“If it is possible to manage water in a sustainable way in the most extreme and remote places in the world, then it must be possible everywhere.” 

Jacob Bossaer – CEO & Founder of BOSAQ     

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 and has been a company from the outset where the development of products and services is in line with the circular economy. The holding now consists of four main parts; the off-grid systems (the technology), Water Experts (the consulting firm), Premium water and a social purpose (Water Heroes) that provides solutions for everyone who needs water..
