The First "Green Deal" Funding Received By The European Innovation Council

We are excited to share that PlanetCare has been awarded a grant for an R&D project as part of the first “Green Deal” funding from the European Innovation Council.

August 2020 brought more game-changing news. PlanetCare was selected among thousands of other innovative solutions to receive a grant for an R&D project as part of the first “Green Deal” funding from the European Innovation Council.

With the grant, PlanetCare will develop a built-in filter for washing machines. With the availability of the built-in filtering technology the positive impact will scale for several orders of magnitude and will set a new standard for a truly sustainable way to do laundry. The built-in filter will also be available for the service industry, furthering its potential for replication and pollution prevention.

“It is a great honour to be selected among thousands of other innovative solutions. With so many transformative businesses pursuing the vision of living in a better, healthier, environment as well as building a cohesive and inclusive society, I am very hopeful for the future. At PlanetCare we will continue to work passionately towards fully stopping the harmful microfiber pollution. This grant brings us closer to making oceans plastic-free again and we are grateful for the opportunity to support the recovery plan for Europe.”
