Toronto, Ontario, November 4, 2021 – GreenBank Capital Inc. (CSE: GBC and OTCMKTS: GRNBF and FRA: 2TL) (“GreenBank” or “the Company”) is very pleased to announce that its portfolio company CodiKoat has beaten a very strong field to win a nationwide competition in the United Kingdom designed to find the best solutions to provide clean air in residential environments.
CodiKoat was one of 49 companies that took part in a competition by Innovate UK, a United Kingdom non-departmental public body see to help solve the serious problem of NOX and SO2 gases as well as particulate matter. (See https://www.gov.uk/government/organisations/innovate-uk) Innovate UK considered this problem so important that they were offering up to £1m to help bring the best technology quickly into commercialisation.
After a grueling selection process CodiKoat won the Award and has been given a £883,218 (~C$1.5m) grant. During the process CodiKoat identified one of the UK’s largest 250 public companies as the best company with which to commercialise the CodiKoat clean air technology. Discussions between the two companies have commenced with a view to finalising a detailed MOU.
