Above Materials is developing an innovative solution (Poly-X) to convert human metabolic waste into polymers. Waste materials present on human-occupied space stations that otherwise must be disposed can be converted into useful polymers, to produce tools, personal protective equipment, medical devices, etc.
The Genderless Dust Passive Power Connector consists of a symmetrical connector designed to transmit information and current. Earth's infrastructure is unsuitable for the hard environment of the Moon and transmission of electricity is one of the key activities necessary for smooth functioning of Lunar Habitats.
Lunar Outpost EU is developing technology for effective utilization of thermal energy during the harsh conditions of the lunar night. Their solution leverages resources found on the lunar surface to be cost effective and scalable. Applied on Earth, this technology can enable clean energy and improve efficiency.
Terra Luna aims to solve the challenge of converting mined ice into purified water, by developing a new, patentable, in-space “solar-still” style technology to refine lunar ice into water.
