    bikuh - pedal for payback

    bikuh connects the advertising industry with bicycle riders. Anyone owning a bike can place an advertisement on it and in return gets paid up to 20 cents for each ridden kilometre. This financial incentives motivates people to rider more often their bike and less their car. It is scientifically proven that it works and thus we save CO2 emissions. And advertisers profit from advertisements that are mobile and are ridden directly by their target group. Through an app bikuh tracks each ride and allows for digital analysis tools of the exposure of the campaign that are unknown to outdoor advertisement.

    E²T - Efficient Energy Technology GmbH

    The technological basis of our plug&play storage device is a patented measurement technology, that is able to detect the electricity consumption within the household from the plug of the device itself. The system consists of a small photovoltaic panel and the storage device. As soon as the consumer plugs it in, the PV generates electricity which is stored in the battery pack and at the
    moment electricity is consumed anywhere in the household, the devices detects it and electricity will be supplied back to the household grid.
    With our unique system, we enable PV applications in smaller scales, especially for existing households in urban areas.

    JOYCE is the world’s first scent-based retronasal drinking system which makes it possible to drink pure water while enjoying a delicious taste.
    The JOYCE drinking system adds scented air to pure drinking water. While drinking, a mixture of air and water reaches the mouth where the air separates from the water and is retronasally perceived as flavor. The effect is amazing! While drinking pure water free from additives, sugar, calories or aromas one can still enjoy various delicious tastes.
    With JOYCE, we tackle two major problems of our time. The wasteful cycle of using one way drinking bottles and health problems caused by unhealthy drinks.
    We will generate two separate streams of income. One results out of selling the drinking system itself, the other one from continuously selling the aroma pods which last for about 20l of water.

    Manticore It GmbH -, vertical barrel

    The aponix vertical barrel takes the defacto standard equipment in mordern horticulture to the next level enabling users to set up grow spaces not only in 2D but in a flexible vertical 3D way. Cultivation area is translated from flat surface to the surface of barrel like towers, of which the height is flexible adding more grow spaces with additional height. The concept abstracts the barrel down to basically one lego like shape being 1/6th of a ring segment of a barrel. Each of the parts provides adapters on its surface. 6 of these parts are assembled into a ring segment, and any number of ring segments are then stacked as high as there can be beneficial atmosphere created for the cultivation of a crop.

    ReLaDe OÜ

    Reusable Laundry Detergent (ReLaDe) changes the concept of how laundry is done. It is the basis for the first reusable laundry detergent system in the world. Chemical detergents are toxic and harm reproductive health when spread into the water ecosystem. Instead of these toxic compounds, biological enzymes can be used without any loss of performance and with lower energy consumption.To address this issue, we use magnetic nanoparticles to bind enzyme molecules and magnetize them. The resulting magnetic detergent molecules can be easily removed from waste water via magnetic force and reused in subsequent wash cycles for months. Thus, we have redesigned the laundry detergent concept, creating a sustainable, reusable product which, if produced on an industrial scale and adopted into wide-spread use, could have significant positive health and environmental implications.

    Solabolic GmbH

    Based on a revolutionary concept, Solabolic parabolic trough will lead to a paradigm shift in the solar thermal industry. Its unique, patented design enables, on the one hand, to realize much larger collectors, while preventing the focus deviation due to wind loads, and eliminating inefficiency of large collectors and on the other hand, to avoid expensive and complicated manufacturing processing, which maximises the local content, especially in the developing countries (with the world's greatest solar resources) and supports the political decision in these countries towards solar energy, as we offer an economic advantage of manufacturing the collectors for the most part locally. All this leads to a significant reduction of the energy costs and accelerates the use of solar energy.
