Newlight Technologies, Cognition Foundry and IBM LinuxONE™ | When innovation meets greenhouse gases


– When we started, everybody
was looking at greenhouse gas
as a problem and our idea was well,
what if there’s some
good in greenhouse gas?
What if we could harness
that as a material resource
and use that as a solution
to solve other problems?
(soft upbeat music)
What we discovered was that
you could turn greenhouse gas
into this really beautiful
molecule that we call AirCarbon®,
an energy molecule that is
made in all living things.
It just so happens that it is meltable,
meaning that we can turn it
into a range of parts and pieces
from fibers to solid
sheets to solid parts.
So that enables us to
make products that can go
into everything from
electronics to automotive
to fashion to foodware.
We have a vision about how we want
to go about tackling this problem.
And we need partners in that process.
For us, it’s kind of been
the perfect one-two punch
between Cognition Foundry and IBM®.
This really amazing combination
of entrepreneurial spirit
and flexibility and speed
really has made it easy
for us to work together
and build something great.
But what’s really cool is that it’s tied
into the fantastic
infrastructure that comes
from IBM and LinuxONE.
– LinuxONE offers scalability,
offers reliability.
It offers simplicity.
The system is designed
to grow to massive scale.
And that’s very important
for companies that are going
to look to grow very, very aggressively.
Newlight’s technology is so
incredible that it’s hard
for people to believe that
the polymer, the AirCarbon
comes from where it comes from.
It can generate a similar
product that can be used
in exactly the same way as plastic.
– We look to our technology
partner, Cognition Foundry,
to provide consumers with
unparalleled transparency metrics
with IBM-backed blockchain technology.
We’re able to come up with a solution
where you could take a
given product and look
at the specific environmental
impact of that product
backed by and verified
by blockchain technology.
– I’m very excited to work with companies
that have got the passion to
create change in the world
and the ability to make it happen.
– For us, it’s all
about empowering people.
We think blockchain is empowering
because it gives consumers
the ability to really understand
what is the environmental
impact of this product.
And that gives them the ability to choose,
what kind of impact do I wanna have.
