With the Solar Impulse Foundation, Bertrand Piccard wants to select a total of 1000 innovative solutions that can profitably protect the environment. The hydrogen technology of the Munich-based Clean Mobility Start-up KEYOU is one of these solutions – so far, almost 700 were selected worldwide. One of the objectives of the Solar Impulse Foundation is to connect the selected companies with decision-makers from politics and business to achieve environmental goals more quickly. “There is huge interest in our technology, not only from our direct customers, for instance, engine or vehicle manufacturers but also from end customers as well as transport companies, logistics, and freight forwarding companies with their truck fleets. Of course, we are delighted to be part of the #1000solutions program,” says Thomas Korn, co-founder, and CEO of KEYOU.
The jury’s statement reads: “…large capacities for the production of combustion engines are already available worldwide… KEYOU makes it possible to use these machines for the production of internal combustion engines, thus preventing these machines from contributing to waste, landfill, or recycling, which would otherwise have harmed the environment”.
