InOpSys NV develops and operates innovative on-site solutions for considered nonrecyclable water, solvent and waste streams. The solution consists of combined technologies in modular and mobile units. Customers in pharmaceuticals, chemicals and fine chemicals are offered OPEX based, "pay-per-use", sustainable alternative to transport and incineration. Valuable components (metals, solvents, ...) and purified water are recovered. InOpSys provides WAAS (Water As A Service) and CAAS (Circular economy As A Service) to the pharma and chemical industry. The InOpSys solution drastically reduces CO2 emissions and closes the valuable raw material loops. Founded in December 2015, the company originated out of an idea within Catalisti and is a spin-off from KU Leuven university.
