After several rounds of fierce competition, we finally selected one startup to represent Singapore at the grand final round of Asia Hardware Battle in Shanghai.

In this competition, one startup rose above all the others and proved extraordinary through a series of stringent evaluation and step-by-step screening by several prominent judges: Mr. Chirayu Wadke (Partner at SeedPlus), Mr. Derrick Yap (CEO of PBA Group), Dr. Huang Zhiqiang (IP Strategist at IP Value Lab), and Mr. Kelvin Ong (CEO of FocusTech Ventures).

EcoWorth Tech (EWT) is a waste solutions partner specializing in transforming waste materials into reusable products while delivering social & environmental benefits. As an SG CleanTech startup, EWT commercializes an innovative, sustainable technology called “Carbon Fiber Aerogel”, developed at the NTU to treat waste, in particular, to remove and recuperate organic materials. Globally, there is a need for sustainable technologies that reduce waste, transform waste into value-added products, eliminate the environmental impact of polluting industries, and meet an increasing demand for clean water. Although a wide variety of decontamination technologies are available, most, if not all are complex, costly and/or inefficient. Specifically, addressing the removal of a massive range of organic components to acceptable discharge levels is particularly challenging. The technology has the potential to transform the food waste industry, oil and gas decontamination, and industrial wastewater treatment.
