Cohort five

  • Carbon Cell

    A carbon-negative, non-toxic, fully biodegradable replacement for polystyrene and other polymer-based insulating foams, made with biochar.

  • Circular Regen

    Developing a methodology to drastically reduce carbon emissions in the built environment by using sustainable materials and designing for disassembly so that resources can have multiple lives.

  • CLIP Energy

    Powering down home energy use with smart sensors and AI.

  • Decarbonite

    Developing carbon negative, non-toxic, and fully biodegradable fabrication materials as a radically green alternative to particle and fibre boards.

  • Epicue

    Heat stress management for workers in high heat, via low cost epifluidic sweat monitoring.

  • Faeba

    Identify and scale unsung bio-textiles for the fashion industry and beyond. We achieve game changing carbon reductions through material innovation and our unique end-to-end network.

  • Fibe

    A materials start-up developing the world’s first textile fibres out of potato harvest waste.

  • Guerilla.Co

    Guerrilla is a retrofittable device enabling roadside drains to capture particulate pollutionwhich would otherwise be washed into the ocean, without using any electricity or moving parts while maintaining high flow rates.

  • Ki Hydrogen

    A deep-tech venture developing novel waste-to-hydrogen technology that produces green hydrogen using 75% less energy compared with water electrolysis.

  • Nium

    Nium uses nanotechnology to decarbonise chemistry, beginning with the most polluting chemical industrial production on earth: ammonia production.

  • PulpaTronics

    Recyclable carbon-based RFID tags made to preserve more of our world's resources.

  • Samudra Oceans

    Developing AI and Robotics to scale seaweed aquaculture.

  • Tazaar

    Bridges the gap between manufacturers and consumers with a digital service record that offers product traceability and customer engagement throughout the product lifecycle.

  • Vuala

    Vuala X1 makes food waste recycling easy by automatically separating food waste from other wastes, generating raw material for energy production on site; saving 95% on logistics and labour costs, and 75% lower carbon emissions.

  • ZoriTex

    Optimising textile waste sorting – combining vision and AI-powered technologies to drive circularity in fashion textile recycling.
