• SECOND CALL FOR LOW-CARBON SOLUTIONS

    The second call for low carbon solutions is now closed.
    SEKOYA's partners will announce the finalists of the second call for solutions in the coming weeks.

    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.
