Hi, it’s Alexandre from Eurazeo (ex. Idinvest). I’m investing in seed & series A consumer and consumer enablers startups all over Europe. Overlooked is a weekly newsletter about venture capital and underrated consumer trends. Today, I’m digging into YC’s most recent batch to spot recurring tech trends from the 400+ participants.
La start-up norvegese Carbon Crusher realizza strade sottraendo CO2 dall'atmosfera usando come legante la lignite di origine vegetale.
Norwegisches Cleantech-Startup Carbon Crusher ersetzt Rohöl bzw. Bitumen bei der Sanierung von Verkehrswegen durch Lignin.
-Etter at vi etablerte oss i USA har vi opplevd en voldsom interesse for vår måte å bygge vei på. Og det er først og fremst karbonlagringen med lignin som har fått amerikanske investorer til å ta fram sjekkheftet.
The small firm provoking significant sustainable change, Carbon Crusher is developing new solutions for reducing emissions in road resurfacing operations
Carbon Crusher is building carbon-negative roads out of recycled asphalt and plant-based glue.
Using recycled asphalt bonded by plant-based adhesive, Carbon Crusher has created a mix for carbon negative roads that is both affordable and actively sequesters emissions.
Sustainable transportation is mainly about the types of vehicles that circulate and what powers them, but it’s also about the roads. Making and maintaining roads also releases a lot of CO2 into the air, but the solution is not to stop making new roads. Instead, this Norwegian startup uses recycling and sustainable materials to make existing roads better and future carbon-neutral ones.
