Deep in the Mediterranean and beyond, a silent but powerful transformation is underway. It is the advent of the blue and green economy, where technological innovations are revolutionising the way we exploit and preserve our precious marine and terrestrial resources. The blue economy, focused on the sustainability of maritime activities such as fishing, maritime transport and marine renewable energies, is joining forces with the green economy in a common quest for ecological progress. Together, they are redefining the way we interact with our environment, seeking innovative solutions for a cleaner, more prosperous future.


The latest innovations in the green & blue economy : 

The green economy :

On fertile land, the green economy is giving rise to technological marvels such as the bifacial photovoltaic solar panels developed by  photowatt, floating offshore wind and binary-cycle geothermal power stations. 







Companies like Valeo are leading the way towards sustainable mobility in 29 countries, offering innovative systems and equipment to reduce CO2 emissions and develop intuitive driving thanks to their commitment to electrification.


vehicles and the development of green technologies.

Energy storage is also making remarkable progress,

with proposed molten salt heat storage systems

by benchmark companies in the field of energy transition and decarbonisation of industry, such as TSK.








In the circular economy, companies such as Loop Industries are leading the way in the chemical recycling of plastics with depolymerisation technology. Loop breaks down previously non-recyclable PET (polyethylene terephthalate) plastic and polyester fibre waste into its basic components, dimethyl terephthalate (DMT) and monoethylene glycol (MEG), using low heat and no additional pressure, while Reflow is exploiting 3D printers to repair objects.



Sustainable agriculture is also undergoing a revolution, with vertical urban greenhouses developed by AeroFarms and autonomous weeding robots designed by Naio Technologies.



the blue economy :


Let's turn now to the oceans, where the blue economy is providing innovative solutions. Sustainable aquaculture is thriving thanks to integrated multi-trophic systems like those of Project CEVA. Marine renewable energy is making waves with underwater tidal turbines like those from Orbital Marine Power. Seawater desalination is becoming more efficient thanks to Trevi Systems high-performance reverse osmosis technologies.


Maritime transport is turning to cleaner options, such as the wind-powered ships proposed by Norsepower. Innovative coastal protection is also making inroads, with projects such as Seawater Greenhouse's coastal greenhouses. And to monitor these precious marine ecosystems, organisations like The Ocean Cleanup are using drones and satellites to detect and map plastic waste.


After exploring these innovations in the blue and green economy, it is possible that you are a startup that is revolutionising the blue or green economy in Algeria . If so, don't let this opportunity pass you by, it could make your ambitions a reality.
