1. Projects contributing to the resolution of waste plastic problems

We want to take on the challenge of creating businesses that can resolve various issues around waste plastic problems. We think that the following technologies can be combined with our company’s resources to develop new projects;

o Technology for biodegradable bioplastic: garbage bags, food containers and packaging.
o Technology for developing materials that can be composted and fermented with methane gas in industrial composts other than garbage bags and food containers and packaging.
o Technology for developing biodegradable agricultural and materials used in civil engineering area made from bioplastics
o Technology to regenerate waste in a short period of time through technologies like 3D printing, etc.
o Technology that gathers microplastics with vessels: we image some equipment that can be installed on vessels/boats easily.


2. Technology to make Hydrogen from water


o Cost-efficient ways to create Hydrogen from water
o More efficient hydrogen electrolyser


3. Cutting edge and cost-efficient battery storage technologies for renewable energy production


4. Carbon emissions: trading/offsetting/ carbon capture and utilization


o Alternative usage of the earned credits other than the conventional offsetting
o Innovative platform/marketplace system to sell/buy the credits
o Carbon capture conversion/utilization


5. Insect-Tech applicable domain


o General BSF(Black Soldier Fly) Bio Technologies
o BSF extracted Protein usage, Processing of mixed feed (Livestock, Aquaculture)
o BSF extracted oil and Chitosan usage; Bio-Fuel, Medical supplementary, Cosmetic
