On November 1, 2021, LLC "SAMI" - a member of the international consortium "St. Petersburg Cluster of Clean Technologies for the Urban Environment" (SAMI website), the Japanese Association ROTOBO together with the Russian-Japanese association INNOVATIONS BRIDGE launches the DeCarbonization_Tech program for technology companies from Russia engaged in decarbonization.
Applications are accepted on the accelerator's website until November 22, 2021.
The goal of the program is to find innovative solutions in the field of decarbonization and carbon footprint reduction for further integration into the production processes of large Japanese companies.
According to its results, selected GreenTech projects will be able to pilot their solutions at the production facilities of large Japanese companies. Startups will receive training and mentoring with Japanese experts, as well as take part in pitch sessions with Japanese investors. Some of the solutions are integrated into the production processes of Japanese corporations.
When selecting for the accelerator, the focus will be on projects from the following areas: production, transportation and utilization of hydrogen and ammonia; use of renewable energy sources; digital technologies for measuring, controlling and visualizing CO2 emissions; decarbonization of supply chains and logistics processes; technologies related to emissions trading (monitoring, certification, e-commerce technologies); capture, storage and processing of greenhouse gases (including CO2); closed-cycle economics (recycling, waste disposal, etc.); mobility, unmanned vehicles; technologies aimed at energy conservation, including digital.
At the first stage of selection for the acceleration program, startups are waiting for applications in the format of video pitches in English.
At the second stage, selected startups listen to training lectures, undergo mentoring, and participate in an online event with Japanese investors. Some of the solutions are integrated into the production processes of Japanese corporations.
