Dear Friends of Greentown Labs,

The summer may be winding down, but our work to accelerate startup-caproate partnerships for climate solutions is only speeding up! Working across the five major greenhouse-gas-emitting sectors—energy and electricity, transportation, buildings, manufacturing, and agriculture—Greentown Go offers a fall programming calendar full of opportunities for startups, corporates, investors, and the general public to engage across our Boston and Houston campuses. 

First up: We’re actively seeking applications from innovative startups to help decarbonize the lifecycle impact of the automotive industry for Go Move 2022 with BASF and Magna. Read on for more information about startup eligibility. Applications close Sept. 30: help us spread the word!

And secondly: There’s no better way to learn about climate action than to see our startups in action. We hope you’ll join us to kick off Go Make 2022 with Mitsubishi Corporation (Americas) (Oct. 6, Boston) and to close out Go Energize 2022 (the Low-Carbon Hydrogen Accelerator) with EPRI and the Urban Future Lab (UFL) at NYU-Tandon, supported by Shell and the City of Houston (Sept. 29, Houston). Finally, Year 2 of the Carbon to Value Initiative—inspired by Greentown Go—is well underway with our partners at the Urban Future Lab and Fraunhofer, and we’ll have plenty of outcomes to share at our Final Showcase (Dec. 1, NYC).   

Read on for a deeper look at these programs and how startups and corporates are working together to decarbonize our economy. As always, we’d appreciate your help spreading the word on social media and hope you’ll join us for our upcoming program events! If you’re a corporate partner interested in leading a Greentown Go program, you can reach out here

Thank you for supporting Greentown and your commitment to climate action!

Go Move 2022 with BASF and Magna seeks to decarbonize the lifecycle impact of the automotive industry, from design materials to recycling processes, and beyond. We’re seeking applications from innovative startups at TRL 4-8 in the following technology areas (read the full call for applications here):

  • Materials innovation for automotive efficiency and reducing lifecycle emissions (weight reduction, improved aerodynamics, manufacturing efficiency, etc.)

  • Materials design for recycling and new recycling techniques (process innovations, painted plastics/multimaterial/mixed plastics recycling, etc.)  

  • Materials innovation for shared and future mobility (surface hygiene, material and exterior durability, dirt/ice/snow shedding, etc.)

Know a startup that might fit this scope? Encourage them to apply!

Go Make 2022 with Mitsubishi Corporation (Americas) and supported by the M-Lab Companies aims to decarbonize entire supply chains, from production through packaging and distribution. Curious to learn more or want an opportunity to network with MCA and the M-Lab Companies? Attend our Kickoff Event and EnergyBar on Oct. 6 and stay tuned for the full cohort announcement later in the month!

The 2022 program in the Go Energize track, the Low-Carbon Hydrogen Accelerator (LCHA), is a Greentown Go program in partnership with the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) and the Urban Future Lab (UFL) at NYU-Tandon and supported by Shell and the City of Houston. LCHA cohort startups advance low-carbon hydrogen production, enhance hydrogen storage and distribution, and offer business model innovations for the management of hydrogen supply chains.

Want to learn more about what the program partners have accomplished together? Join us at the LCHA Final Showcase on Sept. 29!

The Carbon to Value (C2V) Initiative—a unique partnership among UFL, Greentown, and Fraunhofer USA, and supported by NYSERDA—combines a best-in-class partnership accelerator program inspired by Greentown Go with exclusive access to industry leaders shaping the carbontech marketplace of tomorrow. 

Our Year 2 cohort is hard at work with Fluor Corporation, this year’s Cohort Champion, learning about how to anticipate and mitigate challenges as they scale up their carbontech. Read more here about how one Greentown member and C2V Initiative participant, Osmoses, is using novel molecular filtration membranes for both hydrogen separation and carbon capture. 

Curious to learn more about the growing carbontech industry? Tune in for the C2V Initiative Virtual Panel, “How CO2 Becomes a Trillion-Dollar Market,” on Sept. 23 during this year’s NYC Climate Week and mark your calendars for the C2V Initiative Year 2 Final Showcase on Dec. 1!
