The selection committee for the Green Alley Award has announced the five remaining finalists that will compete in Berlin on 28th April 2022. One of the finalists was already chosen by the public vote which took place earlier this year (see previous article here).
The six finalists are:
No more plastic wrapping: The plant-based edible coating, developed by Agree, protects fruit and vegetables, which increases shelf life and avoids food waste.
Atelier Riforma (Italy)
Enabling circular fashion: Using AI technology and a digital platform, Atelier Riforma helps the fashion industry to optimize the reuse and resale of textile waste.
Eliminate styrofoam and bubble wrap: The FlexiHex plastic packaging alternative made of paper has a patented honeycomb design to protect fragile items.
Biomaterial revolution: The coatings and films from MakeGrowLab with plastic-like properties for food packaging can be recycled like paper. They are also biodegradable.
Green marketing: ScrapAd provides a global platform for trading recyclable materials to counteract the lack of information in the recycling industry.
Extending the lifecycle of batteries: Voltfang’s green electricity storage system uses electric car batteries to provide clean energy at home.
The six startups will present their business idea live on stage and answer the questions of the jury, who will then determine the winner of the Green Alley Award 2022.
