When you decide to apply, you should choose one of these Six categories that best fits your start-up idea.
GCIP Malaysia Categories
Detailed descriptions of each of these categories are given below.
Definition: The Energy Efficiency category includes technologies that enables us to save energy in industrial processes, commercial applications as well as at home. Saving energy reduces greenhouse gas emissions and has also a positive impact on expenditures on energy. Examples include advanced light sources and controls, smart/ user friendly energy management systems, energy efficient water heaters and other appliances, high efficiency industrial process systems, energy efficient technologies for construction, motors, pumps, and advanced heat sensor and cooling systems.
Definition: This category includes technologies which address drinking water distribution, usage or treatment, recycling & reuse of industrial and household water and inIsludge management, exploitation of alterna tive resources for production of clean water and the afempt to integrate both waste and water management. Solu tions can include purifica tion, water saving devices, rainIharves ting systems and water monitoring systems for efficient water consumption.
Definition: The category is open for energy generation technologies utilizing undepleted and renewable resources such as solar, hydro, wind, wave and biomass. The application of technologies that will remove reliance on fossil based energy. By applying the technologies, it will reduce consumption of fossil, reduce energy bills, and create societal benefits where energy is available to all. Examples include solar powered appliances, miniIhydro, hybrid solar and wind energy capture and heat energy recovery.
Definition: The category is defined by the process of generating wealth in the form of energy, advanced materials, sugars, bioactive compounds and other form commercially viable product resulting from treatment of waste. The technology should be able to reduce man-made environmental deterioration by industrial activities by reducing the use of natural resources, which in turn recycling the carbon. Examples includes bio-oil extraction from waste, protein extraction, industrial sugars, hydrogen recovery and advanced composites.
Definition: The transportation category covers innovative technology that not only improve our means and ways of mobility, but also reduces environmental impact of mobility markets. Start-ups that are focused on electric vehicles, motorbikes, aviation, trains and fleet logistics should choose this category. Transportation encompasses transportation and mobile technology applications that improve fuel efficiency, produce biofuels for transportation, reduce air pollution, reduce oil consumption or reduce vehicle travel (not limited to automobiles). Technologies are applied directly to transportation systems or vehicles. Examples include new vehicles and new types of transport services and infrastructure, efficient and portable batteries, fuel cells and bio-based transportation fuels and use of information technologies.
Example technologies include:
Definition: The Advanced Materials and Chemicals category comprises technology that reduces or eliminates the use or generation of hazardous substances in materials or chemical products. These chemicals and advanced materials include novel detergents, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, household products, lubricants, surface and finishing materials, packaging materials and fabric.
Example technologies include:
