Billions worth of hydrogen is lost every year at petrochemical plants and in the process hundreds of millions of tons of CO2 are emitted. DiviGas has invented proprietary polymers to make a new hydrogen membrane, a nano-molecular polymer filter for plants, that allows for this wasted gas to be reused and for as much as 2.5% of the entire world's CO2 emission to be captured.

A >15$ billions market of hydrogen separation & avoiding >750 millions tons of CO2 per year. We are shipping our first industrial-scale on-site units by end of 2021, executing on the first tranch of the >$50m of client demand waiting for our product.
CalWave’s mission is to unlock the vast and steady carbon-free power from ocean waves. CalWave is bringing superior power and monitoring technology to market with a global reach.

SeeO2 Energy is developing an electrolyser that can produce high-value industrial gases by converting CO2 to carbon monoxide, CO2, and water to syngas (a mixture of CO and H2) and water to hydrogen. These gases are used in the green plastics, chemical, petrochemical, and metal-processing industries, but they are currently produced primarily from fossil sources.

SeeO2's technology, which is built on solid oxide electrolysis cells and a proprietary high-performance, low-cost electrocatalyst material, is uniquely tolerant of impurities such as sulfur, allowing the use of CO2 from power plants and other combustion processes, thus capturing and utilizing these emissions before they are emitted to the atmosphere as a greenhouse gas.
Skypull is developing an altitude wind power system based on a fully autonomous drone that captures the energy from the strong, abundant and constant altitude winds through a ground-based generator. Skypull has proprietary, high-efficiency and resilient airframe that makes it more deployable and versatile than its competitors.
V-Flow Tech’s energy storage solution is a uniquely designed, long-lasting and reliable product for the utility and renewable energy industry. The battery works through the continuous reduction and oxidation reaction between the vanadium redox couples with no detrimental issues with the cross-mixing of the redox couples. Due to the unique setup, the electrolyte has no degradation and the battery provides stable performance over 20 years.
