ZEBOX supports startups that make the world greener
ZEBOX, an international startup incubator and accelerator, has joined the national network of Greentech incubators and supports innovative projects that put tech at the service of environmental protection and the energy transition.
Since its opening in September 2018 in Marseille, ZEBOX has welcomed 45 startups: 33 in incubation and 12 in acceleration. In addition, more than 30% of the startups supported by ZEBOX are Greentech.
Focus on 5 Greentech startups supported by ZEBOX
- NST SMO transforms waste into green energy with a process that sequesters 10,000 tons of CO2/year/machine.
- Syroco enables a 25% gain in battery fleet for hydrogen-powered ships, obtained through its modeling solutions.
- Searoutes helps shippers to reduce their scope 3 emissions by 30%. Scope 3 corresponds to the other emissions indirectly produced by the activities and linked to the complete value chain such as the upstream and downstream transport of goods…
- In one month, DEKI has made it possible to transport almost one ton of goods without any greenhouse gas emissions.
- Sargasse Project converts toxic algae into a useful and ecological biomaterial for packaging professionals. Sargasse Project converts toxic algae into a useful and ecological biomaterial for packaging professionals.
Winner of the #Tech4island2020 Overseas Award NST SMO has invented a technology that turns all carbonaceous waste into green energy. The objective is to offer Zero Carbon, economical and profitable alternatives to areas of activity that generate CO2 emissions such as transportation, digital data storage, energy production or industry.
Each SMO Solar Process machine can reduce the concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere by 10,000 tons per year.
“Our technology works like a dynamic carbon sink: our BioEnergies avoid new CO2 emissions, thanks to our useful carbons which store CO2 already in the circuit.” says Yasmine Encelade of SMO.
Syroco is a scientific and technical lab that generates innovation through pioneering achievements. By setting goals beyond the limits imposed by current technologies, Syroco designs innovative solutions that can be applied in the industrial field.
Syroco markets two products: a platform providing a digital twin for energy efficiency simulation whose first customer is CMA CGM, founding partner of ZEBOX, and a foil (streamlined wing) that improves the energy performance of ships for Hynova (the first hydrogen-powered yacht). The goal is to make the technology accessible to the shipping industry, which will account for 17% of global CO2 emissions in 2050, compared to 3% today.
As for the project conducted with CMA CGM, “The goal is to obtain up to 20% fuel savings and therefore less greenhouse gas emissions. “says Alexandre Caizergues, CEO and co-founder of Syroco. Syroco is already enabling “a 25% gain in battery fleet for hydrogen-powered ships, obtained through its modeling solutions. “
Searoutes provides shippers with an all-in-one solution to reduce their carbon footprint due to transport. The startup’s secret sauce: powerful routing engines and high-quality visibility & predictive data on CO2 emissions at three points in the procurement chain: tender, spot procurement and reporting.
Pierre Garreau, Co-founder and CEO of Searoutes – “We want to give shippers decision power. They have objectives to achieve, in terms of reducing CO2 emissions and we can help them. Shipper can attain a 30% co2 reduction on their scope 3 by making procurement decisions which take co2 into account without increasing lead time”
DEKI develops solutions to collect, deliver and ship goods in a 100% responsible and 100% decarbonized way. DEKI develops solutions to collect, deliver and ship goods in a 100% responsible and 100% carbon-free manner.
It designs innovative numerical and physical tools by combining artificial intelligence, blockchain and algorithmics.
DEKI is therefore aimed at urban transporters who wish to reduce their carbon impact.
In one month, DEKI made it possible to transport nearly one ton of goods without any greenhouse gas emissions. “We want to see 20% of urban goods transported without any greenhouse gas emissions within the next five years,” says Beatrice Leduby, CEO of Deki.
Sargassum, toxic brown algae that are a real ecological, economic and health nuisance, has occupied the Caribbean coastline since 2011. The startup Sargasse Project has managed to convert it into a useful and ecological biomaterial, turning it into the new packaging of tomorrow.
