The challenges

Let's the light talking to save the planet.

The implications of poor product quality, pollutions, over use of chemicals spreading in today’s social media environment, as well as the financial consequences of a product, can be devastating to a company’s bottom line. These factors have created a demand for new and objective quality control methods. Traditional methods are costly and time-consuming. Developing rapid, non-invasive, cost-effective, and environmentally sound methods for testing has become a priority for companies. One such method with potential for both field testing, laboratory and industrial testing of products is spectroscopy.

Lab-in-the-pocket.

 

Spectroscopic instruments become smaller and lower cost, ‘‘engines’’ have emerged, leading to the possibility of being incorporated in consumer devices and smart appliances, part of the Internet of Things (IOT)

Small spectrometers are “lab-in the-pocket”, small versions of laboratory spectrometers (transportable), providing data; dedicated field analysers, providing answers to non-specialists; and process analysers, providing quantitative or semi-quantitative information to a process controller

Food Scanners for the planet

The Farm to Fork Strategy is at the heart of the European Green Deal aiming to make food systems fair, healthy and environmentally-friendly. We like to actively support the strategy with the technologies brought  by miniaturised spectrometers we can bring low-cost  food scanners that can have a range of tremendous contributions on

  • food quality,

  • food safety,

  • reducing waste,

  • combat fraud;

  • helping transition to new practices such as agro-ecology, aquaponics, urban farming

Scanners to support Agroecology

Today there is not much permanent measurements as mostly it needs expensive tests in lab. We need easy and low cost tools to know more about our environment

Farmers want to be able to have simple plant health indicators to measure directly in the field the effects of agricultural practices on crop health, and thus to be able to adjust these practices for the management of environments (soils and plants) leading to agroecological protection of plants and a significant reduction in the use of synthetic products. This demand is all the greater as the crops consume chemical inputs

Scanners for SDGs

The United Nations provides 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are an urgent call for action by all countries.  We think that SDGs Scanners can deal with challenges associated with hunger, water supply, and food security monitoring such as:

  • potential contamination,

  • soil pollutions,

  • the quality, quantities, yield rates, cost-effectiveness, and sustainability of agricultural production,

  • plastic monitoring and recycling;

  • including the packaging and transportation of food supplies and also

  • support biodiversity conservation and ecological monitoring
