SEaB Energy meets the world’s media at COP21
Mon 4th January 2016
COP21, the 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference, put in place targets agreed by all nations around the world to limit carbon output that will effectively phase out large-scale fossil-fuel power stations. The focus was, therefore, firmly on renewables - particularly innovations that can replace carbon-based fuels and tackle some of the planet’s other major issues including waste, fuel-poverty and pollution.
It was very appropriate therefore for Science Park tenant SEaB Energy and its CEO, Sandra Sassow, to demonstrate how the Flexibuster and Muckbuster can replace polluting diesel-powered generators whilst eliminating the landfilling of organic waste.
On Friday 4th December Sandra presented at Breakthrough Night at the Grand Palais – an event organised by Sparknews to showcase their 50 most promising innovations to tackle climate change and which also included a TV slot with the French channel BFM. The following day, Sandra followed UN leader Ban Ki Moon and French President Francois Hollande on to the stage to present to the world’s media.
It’s been a busy time for Sandra and her team. The Company was awarded a grant from LoToNo; a regional project to help nurture innovative business that develop low-carbon solutions in Dorset, Hampshire and the Isle of Wight. Funding for the project has come directly from the EU and will provide SEaB Energy with access to technological and design expertise
and a network of research organisations, as well as a valuable injection of cash. SEaB Energy has also announced a new installation of its Flexibuster at a hypermarket owned by Portugal’s largest retailer, Modelo Continente, part of the Sonae Group. This is the first time that an anaerobic digestion unit, that converts inedible food waste to energy, will be installed at a supermarket site anywhere in Portugal.
