Asia is the world’s most vulnerable continent when it comes to climate change.
Rising global temperatures pose a threat not only to the way the dynamics of the climate works, but more importantly to everyone’s way of life and every living thing on the planet.
There are significantly more storms and typhoons or hurricanes now as compared to before, and this is an added threat to those countries regularly damaged by these environmental crises.
Moreover, the increasing temperatures also mean more melted ice caps which in turn contribute to rising sea levels across all continents.
To help combat climate change, tech companies in Asia are starting to change the way they work and begin to incorporate green minded solutions into everyone’s way of life! Read on to find out more about these awesome Asian startups!
Headquartered in New Delhi, India, NatureDots creates resource-intelligent and at the same time Nature-based systems and solutions for establishing a climate-resilient, new nature economy.
Their product, AquaNurch, is an aquaculture solution that aims to deliver climate-resilient sustainable fisheries.
They ensure that small to medium-sized fisheries are able to resiliently grow amid all that is happening with climate change. All of this is incorporated with natural and artificial intelligence for stronger fisheries to help with many environmental crises.
They ensure high revenue with an added bonus of easing the way of life of aqua farmers and create “healthy protein” for all.
2. Japan – DAIZ
Japan’s DAIZ produces plant-based meat oozing with umami flavor.
The main objective of the company is to provide “an alternative to meat and contribute to the eradication of world hunger.”
Through this, they developed a cultivation technology that stimulates biological reactions during the germination of soybean seeds. They are then able to make a Miracle Meat by mimicking the texture of meat and can replace various dishes like chicken, meat, pork and beef without letting go of that taste the people so desire.
Based on a study from the University of Illinois, meat, unfortunately, and surprisingly, accounts for 60% of greenhouse gas emissions.
For meat eaters, a gradual reduction in meat consumption will undoubtedly make a huge positive impact on the planet. Let us make this happen sooner rather than later.
Hopefully, DAIZ can play a big role in not only eradicating world hunger, but also transition people into energy soy-based meat alternatives.
Pyroclave is among RAD Green Solutions’ innovative works that helps create energy-efficient solutions to processing bio-medical waste.
They possess machines with high processing volumes for treating medical wastes until they become safe for disposal.
RAD Green solutions has become one of those startups that have been advocating for a safer bio-medical waste disposal.
With the ongoing issue on HIV-AIDS and how bio-medical wastes play a part in the contribution of this problem, most especially to people exposed to these bio-medical wastes regularly, RAD Green solutions significantly makes a difference in not only repurposing these wastes but also in significantly reducing the risks of being exposed to bio-medical waste.
When it comes to portable solar powers solutions made available to consumers, Third Wave Power does not disappoint.
With Third Wave Power, products that are not typically accessible by consumers are offered for use in their daily activities.
Their products include solar chargers, power banks, emergency kits, solar lamps, and solar panels for rural and urban homes.
These are products that are highly relevant to consumers nowadays given the increasing trend in sustainable livelihood while at the same time a means for families to save significantly on monthly costs, especially on electricity.
ATEC Biodigesters convert farm waste like green wastes and animal manure into biogas and organic fertilizers.
Biogas can be used by farmers in their kitchens while organic fertilizers become essential in ensuring healthy soil for better crop quality.
ATEC Biodigesters help farmers not only become sustainable but also reduce production capacity and reduce costs significantly.
Companies are gradually starting to reassess the way they work and practice sustainability in the little things they do.
From food corporations incorporating organic food and/or biodegradable packaging to big tech companies using solar energy, little by little, we are starting to realize how important reducing one’s carbon footprint is, and how significantly it plays a role in the sustainability of the globe in the decades to come.
Let’s all together own up and continue combatting climate change not only in Asia, but also around the world.
