The best Negavatt green idea is from Myceen, a developer of products using mushrooms
The EUR 10,000 grand prize for the Environmental Investment Centre (EIC) green idea competition Negavatt was awarded to Myceen, a developer of mushroom materials and related products. The EUR 5000 prize for the runner-up was taken home by RingKarp, a reusable food box service provider for catering establishments. Third place and EUR 3000 belongs to the circular economy agency Unknot, which helps clothing manufacturers to develop and sell recyclable products manufactured from their waste.
Negavatt is a competition launched in cooperation between the EIC and the Ministry of the Environment, in which teams from universities – whose good ideas help in moving towards a more resource efficient society in their educational institution or campus – are expected to participate. Even, if the offered design solution helps only a little bit, it is still important – every big change consists of many small initiatives.
EIC is the keeper of tomorrow that helps to implement thousands of projects each year, in order to improve and restore Estonian environmental condition, rectify environmental damage or reproduce natural resources.
