Antarctica, where it all began...

In 2011, Jacob Bossaer was given the opportunity to design the water treatment system in the Princess Elizabeth station in Antarctica. After spending four seasons in one of the most extreme and lonely places on earth, Jacob understood that there was a need to set up a water company.

He came back to Belgium with the idea of building BOSAQ and worked with talented engineers who had the same vision as he had in mind: to supply the world with sustainable and clean water.

BOSAQ was founded in 2015 from the outset of developing of products and services for the circular economy. The holding now consists of four main parts; the off-grid systems (the technology), Water Experts (the consulting firm), Premium water (Source Zero) and a social purpose (Water Heroes) that provides solutions for everyone who needs drinking water but can’t afford it.

since 2015

The water crisis

billion people

 still do not have toilets or improved latrines.

million people

have no access to safe water.

Essentially, only 

0 %
of the planet’s water

is available for the fuel and nutrition of 6.8 billion people

Excessive abstraction of fresh water to produce bottled water
is a threat to local watercourses and groundwater.

– WorldWatch

Agriculture accounts for

0 %

of freshwater withdrawals
from the market.


0 %

schools do not have access
to safe water and adequate sanitation.

We want to free people from the struggle for access to
drinking water by providing a
sustainable solution
that can purify water anywhere and anytime.
We want to bring equality to societies with a solution that allows them more time for education, employment and a healthy lifestyle.
