ABOUT

-
Innovation with great impact potential is being developed all around the world. We can clearly see increased investments in the area and we start to see game changing growth. However, as we are dealing with big global challenges such as climate and water, there is a great need to speed up the international growth of these solutions. Simply put, we need the impact globally. This opens for a great business growth potential. 
Cleantech Scandinavia has for years brought Nordic cleantech companies to the North American market. We have hosted showcase events in Boston, Toronto, Silicon Valley and New York etc. Companies from Canada and the US has also visited the Cleantech Capital Days that we have been hosting in the Nordics. The events have always been well received and many doors have been opened.
With the Atlantic Bridge events we want to continue to build on this and become more hands on. The idea is to introduce 10 Nordic cleantech companies to a North American ”panel” of investors, industrials and others. These will give feedback on the potential of a certain innovation on the North American market. This input will be used to prepare for a ”hit the ground running” scenario when it is possible to travel again. A few days later we will introduce 10 North American cleantech companies to a European ”panel” of investors, industrials and others. We will work with several North American and European partners to achieve international growth.

ClearFlame Engine Technologies is breaking the bond between the diesel engine and diesel fuel, accelerating the path to true emissions reduction for the heavy-duty truck and off-highway markets. Our technology enables engine manufacturers to meet global emissions regulations by using decarbonized liquid fuels available around the world. Our technology also lowers costs by eliminating the need for complex, expensive aftertreatment technologies, without compromising the practicality or performance of traditional diesel engines. For more information, visit www.clearflameengines.com, and follow us on LinkedIn and Twitter (@ClearFlameEng).

Emulate is an American-Swedish startup, commercializing an energy management platform based on one of the founder’s postdoc research at MIT. Their cloud platform allows electricity retailers to connect to their customers heat pumps and electric vehicles and manage these fleets of flexible loads via a battery-equivalent control system. Emulate’s vision is to empower citizens to become an active part in the energy transition by having their devices supporting renewable power generation.

IFS develops advanced fluid heating equipment to unlock industrial productivity and decarbonize manufacturing operations. Our ‘middle-out’ fluid heating platform heats flowing fluids 8-10x more effectively than conventional, fossil-based heating that heats from the ‘outside-in.’ We deploy our skidded, modular units to existing manufacturing sites and bolt-on to existing production assets to improve processing performance. Scaled implementations avoid up to 4,000MT CO2e per year and unlock $500k USD of additional production per line. Customers include manufacturers in the food & beverage, snacks, and specialty chemical sectors, with projects underway heating fluids ranging from maple syrup to monomers.

Leading Edge Equipment Technologies is developing a disruptive alternative to the traditional wafer production process which uses large single-crystal ingots.  Our patented Floating Silicon Method (FSM ™) process makes single crystal ribbons of silicon which are then laser cut and prepared for down-stream solar cell processing steps. By eliminating the need for wire sawing and the subsequent reduction in raw material usage, our process not only saves cost, it also has a major impact on CO2 emissions. With full industry adoption, Leading Edge can reduce industry-wide CO2 emissions by 40%, saving over 1 Gton per year of CO2.  And with lower oxygen content than traditional silicon wafers, the FSM process not only reduces silicon wafer cost and CO2 emissions, but it can increase module output power by up to 7%.

Lydian Labs aims to accelerate the decarbonization of the chemical industry by electrifying the chemical production process. Using scalable additive and subtractive manufacturing techniques (e.g. selective laser melting, dealloying), Lydian Labs is developing catalytic heating elements that use electricity (renewable, when available) as the main source of process energy. Concentrating the energy input onto a high surface area, monolithic catalyst structure allows for large advances in process intensification and energy efficiency, leading to a decrease in reactor volumes of up to 100x. This platform technology enables a profitable, industry-wide shift away from fossil fuel combustion-based heat, leading to CO2 reductions of up 1.3 GtCO2eq per year.

Power to Hydrogen is accelerating the transition to a clean energy future by dramatically improving the economics of renewably derived green hydrogen and energy storage. We do this with Clean Energy Bridge™, a reversible electrolyzer and fuel cell that offers a number of key advantages including high pressure operation, low system cost, and high asset utilization. Based on proprietary technology, a single unit delivers multiple services – high pressure, high purity hydrogen, high purity oxygen, peak shaving, backup power and microgrid/grid resilience. NASA and Shell are supporting development to apply tech to lunar energy storage and offshore wind+hydrogen respectively.

Through our patented technology, Trillium Renewable Chemicals is replacing oil and gas with biorenewable feedstocks in the manufacturing of green, drop-in molecules like acrylonitrile and propylene glycol. As the worldwide demand for these chemicals increases, we’re providing a green alternative that reduces carbon emissions, eliminates long-range transport of hazardous materials, stabilizes pricing and relies on renewable raw materials.

