One key to solving our climate challenges is to understand how our world actually works. Since its inception in 1958, NASA have been at the frontier of this research. As a world leading research and development agency, NASA have also invented many of today’s most promising climate innovations. Through pioneering these new technologies on the very border of human capabilities, NASA have become a pivotal player in understanding and preventing climate change.
In 2016, SSAB, LKAB and Vattenfall joined forces to create HYBRIT – an initiative that endeavors to revolutionize steel-making. HYBRIT aims to replace coking coal, traditionally needed for ore-based steel making, with fossil-free hydrogen. The result will be the world’s first fossil-free steel-making technology, with virtually no carbon footprint.

More and more sectors are realizing that to reach climate targets, we will need more electricity, not less. Fossil free energy and electric solutions can minimize carbon emissions across sectors. Vattenfall operates the hydropower that fuels the region’s industries, but is also a key player in partnerships and innovation for the electrification of everything from transports to steel making.
Climate action scenarios call for 100 million electric vehicles by 2030, and more and more sectors look to electricity as a substitute for fossil power. Battery production needs to be scaled up fast, and sustainably. With the ambition to produce the world’s greenest batteries on an unprecedented scale, Northvolt has taken on the challenge.
SunPine is a world leading bio refinery built around a Swedish innovation and entrepreneurial achievement. Today, SunPine is an established billion-kronor industry that contributes to the green transformation of society and thus improves the world.
SunPine has a clear business idea linked to green forestry in Sweden. “SunPine’s process and employees seek to be world leaders in the production of renewable products based on sustainable forestry.”
Despite technological breakthroughs often gaining significant public attention, it normally takes around 20-30 years for innovation to reach large-scale commercialization. Can't wait that long?Read More
With legislators incapacitated to make necessary policy changes and consumers slow to adapt behaviours, our only hope to have fast climate impact is to drive radical changes in industry.Read More
