It looks like a wine fridge, but it’s not. The Plantcube by Agrilution is a stunning solution to grow vegetables, herbs, and salads at home.
Plants grow up to three times faster than in outdoor agriculture. So there is a steady stream of healthy green food. There is no need for packaging, transport, or pesticides. Water consumption is 90% lower than on a field, and the only land you use is in your house or apartment. Smart internet-connected sensors control the flow of nutrients, humidity, and light for perfect results.
At the GREENTECH FESTIVAL, we are delighted about Agrilution. Technology can’t get much greener than that.
Making business travel carbon-neutral
For the GREENTECH FESTIVAL, as with many of our partners, travel is essential. We are proud to have Airive as an exhibitor helping us to travel economically and green at the same time.
Before COVID, European business travel caused a devastating 125 million tons of CO2 emissions annually. Airive proves this carbon footprint can shrink significantly with smart travel planning. This is done with a unified SaaS platform available to mobility managers and their suppliers.
It analyzes the current CO2 footprint, defines CO2 reduction targets, and automatically purchases the targeted mobility mix. (And also gives green transport a competitive edge.)

ASC Services Deutschland GmbH
The ecofriendly jetski
ASC Services Deutschland GmbH
Riding jet skis on the water is undoubtedly fun. However, riding jet skis also leaves a huge carbon footprint because they all use combustion engines until now. So why not combine the emission-free ride of an electric boat with the fun of a jet ski?
That’s the idea behind ASC. It looks good, it’s up to 30 km/h fast, it has an eco-friendly electric drive, and it is great fun. It could be a hobby for everyone since no boat license is necessary.
The makers of ASC worked for eight years from the first sketch to the ready-for-sale product. Have a look at this amazing machine at the GREENTECH FESTIVAL.

FFBS – Fashion For Biodiversity Solutions GmbH
Fashion for biodiversity
FFBS – Fashion For Biodiversity Solutions GmbH
The fashion industry causes more CO2 emissions than air travel and marine transport combined. Furthermore, fashion production is one of the biggest foes of biodiversity.
But while the damage done is being tracked in other industries and harm can be reduced, it is hard to localize the impact of specific clothing on the environment precisely. FFBS is here to change that. Using state-of-the-art blockchain technology, every bit and piece of a fashion article can be traced from the origin until it is deposed.
This could become a mighty tool to make fashion genuinely green. We are happy to give FFBS a stage for their innovative project at the GREENTECH FESTIVAL.
How to get clean and green

And Gmund Paper may not only be the most ecological paper there is, we find it is also the most beautiful one.
The bag that makes a difference
It´s good not to use single-use bags. However, it´s even better if you use a bag like goodbag. Here you don´t only avoid waste, you contribute to something positive.
For every goodbag sold, a tree is planted. The goodbag makers support One Earth – One Ocean, an organization that is on a mission to take plastic out of the sea. If you join the goodbag movement, you will find plenty of opportunities to do good on their app.
They are made of top-quality sustainable materials and have designs that are adorable and outspoken at the same time.
Have a look at the GREENTECH FESTIVAL.
Going ahead in sustainability
Google has a well-earned reputation for being a frontrunner. Did you know, for example, that Google was climate neutral in 2007 already? So whatever Google service you use, you can be sure to do it without leaving a carbon footprint.
But, of course, Google wouldn´t be Google if they weren’t thinking ahead using their enormous data power to leverage green progress. For example, by assisting 500 cities measure, track, and reduce an aggregate of 1 gigaton of carbon emission by 2030. Or by adding features to their core products to help 1 billion people reduce their environmental footprint.
We are sure you will learn a when you visit Google at the GREENTECH FESTIVAL.
Tiny houses for sustainable living
Tiny Houses combine sustainability with affordable living space. Green mobile is an innovative and spirited company specializing in building tiny houses with high-quality wood and other sustainable materials.

With water-saving showerheads, environmentally friendly production methods, with initiatives to raise the awareness of consumers and society.
Hansgrohe undisputedly leads the industry in green progress. Read what the former CEO Klaus Grohe had to say as early as 1990: “Climate change is not a distant future; after all, it is a reality. The whole of society must contribute to reducing CO² emissions. We are setting the course today for the day after tomorrow.”
Welcome to the GREENTECH FESTIVAL.
Happy Ocean Foods
Shrimps for vegans
Happy Ocean Foods
Overfishing is a clear and present danger to the oceans. So far, international agreements and regulations couldn´t stop this. So why not try out a pretty radical idea – and make seafood out of plants? The young start-up Happy Oceans sells shrimps that taste like shrimps, look like shrimps but haven´t been fished out of the water. Instead, the ingredients are harvested from plants – making the Happy Oceans shrimps the first ones that make environmentalists, vegans, and the oceans happy. The company was founded by Robin and Julian, two surfing enthusiasts who want to give back something to the elements they are enjoying so much. And we are pleased to welcome Happy Oceans to the GREENTECH FESTIVAL.

Tableware made from palm leaves
Disposable dishes and sustainability did not go together until LEEF fundamentally changed this. Disposable plates and bowls by LEEF are made of palm leaves that fell naturally to the ground. A palm leaf does not have to be specially cultivated and processed. It is easily compostable and contains only nature as an ingredient. No energy is wasted to produce it.
LEEF products are just borrowed from nature, reshaped a little and returned directly after use. Besides, they have a feel and stability far superior to conventional disposable plastic tableware. What a great way to fight the ever-growing mountains of plastic waste. And what a great contribution to the GREENTECH FESTIVAL.

