The world faces many environmental, economic, and health challenges. Commitment to sustainable development is key to the survival of future generations and must be a global effort. To achieve sustainable development, continuous progress and innovation of science and technology is necessary to introduce new sources of resources and energy, develop zero to low carbon emissions, and contribute to a greener economy.


Technological innovation and impact has always been a key focus of BEYOND Expo to bring together the global innovation ecosystem and promote cross-border cooperation across various industries. As the conference is focused on showcasing cutting-edge innovation and facilitating discussions between innovators and investors, the organizing committee launched BEYOND Awards to recognize founders and entrepreneurs in tech. At present, the review of the BEYOND Innovation Award is in progress.


Since launch, over 300 projects have been nominated for the BEYOND Innovation Awards. The BEYOND Awards Committee is currently reviewing projects for 2nd round selections. After all three stages of a virtual roadshow, offline roadshow, and video submission review, 90 companies will be selected to move on for the final round.



On August 25th, 2022, the BEYOND Organizing Committee and the China Alliance of Social Value Investment held a virtual roadshow for the BEYOND Awards Sustainability Innovation Awards. Ten outstanding innovation teams displayed their products and services to a judging panel, who assessed each project on technological innovation, market value, and core capabilities. Experts from the Youth Committee for Sustainable Development were also invited to assess the projects. The purpose is to discover innovative companies with cutting-edge innovative technologies and enhance interaction among the global ecosystem players, such as corporate leaders, entrepreneurs, investors, experts, and government representatives. We would also like to acknowledge Bayswork for their support for our venue.

Company Name: HurRain NanoTech (Beijing) Technology Co., Ltd.
Project Name: New Air-to-Water Products
HurRain NanoTech is a technology-based enterprise that empowers multi-industry scenarios with advanced functional nanomaterials. It takes advanced materials and functional devices as its innovation direction, and takes human health and sustainable development as its mission and value goals. The core technology of the project comes from the transformation of scientific and technological achievements accumulated by the team of professors at Tsinghua University for several years. He has won dozens of qualifications including the UN 75th Anniversary Special Award. It has been widely reported by well-known domestic media such as People’s Daily Online and Xinhuanet.
Currently, nearly one-fifth of the world’s population (1.2 billion) lives in areas with physical water scarcity, and nearly one-quarter of the world’s population (1.6 billion) faces economic freshwater shortages. It is estimated that by 2025, there will be three Two-thirds of the population are under stress on freshwater resources. The project deeply develops the world’s leading passive air water intake technology, and the production of large quantities of clean water that is not limited by water sources and does not harm the groundwater environment. It breaks the bottlenecks of existing membrane filtration and distillation equipment, such as high cost, limited source water, and complicated operation and maintenance. It will deeply empower vertical fields such as off-grid infrastructure, smart oceans, emergency equipment, and Belt and Road assistance, fundamentally solve the crisis of human drinking water shortage.


After the project roadshow, Huang Zhimin, Director of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Bay Area Public Service Platform for Youth Entrepreneurship and Executive Director of the Youth Committee for Sustainable Development, invited a judge to speak on the Sustainability Innovation Award.
“I am very pleased to learn from today’s roadshow that many teams are benefiting more people through continuous technological innovation and can use appropriate marketing methods to promote these technologies to the market in combination with some existing government policies in company operations. Today I am quite impressed with the project of HurRain NanoTech, because I have been to many water-scarce areas when I was working in Africa. On the one hand, the cost of using water purifiers in these water-scarce areas is very high, and HurRain NanoTech can reduce costs through technological innovation, its market is foreseeable; on the other hand, many energy investment companies will operate water purification as a public welfare project, and HurRain NanoTech’s business model is very clear, it has been able to create considerable income and has received multiple rounds of investment. I am very happy to participate in today’s Innovation Roadshow. I have seen new ideas from many teams, and I look forward to seeing further development of all participating projects in the future.”
—— Sharon Zhang

“It can be seen that there are many technical innovations in the participating projects. At the same time, I also found that many projects will have some cooperation with government departments. I think the biggest challenge is the marketing and public relations of the projects. The main creative teams of many projects are from scientific research backgrounds. The lack of government background research may bring certain pressure on product sales. Integrate the characteristics and needs of the government and industry into the system, and slowly drive a single modular operation. I think the project can consider more improvements in this regard. But overall, I think the quality of these projects is very high, and I can see that many projects have successfully created and updated products through technological innovation, and have rapidly developed the market. I believe the development will improve in the future.”
