The Castellón technology-based firm has participated in the exclusive Calling2Scale programme, which supports European and Israeli start-ups, held in Tel Aviv (Israel) and shown its innovation in the Renewable energies and plastic substitutes area

BluePlasma Power, a firm based at Espaitec, has travelled to the Israeli city of Tel Aviv to participate in Calling2Scale, an exclusive programme that supports the most outstanding European and Israelis start-ups and offers the chance to be trained for 2 months to promote market penetration, especially for the Israeli market. Calling2Scale strategically and efficiently trains and improves the capacity of European and Israeli start-ups to enter and scale up on new global markets by making the most of their international partners and experts.

The Calling2Scale programme is organised by the EIT Hub Israel, which is answerable to the European Innovation and Technology Institute (EIT), and consists in a 12-week introduction plan for European and Israeli start-ups that comes with practical support and group workshops given by expert professionals from the Israeli innovation ecosystem. It focuses on three main technology areas: Health, Renewable energies and plastic substitutes, and Alternative fuels.

It is worth noting that BluePlasma Power was one of the 13 firms selected from the more than 70 candidate European start-ups in its category (Renewable energies and plastic substitutes), which indicates the leading technology of this firm based in Castellón in the plastic substitutes and alternative fuels sector. As pointed out by Mario Araya, technical CEO and founder of the firm, «We are pleased to have been selected for this Bootcamp because it offers us a strong support and guidance ecosystem to scale up the BluePlasma Power technology through a firm that truly seeks innovation by supporting leading technologies to be scaled up».

BluePlasma Power

BluePlasma Power is a company with its own patented technology that specialises in valuing organic waste for products with high added value. This technology reduces CO2 emissions by respecting environmental commitment. It also makes conventional fuels profitable by increasing their efficiency and helping to make considerable energy savings.

This technology-based firm’s speciality lies in integrating existing technologies that form a synergy to obtain innovative compact production lines by producing low-cost end products in situ. The technology that it has developed and patented allows, on the one hand, to value solid organic waste that cannot be recycled by conventional technologies with technology based on plasma photocatalytic hydrogasification (HGC) to obtain hydrogen and synthesis gas to convert it into electric energy and thermal energy, or even a liquid bioproduct that can be used as a biosolvent for the chemical industry or as a bio-additive for diesel and petrol.

On the other hand, the technology that this firm develops allows natural gas to be reformed by plasma photocatalytic hydrogasification (HGC), which results in lower investments, doubles the efficiency of conventional technologies and acts as a carbon dioxide (CO2) sink by contributing to energy independence, creating jobs and improving rural economy.
