UniSieve, a Swiss start-up, has recently secured $5.5 million in seed funding to expand its technology aimed at reducing carbon emissions and operational costs in heavy industries, including plastics, chemicals, and energy companies. UniSieve’s high-precision membrane with special crystals filters specific molecules and ions from flue gas, providing a cleaner and more energy-efficient solution compared to traditional chemical separation processes.
UniSieve’s technology can be integrated into existing manufacturing systems and is already making revenue, with over 24 clients, including chemical and energy companies. The company is currently focused on CO2 capture and is also piloting hydrocarbon separation applications. Investors in the round included Amadeus Apex Technology Fund, Wingman Ventures, CIECH Ventures, and Zürcher Kantonalbank. The reduction of carbon emissions is a critical environmental concern, and UniSieve’s technology offers a sustainable solution to heavy industries by reducing their carbon footprint. The technology’s energy efficiency is also beneficial to companies by lowering their operational costs.
UniSieve’s technology also offers a scalable solution to the challenges of separation and purification of chemicals and gases in heavy industries. With the ability to filter specific molecules and ions with high precision, UniSieve’s technology is versatile and can be adapted to many different applications, including separating gases other than CO2.
Overall, UniSieve’s technology has the potential to address a key environmental issue by reducing pollution from industrial processes. Its innovative approach to filtration and purification, combined with its scalability, could make it a game-changer for heavy industries looking to reduce their carbon footprint and operational costs.
