In October 2021 the Tubot robotic startup (part of the TechnoSpark group of companies of the Fund for Infrastructure and Educational Programs of the Rusnano Group) placed second in the ecoINNOVATOR MENDELEEV competition. The competition was organized by the Green Moscow intersectoral environmental cluster.
The competition identifies the best innovative projects in the field of environment, green chemistry, and biotechnology and promotes their development. Startups with a competitive product, technology or solution, and commercial potential were selected to participate in the following four sections of the competition:
- clean water;
- clean air;
- comfortable urban environment;
- plastics and composites recycling.
Participants presented their projects at a pitch session. The expert jury selected three winning startups during that session. Tubot has already participated in several pilot projects. It was ranked second as a product developer for monitoring difficult-to-reach branched process pipelines. This product helps to prevent accidents and environmental damage. Winning the competition allow Tubot to present its developments to industrial companies and industrial partners of the program (Vladimir Chemical Plant, SIBUR and others), private and institutional investors.
“Robotic in-line diagnostics identifies most of the causes of accidents and prevents both environmental damage and risk to personnel, as well as fines and reputational costs. In the accelerator, a startup is seen as a partner who develops a common innovation ecosystem, and who offers a science-intensive solution to cross-disciplinary problems.”
