Start-ups Portfolio

EIT RawMaterials supports the following start-ups



Sustainable raw materials for tech applications

SiQAl offers a unique technology to produce High Purity Alumina (HPA) and Silicon, two strategic raw materials in the LED, battery and solar sectors.



Sourceless seismic

SISPROBE offers state-of-the-art source-free, cable-free, multi-component 3D seismic imaging solutions for global applications. Results are delivered in months using naturally occurring ambient seismicity in the earth, thus having a huge bottom line impact.

Smallmatek – Small Materials and Technologies, Lda


Multifunctional smart inhibitors for anti-corrosive coatings

Smallmatek is an innovation-driven company that offers integrated solutions for protection of metallic structures against corrosion. These solutions are based on a new generation of Chromium free anticorrosive pigments (ADDPRIME®) developed to be incorporated in high-performance coatings that are used in maritime, automotive and aeronautic markets.

Sociedad Europea de Analisis Diferencial de Movilidad (SEADME) SL


Developing and commercializing a unique instrumentation for the detection and characterization of trace elements

Detection of mineral ore deposits by a series of characteristic sulphur vapours, using a system composed of a light drone for sampling and our reference equipment for analysis.


Sonotecc Oy


Industrial ultrasound assisted crystallisation technology

Sonotecc is delivering new process enhancing technology to crystallization processes to bring our customers more production time, better process control and product quality improvement.

SpacEarth Technology Srl


Advance 4D Monitoring System for mining areas

SpacEarth Technology proposes a monitoring service based on a new algorithm, full 4D Local Earthquake Tomography (4DRjTomo) that has been applied to both natural and induced seismicity (injection phase at a geothermal borehole) and has been proven to by-pass the main problems related to existing competing solutions.

SPECTRAL Industries


Real-time chemical sensing

SPECTRAL Industries BV is a sensor developer focusing on applications in the mining and recycling industry. Our time-gated LIBS (Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy) system is an efficient robust product for chemical sensing of elemental composition, out in the field. Our space research inspired hardware can be used under a wide range of thermal and mechanical conditions.



Production of full-colour spectrum light emitting, non-toxic and cost-efficient quantum dots

SpectriS-Dot has developed light emitting quantum dots (QDs) covering the full-colour spectrum, based on an abundant and non-toxic material silicon (Si). Compared to competitive solutions, these C:Si QDs provide similar optical qualities, improved stability, ease of preparation and increased functionality. These C:Si QDs have the potential to replace all currently employed toxic and/or scarce materials used in LEDs and displays, as well as in a variety of other applications.



Geotechnical in-situ testing equipment for soil investigation

Studio Prof. Marchetti S.r.l. is the manufacturing company of the Marchetti Flat Dilatometer (DMT), the Seismic Dilatometer (SDMT) and other innovative equipment for onshore, nearshore and offshore soil investigation. The main activity of Studio Prof. Marchetti is to design and supply advanced equipment for worldwide on and offshore soil investigation.
