VentureClass: Fizzy Transition – from CO2 Storage to Coral Nurseries, and more

It’s our pleasure to announce the next VentureClass of 2020 on Thursday evening 27 February by VentureLab alumn Ludo van Hijfte of Fizzy Transitions.

Fizzy Transitions

Fizzy Transition Ventures delivers solutions for a smooth transition to a sustainable world by building on the foundations of our current infrastructure. We are front runners in building the “carbon capture and storage (CCS)” chain by developing the world’s first CO2 transportation system over water that delivers directly to depleted offshore gas fields. In parallel we are designing super-diversity “ECO-Reefs” on existing offshore structures that help restore the marine environment and can support both eco-tourism and local communities.
