Arctic Reflections

We aim to restore the Arctic ice by thickening the ice in winter through pumping sea water on top of it. The Arctic sea water, when pumped over the ice, freezes quickly due to the low Arctic atmosphere temperature. This results in thicker ice sheets, which are less likely to melt completely during summer. We are developing a concept which makes use of specific locations around the Arctic Ocean to create ice and then have it transported into the Arctic waters by existing ocean currents. Through this natural ice distribution process and the use of large pumps, we believe it should be feasible to save 100,000 square kilometers of ice from melting during the summer, which will be sufficient to stop the decrease of the sea ice.

Atlantik Fish, Lda.

Atlantik fish is located on old saltpans, which were adapted to produce fish on low densities (up to 3 Kg/m2 at harvest) and maintain the natural conditions in which the fish live in costal lagoons and estuaries; The water in the ponds is renovated using only the tides, so that we have high water renovation and simulates the natural habitat for the fish; The water is very rich in natural food like shrimps, algae, crabs and polychaeta, that enters with the water and grows on the ponds, allowing the fish to feed on natural food, as they do in the wild; The Atlantik Fish sea bream and sea bass are an aquaculture fish of superior quality, with a look and taste similar to wild fish, due to the production system and to the natural food they eat during their growing; The low density of fish allow them to swim and rest freely in the ponds, like the wild fish, which grants the fish the right meat consistency and correct and even distribution of fat in the body and tissues;

BIOFABRIK

The compact refinery WASTX Plastic, basing on the process of catalytic depolymerization, offers a prototype, ready to go into serial production, which converts plastic waste into a diesel-like fuel, automatically presorting, cleaning and shredding it beforehand. Hereby, the chemical compounds of the plastic material become resolved and transformed back to their original liquid state through thermodynamic processes during a process of multi-stage refining progress. Using this technology, one kilogram of plastic will be converted into approximately one litre of fuel, corresponding to up to 10 kilowatt-hours of energy. The WASTX Plant is capable of feeding, processing and cleaning itself 24/7 completely automated. Due to its compact construction style the entire system, presorting and crushing included, currently require the space of a 40-foot sea container. It can be placed and operated decentralized without having to transport the waste.

BioFeyn

BioFeyn's mission is to create better feed for better fish. In the simplest sense, we are improving what farmed fish eat. We are optimizing ingredients so fish can get more of what they naturally get in the ocean. We are doing so through a system of biocompatible and biodegradable encapsulations, which both protects marine ingredients and amplifies their effect. Trace amounts of marine ingredients are surrounded by a shell of other naturally-derived compounds. This ensures better digestion, absorption, bioavailability, and delivery to target tissues in the animals to help them grow and remain healthy.

Bionic System Solutions (BSS)

Our solution will develop a custom IoThub and a cloud solution to host data. Both applications rely on open standards, giving maximum flexibility to shipping companies. This allows a shipowner to select an IotHub from another vendor and connect it to our cloud platform and vice versa or interface between our platform and another IoT platform. However, the time difference in arrival estimation requires that data be sampled synchronously down to less than a trial period for all sensors. This is not a trivial task and this functionality is not found in any common applications today. Since our IoT hub is implemented on top of an integrated Linux platform that in turn interfaces with up to 127 embedded modules via its I2C bus, the hub can be dynamically expanded to test between one and several hundred sensors synchronously, and if more endpoints are required, we will also be able to connect several IotHubs.The IoT platform combines methods in frequency analysis, machine learning.
