Turn CO2 into value by using CO2 as feedstock
The start-up Green Minerals is founded in 2011 by Pol Knops, a physicist who has been doing research of CO2 storage by mineralization for 8 years.
Green Minerals uses olivine, a widely common mineral that has a natural feasibility to bind CO2. The process is called: mineral weathering, which takes a few years. Green Minerals can accelarate this process with functional fillers as result to make CO2-based materials.
Technology visualization, storytelling & application development
My role in this project is to fill the gap between science and applications / business. I made a website which tells the story everyone understands and I make visuals and infographics which explains the process-possibilities. Besides that, I contact people, companies or institutes who can adopt the technology.
Only through cooperations, we can make this wonderful technology reality!
Value chain of plastic recycling
From linear to circular business. Plastic recycling is a common example, but in an existing value chain not easy to implement. How can we motion the circular economy?
A selection of slides from a workshop where mainly recycling- and technology companies were present.
Materialen van Morgen
Project plan to make biobased & circular materials & products visible (in Dutch) and start up projects to make products in the Materials of Tomorrow
Agriculture- & foodtransition
The global food and agricultural system is broken and we need to recover it. The good news is that we can. Project Drawdown ranked 100 solutions on climate impact and concluded that 12 solutions of the top 20 are related to food & land. A raw material transition will be related to agriculture- and foodtransition. Knowledge in all fields is needed to discover the relations and solve complex system-problems.
Agro-ecological chickenfarm for local sale
KipEigen is a small-scale chickenfarm with special chickens who can lay eggs for 3 years. The free-range chickens can eat from the fruit- and vegetables remains from the garden where they are staying. It is a nature-inclusive and circular concept. KipEigen is working according a CSA-system (Community Supported Agricultre).
I developed a logo and the website, did a part of the storytelling and I am doing publicity activities.
A Serious Game which can save lives in case of a heart attack
Every week 300 people get a cardiac arrest in the Netherlands. A bystander can double a victim’s chance of survival by providing cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). Yet 75% of the Dutch do not know how to do this. The goal of I Save Lives is to ensure that everyone learns how to perform CPR.
I met the founder of I Save Lives and gave the advise to make a website for his innovation. This resulted in a small project.
