mentorship programme.
