Start-ups Portfolio

EIT RawMaterials supports the following start-ups



Production technology of eco-friendly nano-clay materials for paints and coatings

ALINA aims at substituting rare and toxic heavy metals used as biocides in paints and building materials by developing an innovative production technology for eco-friendly organoclay material. The clay structure is modified to be encapsulated into the structure of clay minerals.



Advanced sensor technology for real-time detection and precise measuring of sulphur and metal ions in fluids

Appsen developed the sensor technology for measuring sulphur ions such as sulphide and thiosulphate, and metal ions such as copper, iron, and cobalt in aqueous samples. Now, the main objective is development of in-line alkalinity sensor.

Atium AB


Water treatment made sustainable

Atium’s reusable filter technology allows selective removal of mercury from water, in a more effective and sustainable way than ever before.

Bambooder Biobased Fibers


High performance & technical bamboo fiber composites

Bambooder has developed a patented technology to extract ‘long’ bamboo fibers and to make an endless bamboo thread for high-performance composite applications. Composites made from Bambooder BioBased Fibers can compete with carbon, glass fiber, steel, aluminum, flax and hemp fiber.



Improving the resource efficiency of lithium-ion batteries through remanufacturing

Designing guidelines for a resource-efficient and cost-optimized remanufacturing of lithium-ion batteries; development of an overall concept for a remanufacturing battery; demonstrator development and validation of concepts.

Bettery S.r.l.


Changing the paradigm with the green, long-lasting & fast recharge liquid batteries

We aim at bringing green liquid battery into the market, with the highest specific energy and safety associated with the lowest cost and recharge time ever reported. Our battery can also be recharged by substituting the liquid, in a time similar to refilling a vehicle tank with gasoline. The anode is based on lithium metal and the cathode is an O2-rich flowable electrod.

Recycling, Circular Economy



An ad-sponsored collection system for WEEE

By motivating users to bring back old electronic devices Binee aims to increase the collection rate and create transparency along the secondary value chain.



Environmentally-friendly chemicals from biomass, including 1,3 Butadiene for rubber production

Biokemik initiative will convert renewable resources into competitive Butadiene monomer and high-value intermediates. It will offer “Environmentally Friendly Chemicals” (1,3 Butadiene, Acetoine, 2,3 Butanediol, Methyl-Ethyl Ketone) from non-alimentary renewable resources (biomass), for Rubber, Elastomers, Plastics and Fine Chemicals, with low Carbon Footprint, in multiple applications. The main differential feature is that the Chemicals are obtained from cheap and abundant renewable sources, as compared to the fossil origin from 100% of the world’s synthetic monomer. The proprietary microorganisms involved are key aspects from the technological and economical perspectives.



Water treatment products for cleaner future

BioSO4 Oy develops novel and original water treatment products and also acts as a distributor supplying to global mining reagent producers.
