  • Greenwell2Greenhouse

    The core solution is to use existing high value resources (wells that are several 1000 meters deep) and instead of abandoning them to re-use them for the generation of geothermal energy. By that, geothermal heat becomes available at competitive prices to farmers to substitute fossil fuel. This further allows increasing the ability to self-supply with vegetables and fruits in Central or Northern European cities during colder periods. Thus, large amounts of transportation-related GHG emissions can be eliminated.

  • Hawa Dawa

    Air pollution is the biggest environmental health risk of our time. More than 90% of all cities with more than 100 000 inhabitants do not uphold WHO air quality guidelines, causing millions of premature deaths every year.

Hawa Dawa developed a new bottom-up air quality monitoring technique that provides remote, real-time & in-situ air quality data anywhere & anytime. Risk-groups, such as Asthmatics, COPD patients, children and pregnant women can finally control their air pollution exposure, while policy makers can make impactful and informed decisions to improve urban air quality. At the heart of our solution lays our CE-certified sensor node, which has been endorsed by top industry scientists as being both accurate and state-of-the-art. Combined with artificial intelligence, it is a
