Wind

As wind towers rise above 100 meters in height, transportation poses considerable problems given that base diameters for 100+ meter towers exceed 4.3 meters, the limit for transport width in most parts of the USA and the EU. Furthermore, conventional steel tower constructions get dramatically more expensive with height due to the increasing need for thicker walls. In order to make significant returns on wind technology investments, organizations will need to drastically improve both costs and efficiency.

Modvion´s patented module technology enables significantly decreased cost, efficient transportation and streamlined installation of towers exceeding 120 m. Ultimately, this results in increased cost efficiency in the harvesting of wind resources.

Woshapp

Woshapp

Through the Woshapp app, Woshapp takes the car wash to the car and reduces the amount of water needed for each wash. Woshapp’s goal is to revolutionize the way we clean cars using sustainable and environmentally friendly methods. On average it takes 1.5 hours to wash a car and in addition about 200 litres of water are consumed per wash. Woshapp service agents cycle to the car and carefully hand wash it in an environmentally friendly way, using only about 400 millilitres of water per wash, thereby saving 99% of the water consumed by a regular car wash. The method provides better quality than a mechanical car wash, avoiding the scratches that can occur.

Zero Mass Water

Zero Mass Water

Access to potable water is still a huge challenge in many areas of the world. Zero Mass Water is taking on this challenge to provide potable water to every human being. The company has designed a solution they called SOURCE–a HydropanelTM that meets the drinking water needs of the more than seven billion people on earth. Applying thermodynamics, materials science, and controls technology, SOURCE needs only sunlight and air to make drinking water each day at homes, schools, offices and more.
