• SECOND CALL FOR LOW-CARBON SOLUTIONS

    The second call for low-carbon solutions is open.
    You have until July 31st 2020 to submit your low-carbon solutions, fighting global warming.

    The second call for solutions' themes

    SEKOYA's partners seek to identify innovative solutions in the following areas:

    1. Low-carbon design and construction
      1. Constructive processes and low-carbon materials
      2. Carbon sobriety in logistics and site life
      3. Waste : sobriety at the source, valuation, recovery/re-use, traceability / waste accounting
    2. Low-carbon uses and exploitation
      1. Waste and bio-waste in urban areas : logistics, collection, traceability, recovery (2023 – 2025 : change in regulations with obligation to sort bio-waste and recover it)
      2. Sustainable and low-carbon port and airport infrastructures
      3. Carbon sobriety of buildings and their uses

    HOW DOES SEKOYA WORK?

    The Carbon & Climate platform seeks to identify and qualify innovative, sustainable and low-carbon solutions through an online application process. Eiffage and its partners will qualify the most effective solutions (via a carbon footprint statement and a life cycle analysis) with a potential to contribute to a more frugal construction.

    The platform is technically operated and hosted by the Impulse Labs accelerator, an actor experienced in identifying innovative solutions since its creation.

    FOCUS ON CARBON & CLIMATE ISSUES:

    New Forms of Mobility

     

    • Optimise mobility fluidity in congested urban areas (signage, digital control, adaptation to real flows...).
    • Enhance the attractiveness and intuitive understanding of public transportation offers for all types of users.
    • Promote low-carbon forms of mobility and urban land use.
     
     

    Biodiversity and Ecological Engineering

    • Reintegrate nature into cities as a source of ecosystem services: creation of freshness isles, urban agriculture and short circuits, use of CO2 for agricultural purposes, etc.
    • Develop solutions to restore degraded natural areas (soil stabilisation, water infiltration, soil decontamination by plants, renaturalisation of mineral areas, etc.).
    • Tool to evaluate the quantities of stored biogenic carbon.

    Low-carbon Design and Implementation

    • Systemise the use of low-carbon materials.
    • Propose an efficient, biosourced insulation for new and renovated buildings.
    • Develop industrialised solutions for energetic renovation.
    • Design buildings with scalable uses and without structural costs.
     
     
     

    Methods and Tools

     

    • Absorb CO2 in cities and rural areas by reintroducing green spaces into our projects.

    Circular Economy

     

    • Develop rapid resource diagnostic solutions designed used before existing buildings' demolition.
    • Develop physical and/or virtual exchange systems between supply and demand for land, materials, equipment, etc.
    • Develop solutions for on-site reuse of concrete and aggregates in construction, infrastructure, treatment of deconstructed materials before reuse, etc.

    Renewable Energies and Energetic Performance​

    • Propose upstream diagnostic systems for the use of local renewable energies.
    • Develop any energy-saving solution.
    • Develop new solutions for renewable energy production and recovery.
    • CO2 capture processes.
