Enexor BioEnergy, LLC, said it has been selected as one of 11 companies in North America to participate in the inaugural Google for Startups Accelerator: Climate Change.
Launching in June, the three-month program grants climate-change-focused start-ups access to Google programs, products, people and technology.
Enexor’s patented Bio-CHP system converts almost any organic, plastic or biomass waste into reliable, renewable power and thermal energy while concurrently reducing carbon emissions and ultimately mitigating climate change, according to the company. The system is modular and easily transportable said Enexor and the plug-and-play design allows for quick deployment and on-site mobilization in most places around the world.
Through this partnership, Enexor will accelerate the commercialization of its solution.
“I am eager to welcome Enexor into the first Google for Startups Accelerator: Climate Change cohort and support the company’s ambitious mission: solving the world’s organic, biomass and plastic waste overabundance problem,” said Jason Scott, head of Startup Developer Ecosystems at Google. “The team highlights Tennessee’s growing entrepreneurial ecosystem, and we couldn’t be happier to advance their solution with Google’s mentorship and machine learning expertise.”
“This is a major boost for our technology and a great honor to be selected by Google for the launch of its accelerator program,” said Enexor’s founder and CEO, Lee Jestings. “We believe Google’s deep technical, engineering and novel machine learning expertise will dramatically accelerate commercialization of our renewable energy and carbon reduction technology and help us deploy our systems to the neediest places in the world.”
This is the second major alliance announcement in recent days for Enexor, following its selection as one of three companies to join Halliburton Labs’ inaugural clean technology accelerator program in February. Later that month, Enexor was selected by the United Nations as one of the winners of its World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) Sustainable Development Goals Global Startup Competition, the only U.S. winner in the Affordable and Clean Energy category.
