Nowadays about 25% of agricultural soils in the world are contaminated by pollutants. Despite the impact it has a negative impact on human health, these pollutants are too diffuse to be treated by conventional ways. The goal of our startup is to treat agricultural contaminated soils by natural and local plants called hyperaccumulators. These plants are able to remove pollutants from the soils.
Our team is composed of Patricia Gifu (PhD in cancerology / engineer in biotechnology), Damien Michelon (PhD in microbiology) and Ludovic VINCENT (engineer specialized in soil bio-decontamination). We have been awarded the financial support Ademe belonging to the program innovative agriculture and investments for the futur. We have also been the winners of the contest Feed the Future which was held in Paris in 2017. We have met and exchanged with the fundation Solarimpulse on our stand during the Vivatech event in Paris where we were one of the social impact startups
