GREEN AWARDS WINNER 2023

Brilliant Planet

BRILLIANT PLANET

Category: Innovation

Brilliant Planet is utilizing the potential of algae to permanently and quantifiably sequester carbon at the gigaton scale.Their method is not only ten times more affordable but also ten times faster than legacy algae producers, which allows for affordable carbon removal through algae. The company’s innovative process enables vast quantities of microalgae to grow in open-air pond-based systems in coastal desert areas without the use of freshwater. By harnessing a natural process, the innovative method contributes to the health of both the oceans and the air.

Concular

CONCULAR

Category: Start-Up

Aiming to change the construction sector, which is responsible for 60% of waste and 40% of CO2 emissions worldwide, Concular is developing a digital ecosystem for circular construction. Beginning in 2012 with Restado, a marketplace to buy and sell materials from deconstruction, Concular has grown to Europe’s largest marketplace for reused materials. As this mainly reached small companies, Concular was founded in 2020 to cater to the professional actors of the construction sector. By digitizing materials in both new and existing buildings and redirecting them into new construction instead of landfilling them, Concular has created closed material loops which help to reduce global CO2 emissions by up to 15% and waste by up to 30%.

Johan Rockstroem

PROF. DR. JOHAN ROCKSTRÖM

Category: Special Award

Jeremiah Thoronka

JEREMIAH THORONKA

Category: Youngster

At the age of 17, Jeremiah Thoronka founded the start-up “Optim Energy” to tackle the challenges of energy poverty and environmental impact in his home country of Sierra Leone. The idea: To use piezoelectric materials and locally sourced energy harvesting technologies to provide energy to low-income households and schools. Piezoelectricity is gained from heat and vibrations. Optim Energy positioned its devices under the pavement, using one of the greatest natural assets of the areas where they were implemented: weather, traffic, and people. A sustainable and affordable system for low-income communities in a region where outside of the urban areas only a minority of the population has access to electricity.
