After months of promoting the Green Alley Award, and an intensive selection process, we are very proud to finally announce this year’s finalists. The six startups come from Germany, France, Spain, Denmark and Estonia. Their ideas for boosting the circular economy focus on waste prevention, recycling and digital technologies.
Cellugy from Denmark has come up with EcoFLEXY, a 100% bio-based alternative to conventional plastic packaging. The German Startup Flustix has invented a consumer trustmark to increase transparency and raise awareness amongst consumers. Gelatex Technologies from Estonia has created an eco-friendly alternative to conventional leather. LivingPackets, a startup based in France, has devised a sustainable packaging solution for online deliveries. RMF Tech from Germany has developed a recycling technology to extract the critical material indium. And Spanish biotechnology startup VEnvirotech creates polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA) bioplastics using bacteria.
What’s happening next?
The six finalists will pitch their business ideas live on stage in front of an international audience. The Green Alley Award jury, consisting of Landbell Group experts as well as our partners, will then choose the 2019 Green Alley Award winner.
