SHIFT further increases impact in F&A chain
Shift Invest closes a partnership agreement with Startlife, the incubator and accelerator of Wageningen University, focused on growing Dutch Food&Agri startups. The partnership is therefore in line with SHIFT's mission to support early-stage companies to realise impact in the global F&A chain. 
 
New projects for portfolio company HeatMatrix
HeatMatrix has contracted two new customers. For the Mol Group, HeatMatrix will install two large Polymer Air Preheaters saving 3,5 to 5 MW in primary energy. For Sonac a heat-exchanger system that increases boiler efficiency will be installed. Both projects allow for considerable reduction of CO2 emissions. 
SHIFT supports innovative water purification technology
By providing a seed investment, SHIFT Invest enables water treatment company CEVAP Technology to further commercialize its product: a prototype that uses abundantly available waste heat to efficiently drive purification of waste-water streams and produce affordable drinking water on a small scale.
Join SHIFT at F&A Next 2017 in Wageningen!
