Bamboo Biomass India
India is the second largest bamboo growing country in the world with over 14 million hectares devoted to its growth. There are no biomass technologies that are being used to convert bamboo into pellets for clean energy.
Solution: Looking for BC companies able to export Biomass technologies to the Indian market to convert bamboo into pellets for clean energy.
Battery Recycling India
As India adopts new clean technologies (specifically wind farms, solar farms and electric vehicles), they are looking for new applications for the second lifecycle of batteries before they are recycled.
Solution: Looking for BC companies that can provide applications for the second life cycle of batteries.
Electronic Waste India
India generates 1.8 million tonnes of electronic waste each year, with a 30% annual growth rate. There is a distinct need for new applications, technologies, and methodologies of extracting value from recycled electronics.
Solution: Looking for BC based companies that can provide new solutions and technology for recycling electronics.
Reducing Gas Emissions at Chemical Facility Mexico
A chemical material distribution facility that uses valves to systematically relieve the tanks that hold the chemicals is noting a side effect of this release: significant gas emission into the atmosphere.
Solution: Looking for BC companies that have a solution for capturing, repurposing, or resuing the gasses that are emitted before they enter the atmosphere.
Reducing Factory Leaks Mexico
A steel pipe factory is collecting a good amount of residuals in its extraction process. It would like to recuperate these residuals and find ways to monitor its pipes to detect leaks.
Solution: Looking for BC companies with a monitoring system that can detect the leaks and inefficiencies in the system.
Environmental Preservation around Port Expansion Mexico
Environmental DNA (eDNA) is being collected to provide a better tracking system of coral species and forest reserve. This is currently done with traps or by physically capturing a specimen.
Solution: Looking for BC companies that can propose an eDNA model for the preservation of and collection of specimen.
Effective Plastic Recycling System for Palette Wraps Mexico
A Mexican palette wrap company uses 300 tonnes of plastic for shipment per month. 100 tonnes are recycled, and 200 tonnes are virgin plastic.
Solution: Looking for a BC company to propose a recycled plastic or alternative wrapping system to cut costs & reduce the use of virgin plastic.
Decreasing & Processing Residual Dust Mexico
Residual dust from melting and processing scrap metal is producing about 500 tonnes of dust a week that is sent for processing outside of the plant.
Solution: Looking for BC companies to introduce a new approach to residual reduction and create value from potential extracted material.
Natural Animal Deterrent to Protect the Rice Produce Mexico
Ducks are a massive issue in rice fields in Mexico. As such, rice field farmers are looking for new methods that are a natural animal deterrent to protect the crops. Fireworks, sound, and scarecrows have been deemed ineffective.
Solution: Looking for BC companies that can propose an environmentally sensitive solution for protecting crops.
Port Expansion – Oil Response Challenge Mexico
In Mexico, companies leasing space at Ports are requested to have their own oil response in the event of a spill. The Port itself offers a secondary response procedure/kit to help companies, but a primary eco friendly option is needed.
Solution: Looking for BC companies that can propose an eco-friendly oil leak monitoring procedure/kit.
