'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

Detailed project

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

What is the issue addressed?

The biggest challenge faced by the industry for adopting green Hydrogen is the economics. The cost of green Hydrogen is 2-4 times more expensive compared to fossil fuels. The proposed technology will enable green Hydrogen to be produced at parity with the cost of fossil fuels, excluding carbon price.

How is the problem solved?

The proposed bioelectrocatalysis technology uses the metabolism of the microbes as the prime energy source to split water into Hydrogen and Oxygen, rather than renewable electricity. The bioelectrocatalysis technology will use 90% lower electricity as compared to conventional electrolysers.

What is the customer target?

Energy companies, water companies, industrial sector. Clients: Scottish Water, RWE, Arcelor Mittal

How is this solution different?

60% cost reduction and use water
