At a pitching session and awards ceremony in London on 2 September, Climate-KIC UK has announced the two winning start-ups – Econic Technologies and Aqdot – in the UK rounds of Climate-KIC’s Venture Competition.

Aqdot‘s technology allows for an energy- and raw material-efficient way of manufacturing microcapsules, leading to lower energy consumption and less waste.

Potential applications include encapsulating enzymes in laundry detergents, or encapsulating fertilisers in the agrochemical sector. Microencapsulation is a multi-billion-per-annum industry with established applications in household and personal care, food and agrochemical markets.

Winners receive a grant of €20.000 and a spot in the European finals. The event took place at the Royal College of Music’s Britten Theatre in South Kensington.

The winners were selected by a jury made up of Craig Lucas, Head of Innovation and Engineering at the UK’s Department of Energy and Climate Change; Akira Kirton, Venturing Principle EMEI at BP; Kelsey Lynn, Director Technology Ventures at Touchstone Innovations and Jonathan Tyler, Chief Commercial Officer, Climate-KIC.
