Mussels as an environmental mitigation tool

Eutrophication related to industry, agriculture, sewage and natural run-off has long been a problem for the Baltic Sea resulting in algal blooms and the build-up of anaerobic dead zones. Long-line mussel farming has been identified as a mitigation tool for removal of excess nutrients in eutrophic coastal waters.

The Mush Have Company

The company uses mycelium, together with waste from agriculture, to grow materials that replace plastic. By using mycelium, the company can grow better materials with fantastic properties such as low weight, 100% compostable, fireproof and insulating. The company now wants help to find new applications of this material and technique.

Theft proof deposit container for Pantamera

Since 2011 Pantamera has been collaborating with ski resorts and camping sites. Today's environmentally conscious guests want it to be easy to leave the can or bottle in the right place, for example, before their departures, when they leave their cottages or apartments. Unfortunately, quite much of the deposit is stolen from the deposit igloos. We need to find a secure theft proof deposit container and it has to be made for the outdoor environment.
