The Columbia University Consortium for Risk Management generates and disseminates cutting-edge scientific information about the prediction and management of climate and other natural hazards, in combination with advances in risk management and financial engineering. CCRM goes beyond traditional areas of actuarial risks to include emerging types of risks where traditional actuarial methods fail, such as financial risks, risks due to political instability, market risks, company-specific risks, catastrophic reinsurance risks, and risks associated with new technologies. The Consortium is directed by Graciela Chichilnisky, Professor of Economics and Statistics, who has developed a landmark approach to the foundation of statistics, incorporating catastrophic risks--based on a new axiomatic approach that extends the classical treatment to allow more realistic treatment of rare but important events. Drawing on Columbia University's data and research in climate prediction and natural hazards, CCRM specializes in the prediction and management of complex and chaotic systems, securitization of insurance risks, fractal statistics, decision theory under uncertainty, financial engineering and stochastic analysis.

OriginOil's patent-pending, breakthrough technology can provide the world with an endless supply of cost-competitive and environment-friendly oil to displace petroleum. Unlike many current approaches to algae oil cultivation, OriginOil is employing several next-generation technologies to greatly enhance algae cultivation and oil extraction, and to allow scalable industrialization of this process to make algae a high-yield, cost-competitive replacement for petroleum.
FTL Solar's unique patent-pending products are the first and only pre-fabricated, mass produced photovoltaic (PV) tensile structures in the world. FTL Solar's structures are innovative and in this new "Green" age, are an expression of PRACTICAL function and form. FTL Solar structures integrate thin film PV with super strength fabric to create architecturally refined solar canopies, arrays and enclostures that turn sunlight into electricity. As on-site, "off-the-grid" power plants, they produce electricity that can be used immediately, stored in batteries to use generated power at night or even sold back to the utility grid for revenue or discounted electric bill.
Genesis uses dedicated energy crops to develop biomass, biofuel, and bio-chemical projects. These crops allow production of biofuels without detrimental impacts on food supply or the environment. Current initiatives are based on a fast-growth tree called Paulownia and an oilseed called Camelina. These crops grow on marginal land, can remediate soil, and provide opportunities in nearly any climate in the world for biofuel feedstock production. Dedicated energy crops, with integrated conversion technologies, allow security in feedstock supply and pricing, and can provide very good economics for landowners as well as end-product users.

Naturally Scientific is a privately owned and funded company that has spent four years creating its two stage bio-manufacturing platform. In the first stage waste CO2, water (either fresh or salt) and light are combined in a photosynthetic reaction to produce sugars (Sucrose and Glucose). This high quality natural sugar can be sold in either crystalline or syrup form, or alternatively used in the second stage of the Naturally Scientific process. This stage converts these sugars to produce pure vegetable oils (PVO) and their derivatives.
