Field of Activity

The start-up BioStart deploys a technology for water remediation and the reduction of micropollutants, and in so doing, brings ground- breaking innovation to ecology.

With both scientific and industrial competencies, BioStart proposes a novel environmental remediation technology to those facing the environmental challenges of the 21st century: local collectivities, industrials, farmers, water operators etc.

Currently focused on water, BioStart intends to extend its expertise to air and soil remediation in the years to come.
Micropollutants are present in all types of everyday products, such as biocides, phytosanitary products, drugs and other consumer products. BioStart’s patented technology captures these substances in a first step and can release them in a second step to enable their recycling.

As a responsible eco- citizen, BioStart provides concrete responses to the demands of the new “Green Business” economy.
