Seafloatech Named A Finalist For Ocean Innovation AwardsPublished on April 1, 2021
SEAFLOATECH participated in the 3rd edition of the Ocean Innovation Awards and was selected as one of the 16 finalists among 56 applications.
Created 3 years ago, the awards recognize innovative solutions and projects for the future sustainable development of our oceans. The Awards are structured around 7 themes: preserving biodiversity; reducing the use of fossil fuels; reducing marine pollution; ensuring the protection of coastlines; raising public awareness about the protection of oceans and coastlines; exploiting marine energies in a sustainable way; and sustainably using ocean resources for food, health, leisure, cosmetics and other needs.
The four selection criteria were:
- The innovation of the project, opening up new perspectives or enabling the solution to a problem.
- The means by which the project improves the response to an existing need
- The potential reach and the number of people impacted
- The environmental impact
This selection as one of the finalists of the Ocean Innovation Awards follows SEAFLOATECH recently being awarded as one of the #1000 solutions from the SOLAR IMPULSE Foundation, rewarding profitable and sustainable solutions that protect the environment.
To receive the “Solar Impulse Efficient Solution” Label, the SEAFLOATECH POD® was thoroughly assessed by a pool of independent experts according to five criteria covering the three main topics of feasibility, environmental, and profitability. All labelled solutions are part of the #1000solutions portfolio that will be presented to decision-makers in business and government.
