'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
73 assessments

Submitted to the Sci. Committee : After the evaluations made by our volunteer assessors, innovations with the strongest impact potential are submitted to the Scientific Committee. The managing directors are responsible for the choice.

Detailed project

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

What is the issue addressed?

Removing carbon from atmosphere, cleaning up harmful algal blooms.

How is the problem solved?

We remove carbon from the air by accelerating the growth of algae, which we then convert into a solid and use for further carbon capture.

What is the customer target?

Companies that need to offset emissions (carbon credit buyers), industrial plants that emit carbon (point source emitters).

How is this solution different?

We use existing infrastructure (minimize capex build out).
