Which input provides your business model/core technology towards a bio-based economy?
The solution of BES Europe Ltd. can facilitate circular solutions in wastewater treatment, and remote, online sensing of organic content and toxicity, to provide smart sensors and solutions for the future bio-based industries (for example, to fermentation industries).
Which market/clients do you address and which short-term/long-term goals do you have?
Now, the target market is the wastewater treatment sector including plant operators, infrastructure developers and bio-based industries with high organic content effluent. Our solution measures and tracks BOD level through the process. Longer term, we aim to to develop biosensor networks for district, smart cities and natural water bodies and river basins - even selectively for specific compounds.
What makes your approach unique compared to other stakeholders in the field?
BES Europe Ltd. is developing biosensors with novel designs where microbes provide the signal directly, not relying on precious instruments subjected to the harsh conditions of wastewater. Current methods are based on sampling and timely lab work, while we deliver online and remote results within a few hours. The development is supported by recognized academic and industrial partners.
You can meet BES Europe in Toulouse at the START-UP VILLAGE @EFIB on 17-18 October.
