Thomas Robinson wins June's Shell LiveWIRE Smarter Future Award!

Thu, 13 August 2015

Thomas Robinson won June’s Shell LiveWIRE Smarter Future Award for his business, Adaptavate.
Adaptavate are completely rethinking and redesigning how the new generation of building materials are made. Adaptavate are developing bio-based building products that lock carbon into the fabric of buildings, helping to mitigate CO2 driven climate change. Adaptavate's first product, Breathaboard, is a bio-based alternative to the ubiquitous building material used for internal lining in buildings: plasterboard. It's installed in exactly the same way, except it provides a carbon sequestering potential to help mitigate CO2 driven climate change, and it is made of 75% plant matter so it provides a renewable solution to the 15 million tonnes of plasterboard that goes to landfill each year globally. 
Commiserations to Risha Jindal (DIGIMEAL), Filippo Massarelli (Ikinen), Thor Schuitemaker-Wichstrøm (CAVENTOU) and Andrei Toma (Homepod) who were shortlisted but did not win this time and are encouraged to reapply.
