Finaly the time has come to reveal the top 10 Nordic Cleantech Open companies. These ten selected will be presenting their cases at the European Cleantech Forum in Stockholm on the 19th of May. It has not been an easy task for the jury since there were so many good companies applying but here it is; the one and only, very out most best ten of the Nordic cleanech Startups:
Arsizio has come up with nothing less than a whole new production method; dynamic 3D-extrusion. The method enables; 10-50% savings in material, weight & energy, 10-20% higher efficiency in heat-transfer & solar-energy uptake and 20-80% lower production costs. The method is 100% compatible with existing production lines.
ATC Industrial Group / Scypho

ATC has developed Scypho, a self- learning system for indoor climate control. Without changing their behaviour homeowners can save up to 30% energy while at the save time comfort is improved. Scypho is a self- learning the system that knows when to start the heating or cooling in order to provide the ideal temperature when a person arrive home. When people are away and during the night, Scypho regulates the temperature to maximize energy savings.
BioCover has developed the SyreN systems for application of slurry to farmland. The SyreN system uses the technique of acidification (sulphuric acid) to change ammonia (gas) to ammonium (salt) during application of slurry. This reduces the emission of ammonia with up to 70% eliminating airborne eutrophication. The solutions developed by BioCover are turning a pollution problem of global scale into a profitable fertilizing solution.
CrayoNano is developing optoelectronic epiwafers and devices based on semiconductor nanowires on graphene. The result is a flexible and extremely thin and lightweight epiwafer able to produce or emit large amounts of energy from a small area using less material. Today’s flexible electrodes are made of organic compositions, with significant lower efficiency and robustness.
Cyclicor has developed a technology platform that makes it possible to remove all isocyanates from the production of polyurethanes and all bisphenols from the production of polycarbonates. Via a new simple and cost competitive chemical synthesis pathway Cyclicor has the ability to produce bio and non-biobased polycarbonates for a range of consumer and industrial applications.
Disruptive Materials has invented a new material named UpsaliteTM. Upsalite is a mesoporous form of magnesium carbonate with extraordinary properties. To mention a few, Upsalite has the best moisture adsorption capability in the world and at the same time low temperature regeneration. Upsalite´s unique properties have a huge impact on energy efficiency in dehumidifiers, dishwashers, HVAC systems, etc.
Ecofective supplies an energy and cost saving solution for existing buildings. The system collects and measures data to determine the buildings thermal behaviour and then influence the existing HVAC system to consider available free heat and adjusting for optimum energy use and indoor climate. The payback time for customers is within 2 heating seasons.
Based on unique and patented technology, Giamag Technologies designs and develops magnet systems and devices, which produce very strong magnetic forces. The patented magnet design constitutes the strongest magnetic separation technology on the market, with a broad range of possible applications within e.g. life science, medtech, automotive, aerospace, mining, and IT.
Optistring develops a novel inverter technology for grid connected photovoltaic installations. The module level electronics increase the energy harvest, up to 25%, in the final PV installation. The Optistring technology is the combination of all the different competing alternatives advantages to a cost level similar to that of the simplest and cheapest inverters.
Tamturbo’s oil free turbo compressors meet the needs of the most demanding process applications such as pharmaceuticals, food and beverages, electronics and paper. In these processes any risk of oil contamination must be excluded. Compared to any other known solution Tamturbo’s compressors offer the most advanced solutions for compressed air free of oil.
