Project
 

Regenerative technology capable of converting industrial hemp-waste into graphene electrode material, ideal for energy storage solutions in the form of ultra-capacitors, with primary applications in the electrical grid and transportation. The project aims to provide renewable energy storage solutions, with a business model keenly focused on regenerative energy and materials economies from sourcing through disposal, to facilitate a global transition from the fossil fuel economy to a relocalized, resilient, and equitable economy with distributed, decentralized, and democratic energy systems. 

Objectives
 
  • Upcycling industrial waste

  • Turning costs into revenues

  • Carbon-sequestering resource sourcing alternatives to graphite mining activities.

  • Providing an end product focused on quality, durability, performance, affordability.

  • Mitigating GHGs through a localized supply chain.

  • Promoting renewable energy production and storage, thereby lowering demand for fossil fuels.

  • Increasing current energy storage solutions’ capacity, power delivery, lifespan, and safety.

  • Bringing farming and manufacturing jobs to rural agricultural communities, including tribal lands.

Project
 

Firsthand knowledge, know-how, and insights from our field of work give us the ability to share and  “teach from experience” which we believe is key in order to spark interest in the ordeals of entrepreneurship. The project was an opportunity to enlighten young, bright, and curious minds looking to learn more about the concepts of a circular economy.

Objectives
 
  • Mitigating the gap between school and entrepreneurship.

  • Teach and promote a circular economy.

  • Teach and promote entrepreneurship.

In close collaboration with partners across industries, we sought to increase recycling and upcycling rates in the construction sector. Nordic Waves explored and mapped industrial waste streams with low risks and ideal use for recycling and upcycling within the framework of the construction sector's market requirements

Objectives
 
  • Mitigate industrial conservatism, and GHG emissions.

  • Increase recycling rates.

  • Create cross-industrial and cross-border symbioses

  • Create products and roadmaps customized for the construction sector.
