  6. 6. LAUNCH IS BUILDING AN ECOSYSTEM OF SUSTAINABLE INNOVATORS, WORKING WITH 70+ SOLUTIONS FROM AROUND THE WORLD LAUNCH A GLOBAL INNOVATION PLATFORM
  7. 7. Bioamber Anne Waddell Succinic acid is a building block chemical with an established and growing range of applications. New uses opening up include plastics, coatings, textiles, artificial leather, food and flavors and personal care items. Dow Cheminformatics Dan Wilson A mechanistic database of acute toxicity data for use in predictive safety assessments and sustainable chemistry development. Dutch Awearness Rien Otto Returnity Work Wear demonstrates the realization of a fully circular supply and production chain in the workwear market, reducing the environmental impact of the many processes associated with textiles. Ecovative Jeff Betts Ecovative’s technology resolves critical concerns for waste, energy, and consumer health. The products are a completely biodegradable replacement for polystyrene, packing material or insulation. Environmental Genome Project: Mapping the Global Web of Chemicals and Materials Michael Overcash A database that links to analytics aimed at improving public health and product manufacturing. Globechain May Al-Karooni Globechainisanonlinereuseplatformthatconnects businessestocharitiesandpeopletoenablethemtoreuse unwanteditemswithinaglobalsupplychainnetwork,creating awasteauditandsocialvalueformembers. Infinited Fiber Company Petri Alava Infinited Fiber Company has developed a process technology that can turn textile and paper waste into new fibers for the textile industry – not just once, but infinitely, with no decrease in the quality of the fiber.

This process involves using microbial crops, which are already used in food production, and provides a sustainable alternative to animal protein to meet global consumer demand. Mango Materials Molly Morse Mango Materials transforms waste methane, into biodegradable plastics that are economically and functionally competitive with oil-based plastics. Re:Newcell Henrik Norlin Through Re:newcell’s patented process, the environmental impact from textiles can be drastically reduced by recycling cellulosic based textiles (cotton, viscose etc.) Snapdragon Chemistry Matthew Bio Flow reactor systems which use computer algorithms to auto-optimization chemical manufacturing processes. Wiley Science Solutions Dr. Richard Threlfall Computer-aided synthesis design (CASD) software that helps chemists design efficient syntheses of molecules. Vigga.us Vigga Svensson Vigga is a new kid’s wear brand and a circular subscription service. The concept is an innovative business model that combines sustainability and fashion consumption, and makes them work together instead of against each other. Virdischem Neelam Vaidya Software products that offer toxicity analysis of most chemicals, identify better alternatives, and pinpoint where process improvements can be made.
