BeeOmonitoring

Using bees as environmental drones to monitor the environment through pollen collection

Identification

The Solution targets a wide variety of issues across different sectors: water sector (water catchment zone protection from pesticides and nitrates), agriculture (pesticides reduction), industrial actors (environmental monitoring of their activities), real estate (impact of construction on the environment).

Although pollution and lack of biodiversity constitute operational, reputational, environmental and financial risks for many sectors it remains difficult for many actors to take improvement actions amongst others due to a lack of metrics. The Solution combines nature (bees acting as drones to collect billions of environmental samples on large surfaces) and technology (software processing the data). Through the analysis of the samples, BeeOmonitoring can identify, find the origin and assess the level of pollutants (heavy metals, 523 pesticides, nitrates, PAH, dioxins, GMO, radio-activity, etc.) and assess plant diversity level and quality. The Solution enables to (i) monitor industrial and agricultural pollution, (ii) assess the quality/diversity of plants, (iii) take targeted improvement decisions and (iv) implement improvement actions to enhance biodiversity.
