A world where everyone has access to premium drinking water.
To provide the world with sustainable premium drinking water in a socially responsible way
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.
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 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.
The water crisis
Excessive abstraction of fresh water to produce bottled water
is a threat to local watercourses and groundwater.
BOSAQ is the first Cleantech Hero
Flanders is totally cleantech! Many companies applied as candidates for the first Cleantech Hero Water technology. However, there can only be one Cleantech Hero for Water technology. And that is BOSAQ, a company that develops innovative technology for decentralised drinking water purification solutions.
More and more companies and organisations are responding to the demand for sustainability. To make their innovative cleantech solutions more widely known, Cleantech Flanders is organising the Cleantech Flanders Hero for the first time this year. Four times a year, an organisation from a different cleantech domain that develops innovative cleantech solutions is rewarded with the prestigious Cleantech Hero label. This year’s first Cleantech Hero label goes to a company that excels in water technology. The themes of circular economy, energy and mobility will follow later this year.
