We redefine material upcycling to address the most pressing problems in the global clean energy sector- lack of energy resources, environmental pollution, affordability and cultural desirability.
We bring the services and skills of a building technology startup, agrowaste consultancy and architecture design company under the AMBIS umbrella.
AMBIS is the December 2016 Issue, "Building with Sustainable Fiber".
AMBIS was invited to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and Climate Change organized by the The New York Academy of Sciences, with encouragement from the UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon and with the support of the UN Special Adviser on the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and Climate Change, David Nabarro. The Summit brought together leaders from academia, industry, civil society, member states, UN agencies and intergovernmental organizations.
AMBIS makes the alternate shortlist for SXSW "Reuse and Recycling" Pitch Competition. The Reuse + Recycling category of this exciting live pitch competition features eight startups using waste to make building materials and consumer products, making waste processing smarter through robotics and sensors, creating more efficient facilities to process organic waste, remediating land through bio-products, and recycling carbon fiber for aeronautics. Each pitch is followed by a Q+A session with the panel of judge.
Founded by the world reknowned writer and education, Efua Sutherland, the foundation's 2-acre urban facility will host a longterm research CASE testbed, in partnership with local research institutions and CASE startup-AMBIS Technologies. Located in Accra, Mmofrais an urban lab for sustainable design, culture, arts and children's education. In the first week of October Mmofra Foundation will be hosting a Climate Change Exhibition where the AMBIS wall prototype will be open to the public. The testbed will integrate, monitor and reiterate the development of modular, affordable building integrated systems for energy generation, storage and distribution applications.
AMBIS collaborates with CASE-RPI, e2e Materials and Malloya for the Chale Wote: Spirit Robot Festival.
76West is an unparalleled competition focused on growing entrepreneurs and attracting resources from the U.S. and around the world to build clean energy businesses and jobs in New York State's Southern Tier region. The competition offers $20 million in prize money and support services, including a $1 million top prize.
AMBIS completes NEXUS Phase 2 Clean Energy Seed Program
New York’s Advanced Energy series will once again be held at New York City’s Javits Center, where it broke all previous records for participation and attendance in 2013. In attracting energy industry leaders and researchers from 22 countries, it established itself as one of the nation's foremost and widest-ranging conferences on energy technologies.
For seven years, Rensselaer researchers at CASE in New York City and in the School of Architecture on the Troy campus have been developing building products from coconuts and other agricultural waste as a sustainable, low-energy alternative to plywood and other materials made with synthetic adhesives. They are using coconuts to create non-toxic wall modules and an acoustical panel system that can help cool buildings passively. The research epitomizes the goals of The New Polytechnic, a new paradigm for learning and research at Rensselaer that addresses difficult and complex global challenges, the need for interdisciplinarity and true collaboration, and the use of the latest tools and technologies, many of which are developed at Rensselaer.
AMBIS presents at the NYSERDA POCC meeting.
In partnership with e2e Materials, AMBIS produces first high fidelity prototype binder made from coconut husk fibers and soy-adhesive bioresin.
Leading cleantech startups from the NEXUS-NY and PowerBridgeNY programs were celebrated at the NYC CleanTech Summit this fall. The event was held at the New York Law School and featured champions from the Northeast’s cleantech business community, including President of NECEC Peter Rothstein and John B. Rhodes, President and CEO of the New York Research & Development Authority (NYSERDA). Keynote for the 2015 NYC Cleantech Summit was Drew FitzGerald, cofounder of JUST and founder of Facet Creative. FitzGerald spoke about celebrity giving and philanthropic cleantech investments. The Cleantech Summit is part of the NECEC’s NorthEast Cleantech & Energy Innovation Tour, a two-week series of events in NYC and Boston designed to bring together the Northeast’s leading cleantech business community. Participating NEXUS-NY startups included AMBIS, ChromaNanoTech, eColectro, Molecular Glasses, PEMtek and Xallent.
The Upstate New York Clean Energy Event celebrated the most promising clean energy companies in New York. The graduating class of NEXUS-NY cohort 2 shared updates on the progresses made after undergoing the NEXUS-NY Clean Energy Seed Accelerator, while world renowned keynote speaker, Dr. Brian Greene, spoke about innovation, exploration and discovery. The event also included a special book signing with Professor Greene, tours of the beautiful George Eastman Museum and a cocktail reception for all whom attended. Here is a photo gallery of the Upstate New York Clean Energy Event and NEXUS-NY Demo Day.
NEXUS-NY is a clean energy seed accelerator. Each year we provide financial, business and educational support to around 10 entrepreneurial teams which are selected through a competitive application process. Program participants are eligible to receive approximately $50,000 of equity-free direct financial support. NEXUS-NY is a program of High Tech Rochester (HTR) and is supported by New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA)
