GreenEvo: Green Technology Accelerator

From EPSA - European Public Sector Award

[edit]

GreenEvo: Green Technology Accelerator is an innovative project from the Ministry of Environment, with the task of promoting environmentally sound technologies and supporting the growth of this sector domestically and abroad. The project aims to support organisations pursuing the development of green technologies in navigating and promoting their unique solutions in international markets. The project can be divided into four stages: selection of technologies for the project; acceleration (training courses, first experiences in technology transfer, reports and analyses concerning strategic foreign markets and the Polish market, analysis of policies for supporting green technologies), selection of laureates; international promotion of the winning technologies; and support for foreign governments interested in the transfer of technologies through the exchange of experience and access to information.

The enterprises selected in the GreenEvo project have gone through a series of specialist training courses. They have been prepared thoroughly to promote and transfer their products, and they have acquired knowledge concerning legal regulations, norms and technical standards applicable in foreign markets. It can be said with certainty that the winners of the GreenEvo project are ready to share their technologies, experiences and knowledge with countries struggling with problems in the following areas:

  • waste water treatment and water purification
  • waste management – including hazardous waste
  • processing agricultural biomass
  • renewable energy sources – including solar collectors
  • clean coking processes
  • energy-efficient and low-emission technologies
  • protection of biodiversity
  • passive and energy-efficient buildings
  • low-emission transport

The GreenEvo brand is the result of the project’s experiences, and the desire to share it with other countries that find themselves in the same position Poland was in just a short time ago. Furthermore, it is a guarantee of technological quality. The project winners constitute a group of the best green technology producers in Poland.

The 2010 edition was the first edition of GreenEvo, and the fourth edition took place in 2013.
