World Alliance members at the Climate Show in Geneva


Next week we will be attending the inaugural International Climate Show in Geneva, hosted just down the road from our offices….okay, it’s quite a long road, but nearby nonetheless.

Climate Show in Geneva

Bertrand Piccard will be speaking at the opening and taking part in a panel discussion, and five of our members will be displaying their solutions during the marketplace exhibition. These solutions exist across a range of topics, from an easier and cheaper way to install offshore wind turbines to railway sleepers made from recycled plastic and rubber (that may not be the most visually exciting, but it uses a pretty significant amount of material. And they are not all technologies that are out of reach from the average consumer. Anti-smog is a small box that injects hydrogen into your car’s fuel-air mix, allowing for a more complete combustion of the fuel, reducing the amount of unburned gases and particles. This makes for better fuel economy and lower emissions.


Find out more about each of the solutions below, and if you’re in the area, come and check out these solutions to find out more about what we are doing to find clean, efficient and profitable solutions.


Esteyco will present two solutions, Elisa and Telwind, the first offshore wind substructures installed without the intervention of a heavy duty vessel, thanks to the telescopic tower and the self-floating structure. These structures allow for simple, reliable manufacturing and installation processes for offshore wind turbines.



Net Sas will bring a solution called Anti-Smog, a hydrogen fuel enhancement kit for cars to reduce air pollution and reduce costs. Anti-Smog consists of a pre-combustion injection of hydrogen into a car’s engine, reducing the number of unburned gases and particles.



Bound4Blue is a solution that provides a foldable windsail for more efficient maritime transport. This can be incorporated into new or existing commercial shipping vessels and provide almost 33% fuel savings a year, thereby avoiding some 4200 tons of CO2 emissions (based on a 150 meter long chemical tanker with four 40 meter wingsails installed).


GreenRail make innovative and sustainable railway infrastructure - namely sleepers - that use 35 tons of recycled plastic and rubber for every kilometer of train track. This solution also provides 40% reduction of maintenance costs. Greenrail’s solution was selected this past December as the Best Startup of 2017 at the Startup Italia Open Summit.


Finally, Via Végetale will bring their solution, Balsamo, an additive in fertilisers that allows for greater absorption of liquid nitrogen by plants, increasing yield and reducing environmental impacts. With this technology, they have managed to reduce CO2 emission by 42kg per hectare every year.



THE WORLD ALLIANCE...

The World Alliance brings together the main actors in the field of clean technologies in order to create synergies that will ultimately speed-up the implementation of clean and profitable solutions which have the potential to address the environmental challenges of today.

...FOR EFFICIENT SOLUTIONS

Efficient Solutions are not limited to the production of renewable energy. They encompass products, services, clean technologies and processes that are profitable and sustain economic growth, while protecting the environment and optimising the use of natural resources.

Ask your question to the member directly

Every question still pending on the solution should be communicated to the member before rating via this message box. Please, feel free to enquire about more details on specific aspects you judge necessary to assess the criterion below.


Some rules to keep in mind:

  • It’s important for the credibility of the process that your anonymity as an expert is retained. As such, please do not exchange contact details or indicate for whom you are working.
  • Refrain from using the comment box to raise questions on some missing aspects and elements on the solution submission form. Always use the chat box instead.
  • Wait as long as you can for the member to reply before submitting your assessment. If a member is not reacting to a question, please let us know via the “Need Help” tool and we will make a reminder to the solution’s contact.
  • Do not contact members directly to ask for information outside of this online tool (email, skype, phone call).
