AirGuard Industries (HK) Limited

AirGuard Industries (HK) Limited is a start-up company that offers an Interior Air Quality solution: the testing of interior air, its constant cleansing by an award-winning, all-natural liquid formulation via active air purification technology, and the ongoing monitoring of air quality.
Unlike other products in the air sanitation market that contain noxious chemicals or use ionization, both of which are harmful to health (especially for young children), our AirGuard™ solution is plant-based, non-toxic and entirely bio-degradable. It works by moving through the air by way of active air technology, and as it moves in vaporized form it disables and inactivates Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), bacteria, molds, viruses and pathogens, including SARS-CoV-2 (the COVID-19 virus).
Our service is a huge competitive differentiator for any institution – be it a food producer, school, hotel, bank, business office, entertainment venue, etc. – that believes clean internal air is indispensable in ensuring product safety and the health of its employees and clients. Our green credentials further serve to enhance a company’s commitment to Environment, Social and Governance (ESG) criteria as well as to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, though it should be added that our technology can equally be applied for home use.

Algal Bio Co., Ltd.

Algal Bio Co., Ltd., a biotech startup, was established in March 2018 based upon 20 years of research results at the University of Tokyo. We possess around 3000 algae strains.These algae strains produce naturally occurring functional substances such as carotenoids, long chain unsaturated fatty acids , protein and oils. In addition to the strains isolated from the environment, these algae strains include strains obtained by mutation breeding with heavy ion-beam irradiation. The need for biologically-derived functional substances is increasing globally due to consumer health and natural orientation, the avoidance of genetic modification, and various regulations on chemically synthesized substances. Our algae strain does not use genetic recombination technology, so it can meet a wide range of needs. We can provide functional substance, functional foods (health foods and supplements), cosmetics, functional beverages, natural additives, medicines and biofuels, etc.
