Tom Robinson talks to London Live About His Low-carbon Innovation, Breathaboard

Fri, 15 April 2016

2015 Shell LiveWIRE Young Entrepreneur of the Year, Tom Robinson, has been broadcast citywide in a recent television interview with London Live.
Tom scooped £25,000 in start-up funding and the Shell LiveWIRE Young Entrepreneur of the Year title for Breathaboard, a bio-based alternative to plasterboard that is made of 75% plant matter. The win followed on from his £5,000 Shell LiveWIRE Smarter Future Award success back in June 2015.
In the interview, Tom discusses his win and how the funding will help the Adaptavate team to push forward the development of the bio-based building product which locks carbon into the fabric of buildings: ‘We’re in an R & D phase at the moment and the Shell LiveWIRE funding and support has really helped us catalyse that.’ 
The low carbon innovator was also keen to inspire other potential entrepreneurs into action: ‘There are an endless number of opportunities out there – we need answers to some of the big questions about materials, about energy, about health about, the future security of these things. And that provides great opportunities for other people that have ideas.’
