Qaptis is supported by EPFL Innogrants

EPFL is pleased to announce that three promising startups Corintis, Omnigrasp and Qaptis, joined the EPFL Tech-Launchpad and received an Innogrant of CHF 100,000 each.

With the EU’s commitment to become carbon neutral by 2050, new solutions are needed to accelerate our efforts to reduce harmful CO2 emissions from vehicles. Qaptis is developing technology which retrofits vehicles and engines with a CO2 capture kit. The technology is installed on trucks and ships to capture 90% of the C02 emissions released at source, storing it in liquid form and put on the CO2 market to be re-used.
