Research Manager: Cona Somers

Cona supports the Hive Ventures team to investigate marine based circular economy businesses, which themselves will sequester carbon to remove large amounts of Co2 from the atmosphere.

At Hive Energy, we are always seeking new technologies and opportunities to reduce carbon emissions and develop the circular economy. 

In an exciting first 12 months, we successfully created joint ventures with DBG Bioenergy, CuanTec and Nafici Environmental Research. All three companies are carbon-negative businesses which process industrial waste streams using novel technologies. They transform waste into valuable products which replace the existing fossil-fuel-based alternatives. 

The team also paired up with Packamama, a unique packaging company based in the UK.
