Date:2/20/2014

LONDON , UK British start-ups Straw Fuels and AdFerTech have won prizes worth 20.000 each this month in an award-scheme supported by the EU's main climate innovation initiative, Climate-KIC.

Sustainable fertiliser start-up AdFerTech took home the Climate-KIC Early Stage Entrepreneurs Prize, which will see the start-up entering the 20.000 first stage of Climate-KIC's pan-European start-up Acceleration Programme. Straw Fuels, which produces eco-friendly fire logs, won the 20.000 Climate-KIC Business Creation prize.

The sell-out Cleantech Innovate 2014 event, held at the headquarters of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers in London on 12 February, featured a key-note speech by Greg Barker, Minister of State for the UK's Department of Energy & Climate Change.

"I am delighted that we were able to support CleanTech Innovate once again this year," said Climate-KIC UK director Richard Templer, "As the UK's largest clean-tech innovation showcase it is important to demonstrate the cutting-edge technologies developing in the clean-tech sector."

Headquartered in London, the EU's largest public-private climate innovation partnership is focused on practical short- and long-term solutions for mitigating and adapting to climate change and creating sustainable growth an jobs.

Forty British growth-oriented and venture-ready companies pitched their technologies at the event organised by green-industry business network ecoConnect.

Waste liquor

AdFerTech has developed technology to turn waste liquor, a by-product of biogas generation, into low-cost, organic granular fertiliser.

The nutrients contained within the liquor are concentrated onto solids to higher levels which can be stored, transported easily and later used as a fertiliser.

"AdFerTech would like to thank Climate-KIC for their support and fantastic award," said Quinton Fivelman, director at AdFerTech. "We are thrilled
