  4. Carbon Cell: a company that aims to eliminate polystyrene trash with a patent-pending, non-toxic, compostable foam material made from carbon-negative biochar and natural binders. 
  5. Remy (formerly Taste Don’t Waste): a company that leverages AI and automation to support busy households in reducing their food waste by 70%, saving them time and money.
  6. Fermtech: a climate biotech company from Oxford that is meeting the demand for affordable and sustainable protein ingredients. Their novel system converts side streams from the food industry, creating nutritious and flavourful products.
