UNNC start-up goes to Rome

A UNNC alumni start-up company gained international recognition and acclaim after a business presentation at the Vatican earlier this week.

Representatives from the company Innov8tia presented their industrial sludge cleaning technology to the assembled guests at the Laudato Si’ Challenge. Invitees included Vatican dignitaries and over one hundred investment fund managers. The company was the only representative from Asia at the event.

Innov8tia – which obtained a UNNC patent to develop the technology - runs its business from the new Incubator. It has already attracted over 100 million USD in sponsorship to speed up the commercial application of its innovative sludge cleaning treatment.