NORDIC PRESENTING COMPANIES

Elonroad have developed a high-tech electrified road system that enables continuous charging through a conductive rail integrated into the asphalt. This retrofittable, cost-effective solution enables a topped-up battery at a much lower capacity and therefore weight, initiating a positive loop of downscaling the vehicles (less weight=smaller/lighter drivetrain components). It is particularly suitable to local public busses, e-taxis, short- to medium-distance trucks and similar transport/carrier solutions. Fast-charging (on-the-go) and charging services are growing business fields due to the high future demand of the electrified vehicle fleet. Furthermore, the system encounters growing interest for stationary charging, e.g. at homes, ports, delivery warehouses etc.

Swedish design meets bio-based sustainable buildings – Ekolution are a complete provider that develops, produces, sells, and installs sustainable bio-based composites, building systems and related innovative building materials. Considering 40% of Swedish energy goes to cooling and heating houses their 100%organic and toxin&chemically-free, recyclable, renewable, free-breathing, anti-mold&bacteria, sound-deadening AND CO2-negative hemp-based insulation panels cannot come at a better time.
Ekolution is about to launch a full ready-made biobased modular house system, rewriting hat is possible in the B2B and B2C sustainable building market. The business has grown organically thus far and stands at the threshold of sky-rocketting into large scales and international markets – the bio-based material construction market will grow to 250 billion until 2027. Mark their name, Ekolution will be part of it.

Kasi Tech have developed a dual hybrid system called NESS, with a centre section that slots seamlessly between OME generator and turbocharger systems and can provide additional e-boost. This technology for combustion engine can cost-effectively reduce real CO2 impact on vehicle fleet average. This solution supports all current OEM product functions, such as start/stop, brake and waste heat energy recovery, mechanical & electrical supercharging, and turbocharging. NESS is 100% retrofittable yielding 13-18% fuel and resultant emissions savings at 70% lower production cost than competing solutions. The transformation towards a fully electric mobility world will take decades and even then, there will be combustion/based engines, for example hydrogen or efuel based. KASI provide both a “bridging technology” as well as a inexpensive and easily-fitted reduction for fleets of vehicles using ICEs in the future.

Rebase have developed their own platform and AI-based data analysis API to make weather forecasts more precise. Using databases from many different weather services the system can help grid providers, smart grid owners, energy aggregators, high-consumption users (with need to match their PPA-stipulated terms), renewable energy producers, and “middleman” agents dealing on switch markets with increasing efficiency of the interplay between supply and demand of energy.
Intermittency control is key with the growing renewable energy and smart distribution markets – forecasts will be up to 20% more precise which enables higher margins to be built in the overall market. Furthermore, they enable using AI decision agents that support the client in making the right call at the right time; these services in particular have a highly versatile future in an increasingly complex market that, to run effectively, will need to be machine-analyzed. Furthermore, Rebase have started to develop inner-city renewable energy planning based on their weather forecasts.

Retex has developed, in collaboration with large manufacturing/chemical companies, the process and machines for reprocessing textile, plastic and rubber waste (from e.g. construction or fashion industry) into a replacement for orthodox construction panelling. The panels are 100% water and mold resistant, 100% fire-resistant, 100% recyclable, 100% eco-friendly, no pollutants or toxic chemicals, have a low CO2 impact in production and the plan is to process 1 million cubic meters of panels within 5 years freeing over 300,000 tons of textile waste every year, equal to more than 10% of the total waste generated in the EU.
Of 2 million tons of textile waste, 95 % could be recycled and the times are calling for high-impact technology to address on of the most pressing issues of our time.

Oisann´s Waterfountain 10 is an unmanned, modular desalination system that can store up to 30 m³ and produce up to 100 m³ per day. As a floating, movable platform with a submerged reverse osmosis system the benefits yielded are (compared to industry standard):
– No chemicals required
– 50% reduction in operating costs
– 35% reduction in construction costs
– Powered by renewable energy (old off-shore windparks)
– Over 90% reduction in land required
– Over 95% reduction in brine salinity
The tech has the potential to revolutionize global water supplies and solve a hidden yet highly damaging waste and wastewater problem. Moreover, the technology can provide industrial process water, e.g. low saline ballast tank water for large ships, cleaning water for industrial operations, and can be added almost anywhere due to its low spatial requirements.

Spotscale specialises in rendering 3D images – taken by drones – of buildings for measuring, planning and annotation of information. Moreover, their unique 3D Thermal models make it easy to inspect large properties for energy leakage. They make it possible to see what the eye cannot see. This can be heat leakage or cooling leakage. This is a valuable tool to find areas for renovation and estimate the required cost for retrofit and damage control. Clients can virtually modify and plan their buildings, and have access to the data via cloud services from everywhere.

Univrses have developed a set of software modules that can be integrated into robotic platforms and autonomous systems. We call these the 3DAI™ Engine. Each module in 3DAI™ Engine enables capability that contributes to increasing the perception capabilities and the autonomy of a system. 3DAI™ Engine comprises all the necessary components to enable autonomy: precise and reliable localisation of a vehicle, detection and tracking of nearby objects and semantic understanding of the environment and its evolution.
The 3DAI™ City platform is a cost-effective and scalable answer to the growing demand for data about the urban environment. It is made accessible by deploying a smartphone on a vehicle already operating in the city. Special hardware or sensing vehicles, which only add congestion, cost and pollution, are not needed.
