SWAN announces follow-on investment in Sonnest

SWAN is pleased to announce a follow-on investment in Sonnest.

Sonnest is transforming cardiac ultrasound. Their Electrast™ is the first electrically sensitive imaging agent for assessing and monitoring the perfusion, structure, and function of the heart, allowing low cost ultrasound procedures to provide information only previously available from much higher cost scans. Electrast™ is a contrast agent that activates with ultrasound and the heart’s local electric field if the heart tissue is perfused and viable.

SWAN previously invested in Sonnest in February and May 2021.

SWAN announces investment in Young Mountain Tea

SWAN is pleased to announce an initial investment in Young Mountain Tea.

Young Mountain Tea works directly with tea farmers in India and Nepal to create organic tea, allowing the company to meet consumer demand for transparency and authentic impact. Right now, American consumers can’t access sustainable tea because existing tea companies buy corporate-grown tea through long chains of intermediaries. Tea has the potential to transform life for Himalayan tea farmers by creating sustainable livelihoods and repairing damaged ecosystems. Young Mountain Tea also partners with farmers to also help build factories to help process the tea, which the otherwise cash-strapped farmers would not be able to build.

Announcing an Investment in Vartega

The SWAN Impact Network is pleased to announce an investment in Vartega.

Vartega creates recycled carbon fiber. Using reclaimed and recycled carbon fiber is a low-cost alternative to virgin material for automotive and industrial applications. Vartega sources carbon fiber from various dry fiber and prepreg scrap sources. This material exhibits the same mechanical properties as virgin carbon fiber. Vartega’s carbon fiber is available in semi-continuous, chopped, and milled formats. It is ideally suited for use in thermoplastics, non-wovens, and molding compounds.

Recycled carbon fiber can be used to reduce vehicle weight – increasing range and fuel economy while reducing emissions. Recycled carbon fiber has been used extensively in consumer goods as well as the oil and gas industry. Vartega’s recycled carbon fiber features virgin mechanical properties as well as minimal thermal expansion and high electrical conductivity.

By utilizing the Vartega process, thousands of tons of waste will be diverted from landfill each year. The economic impact of reduced waste disposal fees is significant, but the most substantial economic benefit of using low-cost recycled carbon fiber comes from reduced fuel consumption due to vehicle lightweighting.
