02 :46 Clean up the water in an ecological and durable way.

Innovation CNRS / ChimEco

Interview Claude Grison
03:00 The idea is to develop an organic filter that cleans the industrial effluents, heavy metals, endocrine disruptors, and neonicotinoïdes. Everything is recyclable and no waste is generated.

Texte
03 :16 The metal waste is recovered thanks to a simple and ecological procedure. It can then be reused by industry.

Interview Claude Grison
03: 24 Our innovative “Eco-catalyst” procedure, is more efficient than conventionel chemicals. It produces molecules of high quality, while purifying aquatic systems, saving water reserves and avoiding unnecessary sludge.

Texte
03 :44 ChimEco has filed 33 patents on the use of ecocatalysers in chemistry.

Interview Claude Grison
03 :48 A wide range of applications are possible- in biocosmetics, biocontrol agents, medicine, organic matter... It is a circular green economy.

Summary

Bio Inspir' studies the depolluting qualities of certain land and aquatic plants. This start-up is especially interested in water mint, a small plant native to the southern French Occitanie region that has exceptional capacities for purifying water containing metallic and organic elements. Used in the form of a powder or alive, this plant can purify contaminated water directly at industrial sites. #BioInspir' finds industrial applications for the research conducted by the laboratoire de Chimie bio-inspirée et innovations écologiques (CNRS/Université de Montpellier).
