Tshwane University of Technology

Water Efficiency

The cleantech solution developed by Tshwane University of Technology is a water purification system that utilizes locally sourced maize tassel, a waste material discarded by farmers. The technology combines the maize tassel with carbon nanotubes to form activated carbon composites, which effectively remove pollutants from water, providing safe drinking water in rural agricultural areas. The solution is unique as it repurposes a waste material abundantly available in South Africa, offering a cost-effective alternative to traditional activated carbon used in water purification. The system targets the removal of herbicides, which can be harmful to human health. The initiative aims to address the lack of clean and pollutant-free water supply in rural and semi-urban areas, producing an estimated 3 million liters of water per month. The potential impact is significant, promoting environmental sustainability, recycling, and providing clean water to communities.

Wave Beat/Atarec

Renewable Energy
Water Efficiency

Advanced Third Age Renewable Energies Company (ATAREC) is a Moroccan startup that aims to position itself as a leader in innovative third-generation renewable energy solutions, with the goal of ensuring green energy autonomy for its partners. ATAREC is distinguished by its Wave Beat wave energy pilot solution, a solution patented in more than 70 countries.

With around 50% of the population living near the seas, ATAREC wants to become an economic, social and environmentally responsible leader, working for a positive impact on people and the planet thanks to its solutions aimed at facilitating access to energy and water.

Wave energy for its part is distinguished by its continuity — the waves do not stop! This is a smoothing effect of wind energy. As a result, WAVE BEAT has proven a load factor in Tangier Med exceeding the threshold for offshore wind power of around 60%. On the other hand, WAVE BEAT, thanks to its amplification system and by exploiting onshore advantages while being offshore, has proven a LCOE (Levelized Cost of Energy) among the most competitive technologies in the world of wave energies.
