Sectors & Case Studies
Projects we have been involved in:
Food & Beverage: We’ve developed a low cost, low maintenance and effective system to sterilizing eggshells using hot air and Excimer UV lamps.
Water: We’ve enabled next-generation commercial service-oriented, automatic irrigation management systems for highly efficient use of water, fertilizers and energy in drip irrigated tree crops.
Energy & Power: We’ve created technology that turns pig by-products into a heat source to save energy costs.
Green Economy: We’ve developed an innovative bio-economy solution to turn livestock manure into a range of stabilized soil improving materials to promote sustainability and economic benefit for European agriculture.
Health & Wellness: We’ve developed a fast, cost-effective, user-friendly point of care (POC) instrument for detection of respiratory pathogens, including Streptococcus pneumonia.
