Award Winning green team 

Bergen Carbon Solutions won the “Vil litt mer” and the “Spir-prize” for developing an energy efficient production-method where they make carbon nano fiber out of CO2. 
Using only renewable energy, the carbon nano fiber is produced by extracting carbon from CO2 emission. With the only bi-product being oxygen (O2 ), the production process is carbon negative. Bergen Carbon Solutions calls it green carbon nano fiber.

- Receiving these awards meant a lot for us and the company. First of all, the prize gave us the opportunity to work with PwC on market sizing, mapping the competitive landscape and developing our strategy in addition to receiving legal counsel.

PwC have kept us actively involved in the process, challenged us to be innovative and delivered a product exceeding our expectations, says Sagmo.
