Start-ups Portfolio

EIT RawMaterials supports the following start-ups



Condition monitoring and live and historical data analysis

talpasolutions provides condition monitoring and underground orientation based on sensor data of machines. Instead of losing time by collecting and verifying dispersed information and suffering from costly technical downtimes, talpasolutions’ platform service – asset analytics – offers communication, analysis, and collaboration for fast and actionable insights.



Industrial Internet of Things for mass-monitoring of rock bolts

ThingWave AB is an innovation company working with Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) primarily targeting the mining industry. ThingWave has products and services for mass-monitoring of rock reinforcements, e.g. rock bolts. The main product is the Smart Rock bolt, a wireless system for integration of and monitoring of standard rock bolts.

Timegate Instruments


Real-time management of material flows in the mining industry

Timegate Instruments opens up optimum visibility to the chemical composition of materials. This enables to get more out of material analyses and industrial processes in an environmentally friendly manner with minimal distraction and without delays.



Tantalum recycling from printed circuit boards (PCB)

The objective of the project is to upscale the technology aiming at extracting tantalum from printed circuit boards (PCB) that is currently at TRL 5 and to define the right specification for the future industrial plant which should be constructed in 2017, as well as to produce samples of purified tantalum to potential customers.

Tosca Solutions


Optimising core operations for safety-critical activity

Tosca Solutions is a campus company based in Trinity College Dublin to offer support for implementing risk management tools customised specifically to the needs of a highly regulated environment.



Lighter structural parts for energy and cost reduction

Superior, simple, scalable and cost-efficient method for increasing the toughness of epoxy resins which allows for the substitution of high strength structural steels by composite parts leads. This leads to lighter and consequently cheaper and less energy consuming airplanes and vehicles and lighter and long-lasting wind turbine blades, pressure vessels and electronic parts.


Tuscan Tech


Technological solutions for the electrochemical storage of electric energy

Tuscan Tech is an innovative startup operating in the energy sector, whose mission is the planning, design, research, prototyping, production and development of technological solutions for the electrochemical storage of electric energy.


Ulix Innovation


Manufacturing of high-performance graphene-based battery packs (G-pack) for energy storage and supply

Ulix Innovation aims to develop, manufacture and commercialise graphene-based battery pack (G-pack) for domestic energy supply and mobility markets. Compared to common Lithium-Ion batteries, the G-pack offers better performance in terms of energy density, power density, durability and ultimately also lower production costs.


Value Ash Technologies


Separation of fly ash and similar dry powders in 1 to 100 micron ranges

Fly ash is the by-product of combustion of coal. It is the most produced and landfilled waste globally. The novel technological separation solution that Value Ash Technologies NV has developed is the Dusty Plasma Separator (DPS). It can separate fly ash or other dry (waste) powders in ranges of around 1 to 100 micron in 3 to 4 different fractions at once. It does so in a totally closed system. This eliminates the need for expensive filter systems. This also meets occupational health regulations.
