Circulus advances Plastic Waste Upcycling

Founding Year: 2019
Location: Houston, US
Industries: FMCG, Retail, Packaging
Partner with Circulus for Sustainable Packaging

Circulus is a US-based startup that produces a proprietary low-density polyethylene (LDPE) post-consumer resin, CIRCA, by upcycling plastic waste. Packaging companies use CIRCA to make sustainable consumer packaging such as plastic bags, pouches, plastic wraps, and films. Further, the startup generates minimal waste and reuses over 85% of the water used in the recycling process, reducing its carbon footprint. Circulus, thus, promotes a circular economy by upcycling plastics and keeping them out of landfills, incinerators, and oceans.

OOYOO enables Sustainable CO2 Sourcing

Founding Year: 2020
Location: Kyoto, Japan
Industries: Agriculture, Biofermentation
Collaborate with OOYOO for Portable Oxygen Concentrator Systems

Japanese startup OOYOO offers clean air technology based on gas separation for carbon dioxide capture. The startup advances portable oxygen concentrators (POCs) through its separation membrane that functions like a window allowing oxygen and nitrogen to pass through. Moreover, this membrane-based solution enables POC miniaturization, making it scalable for both small- and large-scale manufacturers. Industries that generate CO2 from natural sources use this solution to recover CO2. They sell it to agri and beverage industries, thus reducing their carbon footprint while providing a new revenue stream.

Mission Zero facilitates Low-Energy Direct Air Capture (DAC)

Founding Year: 2020
Location: London, UK
Funding: USD 5,6 M
Industry: Agriculture
Innovate with Mission Zero for High Purity CO2 Recovery

Mission Zero is a UK-based startup that develops a low-energy DAC process. The startup combines its DAC solution with an ion-selective electrochemical separation process to continuously scrub CO2 from the air and concentrate it. Moreover, Mission Zero consumes lesser energy than existing thermal regeneration approaches. Its solution also leverages existing, scaled technologies in the industrial sites such as cooling towers and electrochemical water purification. This enables further utilization of resources and improves sustainability.

Grino Water Solutions offers Solar-based Water Desalination

Cover-5-CleanTech-2022-Startups-StartUs-Insights-noresizeFounding Year: 2019
Location: Nuremberg, Germany
Industries: WaterTech, Utility
Partner with the startup for Photovoltaic-powered Reverse Osmosis

Grino Water Solutions is a German startup that enables battery-free solar-based water desalination. By eliminating the use of batteries, the startup significantly reduces the cumulative energy demand (CED) of photovoltaic-powered reverse osmosis (PVRO) systems. Further, the system is fully automated. An irradiation sensor continuously measures the available solar energy and starts the system automatically every morning as soon as the power is enough to run the system. It continuously produces water till solar energy is not enough to run the system in the evening. This way, Grino Water Solutions tackles water scarcity and enables sustainable access to fresh drinking water. The system also finds application in agriculture, hospitality, and process industries.
