Hazer Group
Australia


Hazer Group Limited is an ASX-listed technology development company undertaking the commercialisation of the Hazer Process, a low-emission hydrogen and graphite production process. The Hazer Process enables the effective conversion of natural gas and similar feedstocks, into hydrogen and high quality graphite, using iron ore as a process catalyst. The key difference in the Hazer Process over alternative hydrogen production processes is that the carbon content of the natural gas feed is captured as graphite, rather than converted into carbon dioxide. This graphite is a saleable product, giving the process two valuable products rather than just one and reduces the cost of the process. The process also requires substantially lower energy requirements compared to electrolysis-based hydrogen production, creating significant cost and energy advantages. With carbon emissions captured in the form of solid graphite, Hazer can produce hydrogen with significant lower carbon dioxide emissions, better enabling the use of hydrogen across the developing clean energy market, as well as in large existing chemical processing industries.

The Nano Membrane Toilet
United Kingdom

The Nano Membrane Toilet will treat human waste in the house without external energy or water. The toilet flush uses a rotating mechanism to transport the mixture into the toilet without demanding water whilst simultaneously blocking odour and the user's view of the waste. Solids separation is principally accomplished through sedimentation. Loosely bound water is separated using low glass transition temperature hollow-fibre membranes, facilitating water transport in the vapour state rather than as a liquid and yielding high rejection of pathogens and some odorous volatile compounds. The water is recondensed and drains into a collection vessel for safe reuse at the household level. The residual solids are transported by a mechanical screw into a gasifier, which will convert them into ash and energy to power the membrane processes.

Jan-Willem Muller
COUNT Energy
Jan-Willem Muller
Global Head of Recycling

I am an experienced leader in chemical trading, now passionately pursuing the development of chemical and feedstock recycling.

For the past fifteen years, I’ve been with an independent global trading house, in Seoul, Houston, Singapore and Geneva. In all of these markets, my initial focus has been to launch local businesses or solve critical business issues. In recent years, I managed local operations in Europe with global responsibility for the petrochemical book.

As petrochemical trader, I traded physical products around the globe, contact between industry producers and consumers is crucial. Therefore, I have built an extensive network with all the major global producers and consumers of aromatic chemicals and gasoline components.

Currently, I am developing COUNTS position in chemical recycling. I firmly believe in chemical recycling as a sustainable and economically viable solution for dealing with plastic waste. COUNTS main role in this area is to offtake the produced chemicals from plastic waste and market it through offices in major global trading hubs in Rotterdam and Geneva. In the past two years, I’ve set up a number of chemical recycling projects in close cooperation with recycling partners.

Damien Hirst
2008 & 2009
The 2008 & 2009 CleanEquity Awards were designed by Damien Hirst. Damien Hirst is an English artist and the most prominent member of the group known as "Young British Artists". He is internationally renowned and his consistently visceral, visually arresting works has made him a leading artist of his generation.
Michael Joo
2010 & 2011
The 2010 & 2011 CleanEquity Awards were designed by Michael Joo. Michael Joo, chosen by previous award designer Damien Hirst, was born to Korean parents. He first studied and now lives in New York. Informed by his interests in science, his work refers continually to the natural world. Sculpture is a promenent medium for his art.
Annie Cattrell
2012 & 2013
The 2012 & 2013 awards were sculptures of miniature glass lungs created by London based artist Annie Cattrell and commissioned specifically by CleanEquity Monaco. Annie's work offers a view of what is inside and around us, suggesting the fragility and purity of the human respiratory system and by association the ecosystem on which it depends. By making the invisible visible and the ethereal solid, Annie prompts us to consider our essential vulnerability to environmental conditions and ultimately why cleantech matters.

Annie is drawn to the fusion between science and art. Her subjects reflect an interest in neuroscience, anatomy and meteorology. She works with glass because of its transparency and ability to reveal, using different techniques to push physical and conceptual boundaries.

Annie was born in Glasgow and studied Fine Art at Glasgow School of Art and University of Ulster, as well as Ceramics & Glass at the Royal College of Art. She is senior research fellow in Sculpture at De Montfort University and recently completed a residency based at The Pier Arts Centre in Orkney, where she worked with scientists from Herriot Watt University researching renewable energies.
Peter Regli
2014, 2015 & 2016
Peter Regli was born June 29 1959 in Andermatt, Switzerland. From 1993 to 1996 he attended the Zurich University of the Arts. Since 1995 he has pursued his strategy of Reality Hacking, a series of temporary interventions in public situations. In his work Regli examines the framework of art not only outside museums and galleries but also beyond the familiar parameters of art in public space.

Resisting any specific style, medium, or material, his work explores the poetics of banality, the sublimity of the objects and events constituting everyday life. Indebted to Surrealism, Land art and Conceptual art, his mixed-media installations, sculptures and photographs rely on keen observation and uncanny wit. www.realityhacking.com
Urs Fischer
2017
Born in Zurich in 1973, Fischer deploys a wide range of materials and technologies in his extensive body of work, which encompasses sculpture, painting, and installation. Constantly seeking new sculptural solutions, his bold formal investigations of space, scale, and material are often infused with a biting sense of humor. He lives and works in New York City.
Darren Bader
2018
Darren Bader (b. 1978, Bridgeport (CT)) is an American artist living and working in New York. He received his BFA from New York University in 2000. Bader’s works fall into a number of broad groupings, including word works, pairings, "impossible" sculpture, trash sculpture, and collaborative installation, often exploring the interconnectedness of seemingly disparate objects through complex (re-)arrangements, surprise juxtapositions, and absurd associations.
Samuel de Gunzburg
2019
Samuel de Gunzburg (b.1995, Paris, France) is a French British artist working and living in London. He graduated in 2018 from City & Guilds of London Art School with a BA (Hons) in Fine Art. Previous exhibitions include: Saatchi Gallery, Tripp Gallery, Zari Gallery and Four Corners Gallery.

Gunzburg’s three dimensional work focuses on the vase as a cultural and historical object. His sculptures often present fictional ruin-like bronze vases, on which both historical and metaphorical references to multiple civilisations are made. Gunzburg’s installations explore ways of representing the vase as a divine universal object and discusses the function, curation and status of the historical vase within the historical spaces and institutions of today.
