Catalyze Klamath Falls at OIT sends two teams to InventOR

Two teams advanced from the entrepreneurship competition at Oregon Tech known as Catalyze Klamath Falls last week, hitting the #RoadtoInventOR.

A team of engineers, The Reclaimers, won top honors in K Falls.

The Reclaimers, a team of engineers who have come up with a way to turn recycled plastic into crude oil, took the top spot at Catalyze and will advance to the InventOR Semifinal event in Portland May 17-19. The team is made up of Annika Andersen, a renewable Energy engineering and electrical engineering student; and Ashlei Morgan and Jessica Arrington who both study mechanical engineering.

Direct Air Carbon Capture is the name of the game for the SODACC team.

In addition, SODACC a team of students — Justin Villers, Thomas Tappert, Robert Dandrea and Cody Taylor — who have invented an all-in-one capture and delivery system for CO2. The nontoxic and easy to handle device will pull CO2 out of the atmosphere while helping farmers increase crop yields

Like all semifinal teams, both SODACC and The Reclaimers received a prototyping grant of $500 each to further refine their inventions prior to May 17.

We look forward to seeing their prototypes in a couple of weeks!
