As we prepare for this year’s Nordic Camp, we wanted to take the time to reflect on and celebrate the 11th edition Nordic Cleantech Open (NCO) winners! We recognize the long road all our applicants took to arrive on the NCO podium, fueled by perseverance and their commitment to creating a cleaner environment. This competition continues to stand as an invaluable platform to highlight companies making critical headway in the transition to a low carbon reality.

From 137 companies to 25, to 10, to 3, the Nordic Camp winners have gone through multiple rounds of pitching and jury assessment during our past NCO in 2022. At last, we proudly present Cogo coming in first place, followed by Onego Bio Ltd. in second, and AirForestry in third!

Egg is one of the world’s most used animal proteins and difficult to replace with alternative ingredients. Cellular agriculture uses microorganisms and bioreactors instead of traditional animal farming and can provide significant environmental improvements compared to the animal-based protein production. Onego Bio is a Finnish biotech company producing animal-free egg proteins with a cellular agriculture method called precision fermentation. Its mission is to rethink eggs and give people access to sustainable, delicious and healthy animal-free food.

AirForestry’s groundbreaking technology makes it possible to thin out the forests in a completely new way, namely from the air with high-capacity drones. Through our innovative thinning, we contribute to reducing carbon dioxide emissions from forestry work while increasing the forest’s ability to sequester carbon.
