Pulkit: Illumina Africa’s mission is to provide sustainable energy and water infrastructure to every single individual on our planet and the wider universe. Currently, we build, own, and operate, solar photovoltaic power plants and provide low-cost sustainable electricity to industries, offices, residential and off-grid individuals.
Kari: There are various challenges we face as human beings, and that is why BIOVATEC seeks to contribute to the development of sustainable and eco-efficient solutions. We do this with a scientific-technological base to promote innovation through projects that tackle environmental problems. We also highlight the opportunities that biotechnology offers us and that new things can be created from very basic or complex problems. This is actually how we developed NoPlastic, one of the main projects at BIOVATEC, with the aim of combating plastic pollution and food waste. We also offer support and collaboration with different sectors to generate social, environmental, and economic benefits.
Laís: Did you know that one billion people live without electricity in the world, and in Brazil, there are two million people in this situation? Working in all five regions of the country, Litro de Luz Brasil brings solar lighting to communities that don’t have adequate access to energy. We provide solar street lights, solar hand lights, and solar internal lights, composed of simple materials such as plastic bottles and PVC pipes. We also provide solar panels, batteries, and LEDs. We also teach the residents how to build and maintain the technology. Our mission is to improve people's quality of life through sustainable lighting solutions and empower transformation agents.
