Starting in Antarctica

BOSAQ’s story started at one of the most inhospitable and barren places on this planet: the Princess Elisabeth Station in Antarctica. Jacob Bossaer, CEO and founder of BOSAQ, spend 5 consecutive seasons on an expedition to Antarctica as a water engineer. The whole station operated in a smart and circular way to maximize efficiency and minimize environmental impact. While creating the circular water loop, Jacob became more aware of the global water challenges.

Jacob teamed up with his long-standing trusted partner, Pieter Derboven to found BOSAQ in 2015 with the ambition

Pieter with his doctorate in Chemical technology has contributed to providing innovative and tailored water-management solutions to save water and money, for sustainable and optimal water cycles.
