GARBALISER converts wastes through the anaerobic digester to high-quality fertilizer for the farmer and allows collecting methane gas. GARBALISER allows producing local fertilizers, time efficiently, with affordable prices in local currency.
GreenTech is a domestic hot water heat pump combined with a small PV system and smart controller to provide hot water throughout the year. GreenTech reduces the use of electricity and considers air and sun as energy sources which also reduces emissions. It provides constant hot water in the comfort for the users and regardless of the weather conditions and daylight.
PVBOT Cleaner is an automated cleaning solution for solar panels. It consists of an innovative, fast, and fully automated cleaning robot for medium and large-sized PV farms. This robot is 10 times faster than manual labor, and requires no water at all; it can, also, detect overheated cells. The main feature of PVBot is the conveyor that takes the robot from one row to another, eliminating by that the dedication of one robot per row. This makes it cost-effective.
Innovating Green Technology
IGT is a startup working in the field of water and energy and modern agriculture as hydroponics and aquaponics but also aquaculture. Autonomous solar-based aquaponics is designed to increase the agricultural productivity of controlled environments in an environmentally friendly and cost-efficient way. The implemented system is composed of a solar thermal water heating scheme, followed by a water mixing mechanism along with the autonomous control unit that continuously monitors the aquaponics environment and adjusts accordingly. This system is designed as a standalone system that continuously monitors the water temperature and quality, air temperature, relative humidity, carbon dioxide level, and light intensity within the aquaponics, and accordingly adapts the lighting as well as water flow/Oxygen injection. The designed system adopts solar thermal heating due to the fact that solar water heaters. Moreover, it has adequate controllers and timers that assure the appropriate functionality of the aquaponics upon the various environmental conditions./p>

Plastic To Fuel
PTF “Plastic To Fuel” is a startup that aims to design and manufacture machines to fight against pollution. PTF transforms single-use plastic waste into fuel and gas that reduce pollution and provide fuel and gas on a national and international scale. It is a circular process. It produces the needed quantity to power the Process and transform the plastic waste into fuel, gas, and Black Carbon.
SolaRay is a green portable power supply that combines power stations with solar panels. SolaRay produces a locally portable green generator of high quality and reliability tailored to the clients’ needs and provides sustainable electricity indoors and outdoors.
Solarone offers drones and computer vision software to automate PV panel inspection. Solarone uses drones, computer vision, and machine learning. The drone circulates above the solar farm, detects and locates malfunctioning PV panels by using IR imaging systems.
STEPSol harvests energy from the sun and stores this energy using water in order to provide electricity. STEPSol retrieves energy from solar panels, stores the energy surplus by pumping water from a low tank to a higher one, then retrieves it with turbines. This solves the problem of the intermittency of solar energy with our hydraulic battery. In addition, hydraulic storage is a mature technology benefiting from a great efficiency from 70% to 80%.
SunCode is a convective solar drying machine that allows a safer, faster, and easier method of drying food products. SunCode does not need any electrical supply and it is eco-friendly.
