Dublin‘s HT Materials Science has been selected to participate in the Amazon Sustainability Accelerator, joining 15 other European start-ups in the initiative’s third edition. The accelerator offers a four-week programme designed to empower start-ups addressing global sustainability challenges.

HT Materials Science, founded in 2018, has developed a retrofit solution that enhances heating and cooling systems’ efficiency.  This technology, named Maxwell heat transfer fluids, can be integrated into existing commercial and industrial systems, delivering significant energy savings of up to 15% while reducing carbon dioxide emissions.

The expanded accelerator programme, a partnership between Amazon, EIT Climate-KIC and Founders Intelligence, aims to support entrepreneurs in scaling their sustainable solutions.

Thomas Grizzetti, Chief Executive Officer of HT Materials Science, said: “Between 1990 and 2020, energy used for cooling tripled and will continue to increase as global economies expand and temperatures rise.”

Zak Watts, Amazon’s International Director of Sustainability said: “The scope of businesses involved means we can support even more entrepreneurs to reach their potential.  “Not to mention the one of a kind opportunity to test their technology directly with parts of Amazon’s business.”
