Pioneers of Clean Technology for Environment Sustainability
The earth is facing a variety of environmental challenges, from climate change to plastic pollution, that require immediate attention. While governments and international organizations play an essential role in addressing these issues, startups, and organizations also have a critical role to play.
In this post, we’ll explore some of the ways that innovative startups and organizations are working towards a greener future through sustainable development practices. From cleaning the oceans to reducing carbon footprints, there are many exciting ways to save the earth and build a sustainable tomorrow. So, let’s dive in!

The Ocean Cleanup
Ocean Cleanup Breeze is a non-profit organization dedicated to cleaning up the ocean by developing advanced technology that can collect plastic waste from the sea. It hopes to reduce the amount of plastic waste in the ocean by 90% by 2040.
For this, it uses advanced technology to collect plastic waste from the ocean’s surface. The device consists of a U-shaped barrier that floats on the surface of the water and uses the natural movement of the ocean currents to trap the plastic debris. Once the debris is collected, it is then transported to a processing plant where it is sorted and recycled. A patent (NL2018882B) was issued for this device was issued in 2018.
The barrier (device), named Jenny, is constructed of a fabric that has been carefully engineered to capture the plastic trash while allowing water to pass through. The barrier also has sensors that keep track of the ocean currents, enabling it to change positions and operate at its most efficient level.
The device’s initial attempt saw it remove 9,000 kilograms, or approximately 20,000 pounds, of rubbish from the Great Pacific Garbage Patch (GPGP) in the Pacific Ocean.
Noya is a company that focuses on creating technology that can capture and store carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. It seeks to transform 2 million cooling towers at commercial and industrial locations across the United States into CO2-sucking tools for the war against climate change.
They are doing this by using a technology called Direct Air Capture or DAC. This process captures CO2 from the air in cooling towers and then sequesters it in a way that it can be sold or up-cycled into high-value products. Sounds amazing, right? But how exactly are they doing it?
Noya’s DAC technology uses a special material that can capture CO2 when exposed to air. The CO2 collected can then be sold to companies or used to produce high-value products like fuel, plastics, and more. For this technology, Noya filed a patent (US-20230036635-A1) in 2021 which is still in the pending stage. The technology used by Noya is a game-changer in the fight against climate change. It has the potential to remove millions of tons of CO2 from the atmosphere, making a significant impact on our planet’s health.
Now, you might be wondering what direct-to-chip liquid cooling is and why it is so important. Well, let’s break it down. Data centers are massive facilities that store and process massive amounts of data. These facilities require a lot of energy to operate, and as a result, they produce a significant amount of heat. To keep the data centers cool, they need a cooling system.
Traditionally, data centers have used air-based cooling systems that require a lot of power to operate. But these systems are not very efficient, and they often result in a lot of energy being wasted. This is where Jetcool comes in. Jetcool’s micro convective technology uses a liquid-based cooling system that is directly applied to the chips in the data center. This approach reduces energy consumption by maximizing computing and lowering power usage effectiveness (PUE).
Jetcool’s technology is powered by ultra-low thermal resistance systems, which means it’s incredibly efficient. In fact, Jetcool’s solutions reduce energy costs and water usage by replacing power and water-intensive structures such as chillers and cooling towers. This technology works with heavy processors in CPUs, GPUs, and ASICs, making it an effective tool to minimize energy consumption in large data centers. Jetcool’s patent portfolio consists of 21 patents out of which 4 have been granted.
So, why is this so important? Well, by reducing the amount of energy consumed by data centers, we can reduce our carbon footprint and help save the Earth. The less energy we use, the less impact we have on the environment. Plus, Jetcool’s technology is cost-effective, which means it’s not only good for the planet but also good for business.
Dynamhex uses AI to create carbon reduction roadmaps that are both equitable and actionable. They take the guesswork out of energy transition by leveraging localized data and intuitive analytics. This helps cities and individuals transition to a low-carbon future, neighborhood by neighborhood. But what exactly does that mean?
Well, Dynamhex has created a carbon accounting and emissions management platform that helps organizations measure, report, and reduce their carbon footprint. To personalize and localize climate change, they make use of geographical data, mathematical modeling, and AI.
The result? A more accurate picture of a community’s carbon emissions and a clear roadmap for reducing them. This is crucial for addressing climate change at the local level, where the impact can be felt the most.
Dynamhex’s technology also helps identify where carbon reduction efforts will have the most impact. By analyzing localized data, they can determine which neighborhoods and industries produce the most emissions. This information can then be used to create targeted solutions that address the root causes of carbon emissions.
Ubiquitous Energy is a transparent solar technology company that is on a mission to revolutionize the way we generate and consume energy. Their technology is unique because it allows windows to generate solar power without compromising their transparency. The technology is based on transparent solar cells, which can be integrated into glass windows without affecting their appearance. Their patent portfolio consists of 111 patents out of which 22 have been granted.
How are they doing it, you ask? Well, the technology used by Ubiquitous Energy is called “ClearView Power.” It is a transparent solar coating that can be applied to any surface, including windows, to generate electricity. The coating is made up of organic materials that absorb light and convert it into electricity.
In conclusion, the future of our planet depends on the actions we take today. Building a sustainable tomorrow requires the collective efforts of startups and organizations committed to a greener future. The goal of saving the Earth is not only a responsibility but also an opportunity to drive innovation and sustainable development. We need to prioritize sustainability and make it a part of our daily lives. By making conscious choices and supporting the businesses and initiatives that prioritize sustainability, we can collectively create a better future.
