Enhanced energy recovery from natural geothermal energy resources, and clean water restoration and protectionThe CaSil Technology enables the extraction of significantly more “green heat energy” and the generation of more electricity from a geothermal resource, by eliminating the worldwide silica deposition problem in geothermal resource utilisation. The silica is transformed into a proprietary nanostructured calcium silicate material used in environmentally beneficial applications.
Streamlined and Standardized Processes to Analyze Microplastics in WaterMicroplastic is a contaminant of emerging concern. Its occurrence, fate, and transport in water are not well understood due to the limitation of testing procedures that are time-consuming and not standardized. This research addresses the current need of establishing a streamlined and standardized procedure to better identify microplastics in water.
Robotic routing for uncrewed finfish farmingRadmantis develops innovation for uncrewed fish handling in order (1) to enhance production, biosecurity, and resilience in fish farming operations, and (2) to selectively harvest invasives from natural habitats threatened by them.
Carbon-neutral construction materialsOur innovative biochar construction materials enable green revolution by significantly reducing the use of natural resources and emissions of greenhouse gases. The materials feature superior performance e.g thermal insulation; noise reduction; lightweight; air purification, self-cleaning, etc. This will help tackling challenges concerning local standards for the construction industry, assessment protocols of technical performance.
Advanced Pre-treatment of Biomass, Waste, Coal Materials for the Production of Energy, Liquid Fuels, Chemicals, Materials and FertilizersPre-treats biomass, oils, municipal and industrial sludge and solid waste as well as low quality coals for use in high-temperature combustion, pyrolysis, and gasification systems to produce clean energy, H2, chemicals, materials, liquid fuels, pharmaceuticals, food additives at a fraction of the cost required today without emissions, and ash-related problems.
