Chip[s] Board converts Food Waste into Bioplastic

Founding Year: 2017
Location: London, UK
Partner with Chip[s] Board for Food Waste Upcycling

Chip[s] Board is a UK-based startup that converts food waste streams into bioplastics. Using potato waste from chip manufacturing companies, its technology upcycles it into sustainable circular economy materials. Parblex, the startup’s translucent pure or fiber-reinforced bioplastic, features a good surface finish and durability. The material is compatible with injection molding, 3D printing, milling, and other industrial processes, making it a suitable sustainable material for fashion and interior design.

Wimao enables Mixed Plastic Waste Recycling

Founding Year: 2016
Location: Lappeenranta, Finland
Innovate with Wimao for Waste-to-Resource Solutions

Finnish startup Wimao rematerializes waste into reusable plastic or composite products. The startup’s recycling process uses a series of thermal and mechanical operations that allow content variations and impurities in the raw material, simplifying the sorting and pre-treatment process. In addition to plastic waste, the system recycles portions of wood, paper, board fibers, various minerals, textiles, glass, carbon fibers, and different polymers. It converts them into ecological composite products with a wide range of industrial applications. Wimao’s technology is scalable, enabling municipalities and corporations to set up circular material systems.

Circular Materials enables Heavy Metal Recovery

Founding Year: 2019
Location: Cambiago, Italy
Reach out to them for Contaminant Metal Recovery

Italian startup Circular Materials develops a wastewater treatment technology. The startup’s technology recovers contaminating metals from wastewater streams and converts them to secondary raw materials without the use of any chemical reagents. The recovered materials include heavy and precious metals that act as feedstock to synthesize high-quality nanomaterial. The startup’s modular system is easy to manage and scale up and requires no capital expenditure (CAPEX). This allows mineral and chemical companies to recover metals otherwise lost to the environment as pollutants.

UP Catalyst facilitates Biowaste Valorization

Founding Year: 2019
Location: Tallinn, Estonia
Use this solution for Biomass-derived Nanomaterials

Estonian startup UP Catalyst develops a biowaste valorization method to produce sustainable carbon nanomaterials. The startup’s technology employs a simple pyrolysis process that utilizes wood-based biomass waste from wood, pulp, and paper industries. It produces a graphene-like carbon material with superior physicochemical properties in comparison to graphene obtained using conventional methods. The biomass-derived nanomaterial is an attractive material for different energy conversion systems such as fuel cells, batteries, and supercapacitors.

Zincovery makes Zero Waste Galvanized Steel

Founding Year: 2019
Location: Christchurch, New Zealand
Innovate with them to Zero Waste Zinc Production

Zincovery is a New Zealand-based startup that recycles waste acid produced during galvanized steel production. The startup’s technology separates zinc and iron oxide from the galvanizer waste acid to extract fresh acid that is reusable. The separated zinc is also reusable, preventing environmental damage from its disposal. The startup’s solution is scalable and requires no consumable inputs other than electricity. In this way, the startup ensures waste-free steel galvanization with minimal impact on the environment.