Building a home on the moon with waste
Some ideas sound a bit crazy at first, but they are brilliant when you look closely. Here is one: There are plans to build a permanent station on the moon. But why lift tons of material into space when it is already out there?
Thousands of tons of space debris are orbiting the earth. High-quality materials that just need a little push to be directed to the moon’s surface. Here you can reuse them to build anything you need out there.
That’s the plan of Orbit Recycling, a genuinely innovative team we are glad to have at the GREENTECH FESTIVAL.
A green highway
What was the last truly new category in transportation? The Zeppelin? Well, here is the newest: ottobahn. Imagine spacey gondolas attached to a track system lifted 5 to 10 meters above the ground. Gondolas that can make 60 km/h in cities and 250 km/h in between cities. Energy consumption is only 10% of electric cars. You may own your own Gondola, which can be parked at your destination. Sounds a bit fantastic? The prototype circuit is being built in Munich. And the makers are not science fiction authors but renowned engineers. And they are happy to talk to you and answer your questions at the GREENTECH FESTIVAL.

Treedom is a great contributor to the fight against climate change and is very welcome at the GREENTECH FESTIVAL.
Urban Tech Republic
Urban Tech Republic
The former Tegel Airport is making room for the growing Berlin. A research and industrial park for urban technologies is being built here: “Berlin TXL – The Urban Tech Republic. With this site, Berlin is getting back a piece of the city and gaining space for industry, commerce and science. And it’s only 15 minutes from the seat of government of Europe’s most important industrial nation.
The focus of the innovation park is on what keeps the growing metropolises of the 21st century alive. This is where urban technologies are researched, developed, produced, tested and exported. This is where science and research meet industry and commerce, and start-ups meet investors. And everyone is working together on solutions for the cities of tomorrow.
Six core themes of urban technologies have been defined for the curated site:
– climate-neutral energy systems and the efficient use of energy
– environmentally friendly mobility
– clean water
– the use of new materials for applications such as sustainable construction
Saving energy with nothing
What is a vacuum? Nothing! This makes it a perfect insulator because no molecules allow energy transmission.

Delicious vegan food
Veganz is a vegan food company that does a lot to make veganism popular. Founded 11 years ago in Berlin Veganz colorful products are sold today in their own supermarket chain.
Veganz’s wide range of delicious food is loved by vegan pros and makes it easy for beginners to start a vegan lifestyle. Which is good for everyone and our planet. Just read this excerpt from their website.
“By eating an all-plant diet, you can save 4,200 liters of water per day, save 3.8 square meters of the forest as well as 1 animal and skip a whopping 4.5kg of CO2.” A lot of good reasons to welcome Veganz at the GREENTECH FESTIVAL.
Ethical textiles from Mexico
Mexico enjoys one of the most rich plant-based cosmetics traditions. It’s biodiversity and ancient botanical knowledge are enormous, but this is mostly unknown to the outside world. VIVA MAIA’s mission is to bring these fascinating Mexican Beauty Secrets to Europe.
They are the first brand offering the age-old Mesoamerican wisdom with cruelty-free and organic skincare products, all carbon-neutral. VIVA MAIA also has a positive social impact by giving hundreds of Mexican outcasts a second opportunity in life.
On top of that, they sponsor social projects for disadvantaged people in Mexico. All this together makes Viva Maia a great new entry for the GREENTECH FESTIVAL exhibition.
A second life for batteries
Electric mobility is on the rise, and millions of powerful batteries are produced now and in the future. But what happens with these batteries when they grow old?
Voltfang has an excellent circular solution for that. Used batteries usually have a residual capacity of over 80% when they are discarded. 80% capacity may not be enough for an EV but more than sufficient for stationary storage systems. These systems are in dire need to stabilize grids and power homes during the nighttime.
Giving used EV batteries a new life is a perfect way to help the energy transition succeed and lower the ecological footprint of battery lifecycles. Welcome Voltfang to the GREENTECH FESTIVAL.

Wings for Living
Blades to sit on
Wings for Living
Wings for living gives discarded wind turbine rotor blades a second life – in the form of outdoor furniture. This is an excellent idea since the composite materials of rotor blades are hard to recycle ordinarily. In the next five years, about 14,000 square meters of blades will have to be demolished and dismantled – and provide the raw material for innovative and aesthetic accessories designed by Wings for living.
By upcycling the wind turbines, the current team of three therefore also sees itself as part of a sustainable solution for clean energy.
And gives another example of how creativity can start a circular economy approach in any sector. Welcome to the GREENTECH FESTIVAL.

WSSB der TU München
Circular Bio-Economy for true sustainability
WSSB der TU München
The Werner Siemens-chair at the technical university of Munich develops cutting-edge technologies in the field of circular bio-economy. Using biomass to create materials and energy has many advantages: It is relatively easy to achieve carbon neutrality. Biodiversity and ecosystems can be sustained.
And the processes are designed to be circular – so everything that is taken out will be put back to form a sustainable loop. A special focus of the Munich scientists is economic feasibility.
So science can become applicable for widespread use. We welcome the team with their 4S mission (Science-Systems-Sustainability-Solutions) at the GREENTECH FESTIVAL.

XPRESS Ventures (Fiege)
XPRESS Ventures (Fiege)
We are happy to have a truly dedicated company from the logistics sector at the GREENTECH FESTIVAL.
Five generations of the Fiege-family have built one of Europe’s leading logistics companies. Their successful combination of economy and ecology helped coin the word “eco-logistics” by Fiege. Their efforts show in many ways: Putting vast numbers of solar panels on their buildings. Cooperating with others to avoid empty runnings. Together with clients they strive to reduce CO2 emissions as much as possible.
Some projects are ripe to have a long-term impact on eco-logistics: Combining expertise of startups and internal data to gain transparency of CO2 emissions along the supply chain with the ultimate goal of total compensation.
