The 25 selected companies bring promising and ready-to-scale innovations and market proposition, and they were selected out of 137 applicants by a jury of about 50 international members from venture capital firms, multinational industries, the utility sector, development agencies and the public investment scene.

The selected 25 companies that will participate in the next phases offer carbon capture technology, optimization and digitalization of transport, logistics and waste management, upcycled and sustainable aluminium and rare earth metals. They also bring several breakthrough innovations to revolutionize the animal-based food industry, the oil-chemical industry with seaweed and algae and improved light harvesting technology and waste to energy solution.
