  • Iron Nutrient Particles to Seed Algae (Phytoplankton) Growth

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective:

    Background: Algae are responsible for converting carbon dioxide into oxygen. However more than 20% of the world\\\'s oceans lack algae growth. The essential nutrient that is lacking in the algae-deficient surface waters is iron. However this iron must be (i) on the surface so that the algae can convert carbon dioxide to oxygen via photosynthesis and (ii) biologically available so that algae can use it. Technology Description: This technology describes the composition of and the method of production for water-buoyant particles that contain bioavailable iron.

  • Carbon-negative nanoparticle production

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective:

    Carbon Upcycling Technologies is at an early stage of developing a process that sequesters carbon from CO2 in the form of a modified graphene product. The process itself requires a concentrated CO2 stream(such as the waste gas from coal fired power generation facilities refineries and other processing plants)as well as another solid carbon feedstock such as graphite or coal. Active carbon sites are generated on the solid carbon feedstock by repeatedly breaking molecular bonds on the solid. The active carbon reacts with the gaseous CO2 molecule.

  • Climate Friendly Childbirths

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective:

    Nitrous oxide is used during 80 per cent of childbirths. This gas is a green-house gas 310 times stronger than carbon-dioxide and one kilogram that is emitted into the atmosphere is equivalent to 1500 kilometres of driving a car. Region Skåne, the regional health care management organization of southern Sweden has installed equipment from the company Nordic Gas Cleaning for separating the nitrous oxide into oxygen and nitrogen at all of its five hospitals with birth clinics. This has not only reduced emissions by 99 per cent.
