'Team points' are awarded according to the adequacy of the solution with the type of innovations sought by Team for the Planet. They correspond to the analysis of several factors :

  • impact potential: impact average score > 4 => 0,5 point / if > 4,15 => 1 point.
  • global consistency: all average score of the 6 selection criteria > 2,5 => 1 point.
  • the favourite: % of assessments judge the innovation as a top one to act on a global scale against greenhouse gases > 20% => 1 point
  • the targeting: validation of Team for the Planet scope of action higher than 90% => 0,5 point + innovation level of maturity is enough => 0,5 point
  • social acceptability: semantic analysis score of comments > 0 => 0,5 point/ if > 3500 => 1 point
23 assessments

Submitted for assessment : After checking that an innovation is within the scope of the 20 issues Team for the Planet targets and that it has reached a sufficient maturity, the innovation is being assessed.

the largest project mankind can start to reduce energy consumption by increased efficiency

Detailed project

NB: this form is filled entirely by the ones submitting the innovation.

What is the issue addressed?

Distillation is a very inefficient process which is responsible for 10+% of the industrial CO2 emissions in the world. RevSep can replace conventional distillation with energy savings of up to 90%, it is an enormous step towards a more sustainable industry while remaining economically interesting.

How is the problem solved?

It has a much higher thermal and thermodynamic efficiency due to a reversible energy cycle.

What is the customer target?

All (petro)chemical companies: Shell/Dow/etc., all air separation companies: Linde/Air Liquide/etc., all thermal desalination plants: Veolia/SUEZ/IDE/etc.

How is this solution different?

a reversible energy cycle
