Aquapax is one of the purest mineral waters in the world, with a near perfect 7.065pH natural low mineral balance and practically no (trace) nitrates. Aquapax is suitable for all diets, including for infant hydration. Our water is sealed from light and air, in a non-leaching, majority paper, carton bottle, which is more sustainable to produce and which we believe is more sensible than the alternatives.

Our refillable, reusable and wholly recyclable cartons ultimately keep Aquapax water wholesome and fresh tasting in storage, while also keeping your water temperature cooler for longer.

Spray cork is the ideal replacement for traditional renovation systems. This is due to its wide variety of possible applications, it's also useable as a decorative material. The difference can also be seen in price! In addition, the appearance is spectacular! Unlike paint (cork prevents flaking caused by moisture) and cement render (cork prevents cracks), cork also offers thermal and sound insulation, it breathes and is water-repellent. The manufacturer offers a warranty lasting 10 years relating to the quality of delivered product, which is only applied by certified installers.

  • Energy-efficient
  • Anti-condensation and reduction of thermal bridges
  • Sound insulation (noise reduction up to 8 to 10 decibels)
  • Repair and encapsulation of outer layers (fibre-cement and plates), focused on aesthetic renovation. Spray cork also delivers thermal & sound insulation, and sealing.
  • Protection and repair of roofing. Thermal insulation prevents wear and tear.
  • Long durability. The weather conditions don't impact the durability of spray cork and annual paint jobs are no longer required.
  • Prevents rupture and cracking of facades
  • Suitable for all applications that require better thermal insulation and/or an improved appearance.

Hales Water Turbines Ltd

Hales Water Turbines Ltd is a newly formed research and development company specialising in renewable marine energy.

The company, based in Hastings, East Sussex, has several patents on various forms of tidal stream turbine and is very active in pushing the potential of one design, which is a mechanically very simple, but an extremely rugged tidal stream turbine design called The Hales Turbine. 

To improve the scarcity in the UK and around the world of suitable and economic physical testing facilities associated with developing marine energy devices, Hales Water Turbines Ltd has designed and built a new 32,000 litre water flow test & display tank in-house for 24/7 prototype testing and also hiring to other renewable developers.

Space heating accounts for around 60% of UK domestic energy use and 60% of people admit to heating unoccupied rooms. OpenTRV is an intelligent replacement for a mechanical thermostatic radiator valve (TRV) at a similar price point. OpenTRV provides a simple-to-use controller to reduce the energy use and carbon impact of UK housing stock. It is a mass-market customer-retrofit shrink-wrapped product with a target of 50% reduction in energy use.
OpenTRV as a product is a novel valve controller, an open communications protocol and a boiler controller. OpenTRV as a company will supply reference designs, interoperability certification (akin to the WiFi-Certified programme of the WiFi Alliance) and specialist design services to industry (akin to ARM processor core licensing).

Upside Energy coordinates energy stored in batteries that are already owned. 

The electricity grid is under stress and at peak times, it runs dangerously short of capacity. In order to meet demand, it turns on all its oldest, dirtiest, most expensive power stations. It'd be a lot cheaper and greener to pay people to not use electricity at peak times. That's what we do.

Uninterruptible power supplies (the systems that provide backup power to machine rooms, traffic lights, cellphone towers, etc), solar PV arrays, electric vehicles and similar equipment have a huge collective capacity to store energy. We simply coordinate them to charge their batteries when demand for electricity is low, then to run their equipment from batteries when demand is high.

This creates a "virtual energy store" that we can sell to the grid to help it balance supply and demand. National Grid pays handsomely for such services. We distribute 75% of these payments back to the original equipment owners.

The 'Waterblade' is a water saving device for taps. It is designed to be fitted to virtually any tap. It is suited primarily for hand washing. It works by producing a thin fan shaped veil of water, through which the hand is drawn. Because the veil is continuous every upward facing part of the hand drawn through the veil is wetted or rinsed. 

The 'Waterblade' is patent-pending. The product is currently a full functional prototype. It has been developed with help from a grant from the Technology strategy board at the University of Brighton. We are actively seeking interest from industry.
